News: More cooking, more willow
Our one to one sessions have involved more activities in the greenhouse, as the weather has been a bit too wet over the last few weeks!
This week’s lunch was paneer korma with rice. We experimented with modifying a pre-made sauce, by first frying some onions and adding diced potatoes and sweet potatoes. We ended up putting microwaveable rice into the sauce to heat through, as attempts to steam it over the cooking curry didn’t work!
After lunch, we tried a simple basket making technique, by using some timber from our handy scrap wood pile. We drilled holes around the edge and put willow uprights in, then wove around them. It looks great, and is really useful!
