I baked more Pressed Flower Biscuits toad and showed our lovely neighbour the Almanac in which I had found the recipe. She reminded me of the Book of Days from centuries ago that had the same quirky information.
I love how every detail of the treatment of the wool and the subsequent fabric are described and how the bet was won – and what a huge sum of money the bet was!
Here are some of the lovely treasures.
You may remember, Dear Reader, that I wrote about Cornish Hurling at the end of last month. You can see the post by clicking here. My letter was published in The Guardian yesterday!
We have a delightful little book. Every month has information about the moon and the tides, bird of the month, what to plant and what to harvest , a recipe and a folk song for the month. It is really lovely. I looked ahead to July and found a recipe for Flower Biscuits..
So, I made some! They are a bit shortbready and have the edible flowers pressed into the biscuit before baking and a lemony glaze when they come out of the oven.
