Every day I want to record three things that have given me pleasure. This 3BT site is the original Three Beautiful Things.
Okay, I can't help it. I gotta know.What are crumpets?I've heard about them for years, but being from the states, I haven't a clue what they are!P.S.you left no comment. Did you enjoy the pictures?
I like making puff ball mushrooms puff out spores!i just cant seem to find 'em any more :P
being from canada, i have to ask: how cold does it have to be to eat crumpets? (i DO know what they are!!)
I agree!! Puffball mushrooms ARE cool when they blow out clouds of spores. Are there many mushrooms in the UK? You should speak to my friend Hana (hanaaskren.blogspot.com), who could recommend a few good books ... Daniel.
yummmmmm...hot crumpets with honey dripping from the bottom...or vegemite, now you're talking!
Daniel: There are quite a few mushrooms in the UK. I forget how many species, but I am constantly seeing new, unfamiliar ones on my walks through the woods.The Guy: I think that some years are better than others for mushrooms, so perhaps that's why you haven't seen any puffballs for a while.Featherhead: A crumpet is a sort of bread, or maybe a pancake. It's about the diameter of cup and about 3cm thick. The bottom is brown and the rest of it is a creamy yellow colour. It has a slightly rubbery texture and the top is covered in holes. They are best toasted and spread with butter, which drips into all the holes. And I loved the pictures.
Clare, how great to meet you via blog world! I love your words, I love the "English" vocabulary. Your beautiful thought about "being cold enough to eat crumpets" is a beautiful thing indeed. Here in Georgia of USA, my beautiful thing is that's it's finally cold enough to smell burning leaves outside, to wear a jacket, and to feel really alive! Thank you for your wonderful and beautiful thoughts.Dawn
I just went foraging over the weekend and got my first puffballs, but I didn't know you could poof the spores out! Must try.
Ahh crumpets. Just bought my first pack of the winter this very morning and then stumbled across this post. Always toast - never microwave.Lovely blog you've got here.x
Indeed, I just ruffled through my freezer drawer and rescued a pack of crumpets from deep permafrost. They are best served with an English Monkey topping. Thanks for the reminder now that inclement weather is upon us.
