Bonfire Cookery Extravaganza!

Tuesday, October 4th 2011

The fruits of Autumn were celebrated today with a bonfire cookery day in conjunction with Plantlife. The regular Tuesday volunteers got  a bonfire underway in the morning and later on more people joined in to cook on the flames and embers.

Pancake mix, cake mix, bannock and twister dough were all prepared in the kitchen.

Preparing the bonfire feast

The twister dough was cooked on the end of Willow sticks.

Cooking up a feast

Richard and David looked like a pair of gnomes fishing in a pond!

Twister dough

Terry's pancakes were delicious served with honey. Bannock with hazelnuts was shared (this Scottish unlevened bread must never be cut with a knife as it is bad luck)! Other highlights included sausages, quiche, baked potatoes with butter and cheese, bananas with melted chocolate, bramley apples with raisins and brown sugar and cakes cooked in orange skins. All in all, a great feast!

Meanwhile, Robin was hard at work felling trees in the plantation.

Anne, Ruth and Elizabeth went for a wildflower walk and identified 47 plants in flower, an incredible amount considering it is October!
