Old Ways

When I am cooking something for ritual or my ancestors I make sure I use the old way of cooking.

This means translating the measurements from imperial back into metric, which I was taught to cook with by my Mum. Kitchen scales in Britain usually have both imperial and metric measuring systems, as we started the change over into metric a few decades ago and many recipes have both systems of measurement.

It also means using less gadgets. I rub butter into flour by hand, instead of using a food processor to do it for me.
