Getting in the swing with the Kotlich

Just practicing, 35lbs of Marmalade made in the Kotlich.  Tomorrow will be the real thing, with the Marketing Manager, who thinks he will be in contril.  We will be more adventurous making marmalade with both Ginger and Chili.  The Marketing Manager wants to make Garlic Marmalade but I really don't agree.  We are using 18 month old Ash offcuts, twigs and small sized logs, but they are still sizzling!  Had to steal a couple of logs from the house pile, dead Elm, which we cut down last month.  A good supply of free wood is vital for all Kotlich cooks.

I've ordered 20k of Seville Oranges to cook up, in the Kotlich, with the help of the Marketting Consultant!

The Hungry Sailors again!!  ITV Wednesday 1st February

Can hardly beleave it. The dear Hungry Sailorsare using the wonderful Kotlich grill this time. They are slowly grilling aubergines and making a wonderful warm aubergine, roasted garlic and lemon zest mash to dip their Naan bread in! Wonderful to see roasted/char grill vegetables in the grill. We have done courgettes and red peppers but not Aubergine.

The Kotlich produces a great goat curry with Dick and James Strawbridge at the helm.

Dick and James Strawbridge are sailing around the coast of Britain looking for local producers and growers. They visit a goat farm and then proceed to use the Kotlich, tripod and firepit with great flare. They prepare and cook a goat curry which was really appreciated by the crew and those who they invited to supper.  I was worried that he does not use enough liquid, we will never know!!

Stinging Nettle Soup

Been crawling around in the hedgerows in rubber gloves, snipping off stinging nettle heads.  Walkers passing looked most surprised!  Got a good fire going and used my old recipe.  Tasted delicious but not quite thick enough.  Two carrier bags of stinging nettles, 3 potatoes, garlic, onion and seasoning.  I think stingers are an aquired taste, rather like shrimps!!
