Eddy Champion

Eddy ChampionThe living spark that is ‘Eddy Champion’ is all ready for a new adventure. Since the Eddy Champion Comic first appeared where he told the story of his daring rescue of a snail caught in a drain pipe on a stormy night, Eddy has responded to the call of nature day and night from his secret under soil M.U.D. (Main Utility Department).

Never daunted by any cry for help from a fellow earth-creature, the World’s most exciting, fearless and legless worm is ever-ready to leap over newspaper racks faster than a frightened tortoise.

Eddy pushes the environmental concerns of millions into the public arena and from his Caster Cave deep below the turf, he champions environmental causes on behalf of all the little creatures that get neglected.

Pontiac or Pontack Sauce

IMAGENAMEHEREEach year, the Elder trees produce a rich harvest of Elderberries. I think that since we started scattering a handful into our recipe for Blackberry and Apple pie, usually eaten on ‘Nutcrack Night’ at the end of October, more friends seem to visit the HoBB for Hallowe’en.

One recipe, using Elder Berries, eluded me for ages despite setting up alerts, designing the jar label (above) and searching the internet. It was the recipe for ‘Pontiac or Pontack Sauce’. A sauce that improves, so I’ve read, if you mature it for 7 years.

Happily, I received the recipe in an email from Marlys Coffey and here it is. I hope you enjoy waiting the full seven years – I’m going to be tempted to sample it after six (days).

Recipe for Pontack or Pontiac Sauce
