  5. Crop to Crust – The Sequel

    Crop to Crust – The Sequel
    I love that part of our small business at BakeryBits supports and promotes other like-minded businesses. Take British flour mills for example - not just because they produce fantastic tasting flour, but also because buying their flour supports our dwindling stock of working traditional mills, helping to conserve an important part of our history and sustain rural communities.

  9. An International Flavour for your Apples

    An International Flavour for your Apples
    For the first year since planting I have a little glut of apples. It’s taken about 10 years to get this far and I suspect in the years to come I’ll suddenly be up to my neck in them. For now though I don’t want to waste them. Driving around at the moment I notice apples all over the place...
  10. Tibetan Monastery bread

    Tibetan Monastery bread
    I’ve been putting my bees to bed for the winter. Beekeeping always seems to be portrayed as some nostalgic art more at home in a bonnet drama, with permanently blue skies and a bearded monk strolling around a beautifully calm apiary and tons of lovely honey.
