ready to crumble – rosinenbrötchen:
Get ready for the weekend! Yesterday evening I put some flour, butter, milk, raisins, sugar, yeast, and vanilla in a pot and this morning the dough was ready to “Rosinenbrötchen”.
About 35 minutes at 160 C and 10 minutes at about 200 C with hot air (for the color) and
not only have saved you the time and money to queue in this morning at a bakery shop you also got the smell in the house. Have a nice weekend !
Italian navy/sailor pocket knife by Simav – Napoli: At a small antique shop in marrakech i found this great old sailor pocket knife. A copy of the famous WWI and WWII british navy/army knife made by Simav – Napoli around 1940. A small blade, a massive Marlinspike, a tin opener and a screwdriver all you need onboard. After a bit of a polish, some balistol oil and sharpening of the blade, it is ready to use.
It’s a fact that men like knifes and even some woman do. But most of us lack the skills to use them properly. The video above is with German comments but it should be easy to figure out what the technique is about.
Just by accident I found this old German Navy Sailor knife called “Bordmesser” in the drawer of my father in law. A well used vintage knife from 1964 by Hugo Köller Solingen. He told me he got the knife from a fisherman who killed the fish with the Marlinspike / Marlspieker. (the usual purpose is to fix ropes or to open knots).
