Yerss

The twirling around the wooden spoon handles…

She made baskets using oiled oranges too

Gawds

All that work, & a box of 8 large ones is £1 these days

Aye, but they are nothing like, Dahlink. And I imagine your dear mama took great pride in producing said baskets, else she wouldn’t have done it at all. One has to cook for the family, and one might even be compelled by circumstance and expectation to make the odd cake (some very odd, in my case), but brandy-snap baskets? That is done out of a love of baking and the facination of what’s difficult, I reckon. And the work is fondly remembered.

I don’t know, Carinthia. One can hope…
