Growing Together – March 2021

It’s March and there’s a lot to be getting on with in the garden as Spring begins and the days grow longer.  Ann-Marie and Claire discuss what seeds they’ve started to sow and where they’ve sown them – let’s just say there’s not a lot of space in their kitchens.

Ann-Marie announces news of her new book ‘My Real Garden’ and they remember a year ago when lockdown started and how important our green spaces have become.

With tips on planting summer bulbs and creating wildlife ponds for biodiversity, Ann-Marie and Claire share a few gardening confessions too.  It’s all in this month’s edition of Growing Together.

Try Boeekos for International Women’s Day

Yifat Castle from Mooka Gelato offers Noni Needs a heavenly smelling, simple and quick and easy recipe from her childhood.

It is called Boeekos pronounced (bo ee kos).

They are a sort of a cheese bun/scone and originate in the Balkan (the recipe is from Yifat’s neighbour who was from Bulgaria).

You will need : 

350g self raising flour 
1 Large egg
200g melted butter 
250g cottage cheese 
100g of grated Cheddar cheese 
100g Parmesan or pecorino
100g Feta cheese

For decoration:
Sesame seeds
An egg or a bit of milk for brushing 

Equipment:
Bowl and a large spoon
Lightly greased Muffin tray for 12 muffins 

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. You can do this by hand or using a free standing mixer. There might still be few cheesy lumps but as long it’s all incorporated you are good to go!
Divide the mix evenly into the 12 spaces In your muffin tray. It looks like a horrible sticky mess but fear not ! The result is impressive and addictive too.
Brush with milk or egg and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Bake in an oven at 200c for about 20 minutes. You will know the buns are ready because your kitchen would smell heavenly and the buns would be lightly browned . Cool down and enjoy as a light lunch with a little salad or just as a snack. 
* if you don’t have a muffin tray you can roll out the mix/ dough by hand and put on a baking tray covered in baking parchment. They might look a bit wonky but that’s ok; I look a bit wonky too but still gorgeous.

If you want to get Mooka by the scoop visit Fitzcane’s in Chichester or Shakeadelic in Chichester. You can also buy it by the tub from Madelein’s kitchen in Lavant street.

The Petersfield Town Twinning Song

Ray Vogt of the Petersfield Twinning Association has used part of his lockdown to write a song to honour Petersfield’s relationships with its two twin towns in France and Germany.

Petersfield is twinned with Barentin in France and Warendorf in Germany.

In normal times members of the twinning organisations of each town make annual visits to or from the other towns.

This is not possible at present, nor has it been possible for the association to pursue its normal calendar of social events.

It’s in this context that Ray has written the song to cheer us all up.

The song has been shared with the two twin towns. Ian Chambers of the Twinning Association says it has been well received.

Official lyrics

There is a pretty place in the South Downs
The people there are friendly they are nice
This place is Petersfield, it’s a small town
With a little market and some handsome sights

‘Twas many years ago that some people
From Petersfield looked for friends afar
They didn’t have to be grand or regal
Just normal, not too strange and not bizarre

Chorus:
A twinning we will go
A twinning we will go
In Warendorf and Barentin
We’ll see some lovely sights
And spend some jolly nights
With beer, Schnaps et un peu de vin

In Warendorf /Westphalia they struck lucky
And found the people there were keen to twin
The town is pretty and the food is yummy
Not to go and see yourself would be a sin

Barentin in France is just as charming
With cafés and statues everywhere
It’s rich in history and there’s some farming
And lots of joie de vivre in the air

Chorus

In spite of Covid and in spite of Brexit
We will keep our twinning link alive
We know we will return and you will visit
So let our friendship grow and let it thrive

Chorus
