I like to wrap up in an Ltd #artcarf by Schimjolie as some of you might have noticed 😀
But as it happens I also like to make eatable wraps from scratch and here is my recipe:
Spelt Flour – Olive oil from Oliviers&CO – Pinch of Salt – Baking Powder – Milk
I don’t like to make too much fuss about measuring so I just take the flour (important to save some for the pressing out part) and add some salt, baking powder and olive oil. Then I add milk until the dough is firm and sticky!
Here you can take a break …that’s what I do! I put the dough into a plastic bag and store it in the refrigerator until I want to continue 😀
In my case it is the next day…
Or you can just leave it in the bowl put some cling film over and wait 20 minutes:D
Look at this!! Isn’t she great! This is my wonderful niece Lisa Anna: I got a phone call from my brother last week. He asked if I was available for an assignment because he had this brilliant idea for a picture he wanted in his new house!
And you know what?
As it happens, and as I told you in an earlier blog post, I will say YES when friends and acquaintances ask me to do a photo-job!
So here Lisa Anna and I are kind of cooking.… She is holding a crab to the left and a crayfish to the right! I’m holding my Leica M8, and the two of us are at least cooking together a picture…!!
I think the photo came out fantastic!
Bring them on these all these untraditional and fun assignments!
Yesterday we spent time on grandmas farm again and we came home with a large bag of plums!
For the first time in my life I have made jam….. it wasn’t rocket science, It was more like a test of your patience….well, the most time-consuming job was to remove the stones out of 2-3 kilo plumes, but with that done I just put some water, not much, into the pan and poured 1 deciliter sugar in as well.
I also found a couple of cinnamon sticks and one vanilla bean I threw in!
After, I read on the pack, that the sugar is supposed to be added after the plums have boiled. But I don’t worry about that! I’ll do it that way next time, hihi!! It also said I needed to add a whole kilo of sugar! No way!
I added the «Jam-Pack», to make the jam more firm, like it said on the pack and then I added 1 deciliter more sugar – in my taste and health opinion, more than enough!

Here are some photos from my little jam workshop, hihi, all dressed up in a SchimJolie
