Intrigued by “A Crafty Christmas” the title of the talk at their December meeting, members of Scotton and District WI found themselves being treated to a highly entertaining – and informative - talk about bread making by guest speaker Linda Hewitt. In her own very individual way Linda demonstrated her simple – and successful – method of making bread by hand which doubles as a form of keep fit.

As well as making Stollen, a tasty and spicy Christmas loaf (one ingredient being her own home-made candied lemon peel) Linda used a basic dough mixture to make a variety of Christmassy items = differently shaped and decorated buns and little loaves as well as candle holders, tree hangings, garlands, a Christmas ring or wreath (for eating or for hanging on a door).

There were samples aplenty to taste and in the raffle which added yet more to the enjoyment from Linda and her “Crafty Christmas”
