Time required:10 minutes. 1 – Fill a large pan with cold water and put it on the hob. 2 – Go into the garden and pick two ears of sweetcorn. 3 – Take off the outer casing, rinse and put the cobs into the water which will have just come to the boil. 4 – After 4 minutes remove and put onto the plate. Serve with butter. Because the sugars won’t have had time to turn to starch the corn will be amazingly sweet.
The idea of Slow Life is to take the principles of Slow Food, which are “good, clean and fair”, and extend them to life in general.
Here in the Lake District, the air is clean, the pace is slow and the atmosphere is calm. If we don’t grow food ourselves, we can buy it in friendly small shops, where you know the quality is going to be the best.
This blog is a celebration of the Slow Life, with forays into the world of design, music, the arts, gardens, and my particular weakness, Japan.
