After 25mins in the oven at 180°C, I tend to remove the spring form sides, and egg-wash all exposed surfaces.
Then bake for another 15-20mins.
If you want to go the full cold pork pie route, poke a small hole in the crust and fill with pork jelly, and allow to fully cool in the fridge. Otherwise you can eat it hot.
Then you want to press in your filling. In this case, it's roast pork which I've sliced thin, then diced roughly. I also put a layer of sliced roast potato in the bottom, and spread some leftover applesauce in the middle.
Press it down firmly. Then roll out the top, and place it on top of the pie. Press in pastry edges in to seal to the pastry case.
If there's any leftover pastry, you can add some pastry decorations. I like to put little pigs on my roast pork pies.
I'm using a Mowton Melton style standing crust.
* 450g flour
* 150g lard
* 50ml milk
* 50ml water
* ( salt and pepper )
Salt and pepper the flour.
Melt the lard gently with the milk and water in a saucepan.
Add the hot lard/liquid directly to the flour and combine well.
Knead, and save ⅓ for the top.
Roll out between two sheets of greaseproof paper, turning 90º between rolls.
Line a spring form tin and press in all around for a good seal.
Trying out Golden Bakery, Crumpet Toast, for breakfast this morning. https://amp.delicious.com.au/eat-out/article/tip-top-golden-crumpet-toast-back/9qr8vr6c
I can see why it was discontinued the first time around. As a crumpet, it makes decent toast. i.e. a crumpet it is not.
Sitting down requires a certain amount of smoothing so you don't end up sitting on a pile of crumpled fabric.
Also, sitting on pleats isn't quite as comfortable as jeans.
Car use requires keeping track of where your kilt is before closing the door.
Oddly though, going to the loo is a lot less fuss ;-)
So overall, there are benefits, and drawbacks like pretty much any garment, however, it's probably a better garment than tight jeans for male health.
Thoughts on Kilt wearing after a week in a kilt.
My jeans were causing a rash on my legs (at least I think it was the jeans, heat related maybe? dunno), anyway, to test this theory, I've been wearing my OzKilts cotton kilt this last week.
Luckily, this kilt has clip on pouches that function as pockets, so I wasn't completely pocketless.
It's definitely a bit breezy when you go outside, that is countered a bit if you wear kilt socks.
Otherwise, it's a pretty comfortable form of clothing.
Finishing with a caramel, pecan and date pizza.
Tasty but just not the same as in the wood fired oven.
I was going to fire up the pizza oven today (even made dough yesterday so it'd have a good slow ferment), but I've woken with a headache and that is not conducive to:
a) chopping wood
b) standing in front of the mouth of hell for 3+ hours
So it'll be inside-oven pizza instead. Not quite the same (and no, I'm not hacking my oven like French Alex).
