So, my trapping crabs, has come to an abrupt halt. I have become used to crime free Bavaria. I forget that there are criminals in the U.K.
Some thieving bastard, made off with my pot! No it was not washed away. It was tied and rocked at both ends. The rock that I had tied it to had moved 2 meters. Bahhhhh!
When I set the trap, all was good. It was cold, windy and wet. This means less people. When I returned, there was no trap and lots of people.
I did visit a farm shop on route, nicely hidden. I have tried the black pudding, very nice. That said the best black pudding comes from, Bury or Bolton. The lamb in the surrounding fields looked nice. Alas vac packing will not do it justice. I already have a shoulder of lamb in the fridge; it has already been well hung. That is for Easter Sunday.
We picked some Sea Beet and Watercress, both very nice. Tonight’s dinner was: fresh Pollock finished with parsley and lemon butter. This was accompanied by potato, pea, sea beet and wild watercress. Quality ingredients. The fish was from a fishmonger and a day boat. Day boat fish is the best, unless you catch it your self. More of that in another post.
