Does anyone reckon I could use baker's yeast to make ginger beer?

 

There's some sachets knocking around along with some ginger and I was curious.

 

I'm on a bit of a home-made food stuff roll at the moment; chilli relish and chilli sauce, pickled mushrooms and now possibly ginger beer.

 

(The internet is a bit too nerdy when it comes to home-brewing talk.)

Anyone else use a bread maker? The missus uses it most nights and I have to say that the bread is delicious. One hundred times better than a purchased loaf.

I had one for a while. The results were okay, but I don't eat bread as much as I used to, so eventually I gave it away.

 

I occasionally make soda bread, which doesn't take as long, but it's been a while since I made a regular loaf.

I try to cut back on my bread intake, but it's very difficult when there's a pot of caramelised onion houmous in the fridge.

Agree, I may be a bit odd but I really enjoy making bread when I have the time and the family love sitting down to fresh homemade bread for lunch. I have a bread maker for churning out basic loaves but making bread by hand is far superior IMHO,

 

Family favourites are baguettes and rosemary foccacia. Serve with cheese and olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping the bread in.

We've got a decent break maker and use the premium bread mixes from Lakeland.  Stick the water in the thing, stick the mix in the thing, put in the right amount of yeast then leave it.  It's a lovely thing smelling the fresh bread cooking away with the smell wafting through the entire house.

I agree, the Lakeland mixes are pretty good.

 

I have (somewhere) a copy of Pat Chapman's 'Curry Club' Middle Eastern cookery book, with recipes for several varieties of flatbreads, which are quick and easy to make. Seems to be o/p now, but is available second-hand on the likes of Amazon for pennies (plus the usual postage charge).

I had steak & kidney pudding last night, for the first time in years. Delicious - why did I leave it so long since last time?  :no2:

 

Served with marrowfat peas and potato, parsnip & chestnut croquettes. Good, rich, hearty winter food.

I'm trying to be good and am cutting down on my alcohol intake. Last night for the first time ever I had only one glass of wine ( I always used to wonder what on earth was the point of those wine saver corks.)
So now that I'm in touch with my feminine side ( keep your snide comments to yourselves) can anyone recommend a half decent red in a box? Or is it all rubbish.
I suppose if I'm now getting 3 sessions from a bottle I can afford a better class of wine. But is there any such thing as decent boxed wine?

I am a Naked Wine Angel and can say if you like your red's beefy and bold and to last the night without opening another bottle then go for the Arabella range which are extra dimension wines in taste, the problem is they are so good you might go back to your old ways.
