Make this blackberry gin recipe ahead of Christmas with just three ingredients and it will be ready to enjoy over ice or as a dop in a glass of fizz over the festive period. It will keep for a month so label accordingly.
The Ultimate Caramel Shortbread from James Morton's How Baking Works cookbook. It’s not often that I am arrogant enough to believe that my recipe should be the standard on which all others are based. But here I am saying just that. It’s not only the best caramel shortcake I’ve ever had, but I’ve gone to great pains to keep the steps and ingredients very simple, too.
great passive solar design- I would plant row of deciduous trees in front of glass so that in the winter that could act as a giant trombe wall but be shaded to keep it cool in the summer. Trees that max out at 2 stories would allow south face 3rd level roof to accommodate panels!
