    Found the recipe I was looking for

    Tea has been ribs and chips, with an experimental new BBQ sauce recipe involving mango chutney. Verdict: extremely nice

    Quick version of the recipe: finely chopped a medium onion, and fried it in a goodly amount of olive oil in a saucepan over a low heat for twenty-odd minutes. Towards the end of that time, chucked in a finely-chopped clove of garlic (a big one). Then added a couple of dessert spoonfuls of brown sugar, two or three of cider vinegar, one or two of Dijon mustard, and three or four or maybe five of mango chutney. Good-sized dash or two of Worcester, naturally. Splash of water. Simmered for a while as the ribs, which had been cooking under foil for about three hours at gas mark 2, came up to gas mark 5. Poured the sauce over, and back in the oven (foil off) with occasional basting for about forty-five minutes, so it had reduced loads and caramelised all over the ribs. Sorted

    That’s enough for half a dozen decent-sized ribs making two portions, so scale as needed if making more.

      Ermm. I'm sure that you could buy your own Gaff, and half of Leicester? Plus, The Last Spitfire

            This evening we have been watching The Personal History of David Copperfield (2019) - IMDb - very entertaining stuff

                Mostly not. This is important junk!

                  I'd got twice as many ribs so it took loads longer for the sauce and what-have-you to reduce and bake on properly. But when it finally got there, they'd turned out inordinately well; wonderfully tender and flavoursome

                    Couldn't be bothered with much telly tonight; the factory programme about making pencils on Smithsonian, and some police shenanigans whilst dining.

                    The rain seems to be holding off for the moment but it looks like it'll be back later

                    Goodnight all

                      "Finding Alice" is entertaining. Keeley Hawes unrecognisable, since the last time I saw her on the telly was in "Spooks" (I think?).

                      Gurnard was good.
                      Frîtes were fine.
                      Wine is wonderful.
