And I am looking forward to a slice of Barmbrack and catching up with a few other Halloween Traditions from my youth………Not forgetting Faheys Orchard

The best laid plans……and knowing what is in the cupboard….I had intended to save the barmbrack and the soda bread for St Patrick’s day. Alas! I found myself opening the cupboard when brewing a cup of tea and reaching for the brack……needless to say I had to make another supermarket trip to buy some more. Oh for the humble Kimberley biscuit!

I am currently writing a piece that has brought back memories of times spent at my grandparents and when shopping at a local supermarket I spotted some barmbrack and fruit soda bread for sale. Needless to say they found their way into my basket and I am looking forward to having them on St Patricks day (if I can wait that long!)
