The Green Grocer

8 Jul

Shopping Day. Not the supermarket chore it used to be. Now it involves buying up bulk at the peaceful bulk food shop, then popping next door to the family-owned green grocer.

They also give away big bags of fruit and vege scraps – ideal for chickens or to boost your compost. You get to chat about the state of the nation and the weather for free too.

I wrote this recipe on a scrap of paper in my *special* kind of shorthand, and then adapted it to my ‘no time for scales’ style. Sorry to the Danish Bread-Making Community for the lack of accuracy.

  • Add 1 teaspoon salt and 700g flour (or I…
