Our staff recipes continue with inspiration from our delightful farm colleague, Dave. When asked for his favourite way to cook or eat something off the farm at harvest time, his charmingly unexpected response was…. ginger nuts! Dave says they are “amazing – I’ve baked these for the farm team and they always go down a storm. Melvyn said they are the nicest biscuits he’s ever had. I substitute Our Cow Molly butter for a better flavour and add a little more ginger. Not farm produce, but it’s a treat that keeps us going sometimes.” The recipe is from Linda Collister’s Baking Bible.
In a post-script nod to Regather farm’s veg bounty, Dave’s favourite way to cook curly kale is to drizzle with a little cold-pressed rapeseed oil and flash through a hot oven until it crisps a little bit, like seaweed.
