The Slowpoke: HOW TO MAKE SOURDOUGH Today, we bake bread. A good, honest sourdough loaf using a wild yeasted sourdough starter. If you didn’t catch the tutorial on making and maintaining your own sourdough starter you’ll find it here. Piero Pignatti Morano from Two Chaps, who has been talking us through the process, is back again with his well-tested recipe for a simple sourdough loaf.

Honey-roasted pumpkin + borlotti bean salad

June

The Slowpoke: HONEY-ROASTED PUMPKIN + BORLOTTI BEAN SALAD With pumpkins in abundance it’s a great time to tuck into a warm salad of them roasted with ethical and locally sourced honey. Hearten it up further with a good serve of beans and hazelnuts. This recipe is a great one from Chrissy Freer’s new book on the power of legumes, Superlegumes.

HOW TO: GROW GARLIC

April

The Slowpoke: PLANTING GARLIC Not one for the impatient among us, garlic is however a relatively easy crop to grow. Left in the ground (or pot) for around eight months, with a little water and good soil you’ll have your own supply of chemical-free homegrown garlic by the time late spring rolls around. And now’s the time to plant.

BASIC PASTA SAUCE

March

The Slowpoke: BASIC PASTA SAUCE We said goodbye to summer over the weekend and a welcome hello to the cooler, slower, calmer months of autumn. And with the change comes a time of plentiful harvest. Many summer crops will soon give their last hurrah, tomatoes being one of them. So we preserve.
