Episode 10 – Teaching and Craft

Welcome to episode 10 of the iMake podcast.  This episode includes a run down of my Christmas making, specifically my Christmas knitting projects.  I also talk about my journey into teaching, in particular, craft teaching.  Finally there are some new crafty websites to check out and a short introduction to the Guernsey ormer.  I hope you enjoy it.

So without further ado, here is the podcast: Episode 10 – Teaching and Craft

Ormer Casserole

As many ormers as possible
A strip or two of belly pork
2-3 carrots
2-3 shallots
Guernsey butter

  1. Soak ormers in cold fresh water for 30 minutes.
  2. Shell the ormers.
  3. Scrub off the black parts.
  4. Beat the centre of the ormer with a mallet.
  5. Flour the ormers and brown in a frying pan with the Guernsey butter and a little oil.
  6. Place the ormers in a casserole dish with the cubes of belly pork, sliced carrots, bay leaf and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Place in pre-heated oven at 160/170 °c for two hours.

Turn down the oven and allow the casserole to simmer until cooked.
