So much to blog about and so little time! Here’s a quick splurge update to keep you informed:-
In our new home at long last in the highlands, and as of this weekend we finally have all our own gear in said home – including hobie the mixer (let batch bakes recommence). A few pics below of arrival antics – digging the doughies veg patch and cooking up some #realbread #localfood pizzas
Met the friendly and welcoming Mike Shaw of Golspie mill today, who kindly showed me round one of the last (maybe even the last) working watermill up in Sutherland (despite fighting the flu). And whilst there picked up a big sack of rye, a big sack of wholewheat, and a little trial of plain flour. Time to start our new highland sourdough cultures me thinks!
Received some new gear today from the guys at bakery-bits as follows:-
> some half decent digital scales (at long last)
> a new super sharp lame for dough slashing
> two boule basket alternatives (cane & lined wicker – trial to follow)
> a handy plastic dough scraper
