The boys and lady spent all day today either making reinforcing or concrete.
I went down with the camera after lunch but didn’t hang around long as the two young fellas went all shy and forgot how many buckets of sand went into the mix and then added too much concrete powder as well! I didn’t want to see what would happen with the water or stones so beat a hasty retreat.
This is what I did take however.
This afternoon I had another crack at making some damper. This was my third attempt (fourth if you count the time I accidentally used MSG instead of sugar.) I am just using normal bread flour, water and a bit of sugar and salt. Today I added some raisons and vegemite. I wrap it in foil and place it on one of these clay pots full of hot coals.
When I took this photo I was cooking Pork.
Every attempt is getting better but it is still too wet in the middle, it doesn’t seem to matter how long I cook it for. Any suggestions?
