Dad making the initial hole with a bradawl.
Pip using the old DSLR whilst I am using the Pen-F
Cutting the strings.
Pip widening the holes.
Running a first test using pennies on one side and sugar on the other.
Calculating the weights.
1oz = 8 pennies and so 4oz = 32 pennies.
Weighing the oats
After we had weighed the oats we also measured the sugar. The oats and dried prunes were placed in a mixing bowl. And the honey, sugar and butter were placed in a saucepan and heated until melted. The wet ingredients were added to the dry and the mixture was baked in a moderate oven for twenty minutes.
Chopping the prunes.
The finished afternoon treat minus two pieces which were packaged and sent on to a neighbour who is recovering from knee surgery.
It has been a very tiring week with all the extra college travelling and so I am grateful when the weekend rolls around!
