LATEST UPDATE (18 October 2017, about upcoming Village Greens, Friday 20 October)
The hedgerow has been fighting back again. This time it was chestnuts. Like a herd of hedgehogs, they present a spiny exterior from every angle, so it was gloves on to round them up. They have now been relieved of all the prickles and roasted in the oven. We did wonder if the casings would serve as slug repellers, like a palisade around the tender vegetables. This has yet to be tested, but seems to hold a certain menacing promise.
There will be fresh back bacon in the chiller this week, and green veg includes courgettes, leeks, calabrese and kale. Other Autumn treats include large squash and red cabbage, with a Mexican Squash and Bean Soup in the cafe, along with all the other usual menu throughout the day. Christmas baking essentials are all now on our shelves, including currants, raisins, sultanas, cherries, cranberries, almonds and walnuts. Stock up, and bake a delicious festive cake or pudding.
Cakes that are hard to resist
