Made by hand

Most of the time when you read a recipe now it will instruct you to “put in the mixer” or “use a handheld electric blender”. Sometimes this is a huge help, reducing a load of arm ache. Often, though, it’s pretty unnecessary. I just made a batch of muffins completely without electric aid and they’ve turned out fine. Plus they’re all the more satisfying having been made entirely by hand. As with making many things – theatre for example – the over use of technical aids can spoil the simplicity, and simple pleasure to be derived from, something being more hand made.
