There is only one thing that I grow to eat in my garden and that is garlic.
I just pop a few cloves out of the fridge in the ground in the Autumn, as the prepared cloves you can buy at the garden centre cost as much as a whole head of garlic at the greengrocers!
So here is my latest harvest drying on the dish drainer having been dug up and washed.
I am also going to show you my latest bread tin. It is supposed to create a crisper crust. So I thought I ought to try it out.
I made a white loaf and decided to try using a Stanley knife to cut a slash in the top. I think I must give up trying as I am just no good at it, whatever I use!
Here is the final loaf. I had wondered if it would be difficult to get out of the tin if the dough pressed into the holes but it was okay.
However there were little pimples over the sides and base of the loaf. If you look back to photo of the tin you can see there are less holes on the ends where the ‘crusts’ are created: sort of counter-intuitive. The first crust I cut off was lovely and crisp and crunchy but by the next day the crust was just ordinary, as crusts tend to be. So not sure if it makes a difference. I do have tins of a similar size with no holes maybe I need to make two loaves at once and compare.
