It seems that the Plough Inn pub and restaurant in Powburn is now closed until further notice. A handwritten notice has been placed on a blackboard outside the pub as follows:
A recipe by May Wilson, Powburn
In the last issue of Cheviot Views newsletter (Issue 23), May Wilson gave us a ‘Recipe for Success’ to make Spiced Toffee Apple Cake. Unfortunately, we omitted to publish the ingredients for the toffee sauce. As a few keen bakers have contacted us to get the ingredients so that they can try out May’s recipe, we thought we’d set out recipe again – this time with all the ingredients. Enjoy!
Sloe news: blackthorn fruit
Since the first flowering of blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) in Spring the Autumn can now boast a few handfuls of sloes – the fruit of the blackthorn.
Blackthorn is a deciduous shrub/tree growing to about 5m in height. Its very dark, almost black bark, and the profusion of large, stiff thorns give it its name.
What a great garden tea!
Thanks to the hard work of everyone who organised the Tea in the Garden event that took place yesterday I, for one, woke up this morning with a smile on my face.
What a wonderful time we had in Powburn’s Community Garden yesterday afternoon. Having had a few drops of rain in the morning, the sun came out almost on cue at 3 o’ clock, jumpers came off, and…the party began!
