Paul is continuing to experiment with his gluten free bread making. One of his new recipes listed psyllium husk as an ingredient (as well as rice flour, potato starch flour and buckwheat). Paul visited our local Green Pantry to buy the psyllium husk and was concerned that he was only able to get 200 gms even though he needed 240 gms. I was more concerned at the £9.00 he paid for it!
Reading the recipe a little closer he realised that he only needed 20 gms of
husk mixed with 240 gms of water! So in
actual fact he has enough now for 10 loaves and no one else in the district
will be able to buy the stuff because he bought the whole lot!
The good news is that after eating quite a lot of the bread I did not experience any bloating or discomfort. This is a very encouraging result for me.

It was lovely to see the wild lilac and hawthorn just coming into bloom when I took Rick out for his walk around the village. He is quite sad at the moment that he can’t spend all day outside in his garden, the weather is just too cold, wet and windy. Needless to say we are still waiting for that first bicycle ride of the year.
