Golden Onions, Walk and Raw Chocolate Brownie

23 Nov

1   This morning the low beams of the winter sun caught our homegrown plaited onions and made them even more beautiful.

2   We had a walk around the Great Flat Lode behind our house today. There was a surprising amount of colour – golden gorse, Pink Campions, red berries and lovely green moss with ivy leaves and, on this crisp clear day, a very good blue view of the sea on the North coast of Cornwall.

3  I’ve made Raw Chocolate Brownies this afternoon for some friends on Tuesday. They are surprisingly fudgy and yummy!

    You had a better day than we had in the northeast, so nothing new there 🙂 Very impressed by the plaited onions – almost a shame to eat them…….the chocolate brownie, on the other hand, should be eaten in one sitting.

    What a lovely part of the world you live in. The view is beautiful. I love the bunch of onions hanging. I never ate onions before marrying. How one’s ways change with the ” I Do!” 🙂

    You are right, the sunlight did make your onions look beautiful. How long do you hang them up to dry before you use them?

      I start using them straight away. That’s how I store them. I use any with soft necks first. In fact i don’tl plait those. Thank you for calling in.:)

    Good to see where you live. Such wonderful countryside and of course the sea. Is your house the one with the white wall?

      We’re the other half, the yellow wall, the one on the right.:)
