Does anyone else get those rolling waves of homesickness even when you’re at home? I’m having waves of that sensation this morning and well, enough now.
My cooking mojo seems to have returned:
– I made another sourdough last night and it worked a treat. Not as sour but I’m guessing that’s because I’d only fed the starter a few days earlier.
– Firstly, I did it all by hand – a much better idea as it is quite a ‘wet’ dough. I only did a light knead – about 4 minutes, then left it to rise, and then knocked it back very lightly before it’s second rising.

I also made a jam roly poly. Mainly because I’ve always wanted to and there was a recipe for one in the latest Gourmet Traveller. I even made the citrus jam that went in it. Photos and recipe to follow.
