Ride provider marks 25 years By ELIZABETH NOLAN D R I F T W O O D S TA F F

Salt Spring’s Fall Fair experience is hugely focused on the rides for the younger set, but few people realize that the inflatable and mechanized equipment has been brought to the island by one family for the past quarter-century. Terry Hand and his Karscot Distributors/Fun Zone company are based in Nanaimo. He and his wife started the venture in 1993 after deciding to bring an inflatable bouncy castle home

from England, at a time when such outfits were little known in North America. Hand learned about the Salt Spring Fall Fair from a previous operator of the fun swing, but was reluctant to make the trip at first because he’d never been to the island. “We came over and we really enjoyed it,” Hand said. Hand and his wife have now made the trip 25 consecutive times as of this fall, and it has become a highlight of their season. Terry Hand at his fun swing station on Sunday.

ORANGE CHOCOLATE BALLS

Prize Winning

INGREDIENTS FOR ORANGE GANACHE: Two oranges 100 g milk chocolate

2018

METHOD

Sponsored by:

Owners, Andrew & Tracy Little

FOR HOMEMADE DARK CHOCOLATE: 2.5 Tbsp. cacao butter 3.5 Tbsp. raw cacao powder 1 Tbsp. raw honey ¼ tsp. vanilla extract

FOR THE GANACHE: Zest the two oranges, stopping before you get to the bitter white part, then juice the oranges and place the juice and zest into a saucepan. Let it boil for around 5-10 minutes to concentrate the juice. Pour through a sieve, pushing some of it through with the back of a spoon if you want a more bitter, strong taste. Pour 2-3 tablespoons of the hot concentrated juice over the chocolate and stir until smooth (microwave for 10 seconds if the chocolate is not completely melted). Place that in a container in the freezer until firm, or overnight.

FOR THE CHOCOLATE: Melt the cacao butter over a double boiler until it reaches 50°C. Add the cacao powder, honey, and vanilla and mix until fully combined. Wait until the mixture reaches 50°C, and put in a bowl or container for dipping, adding more honey if you want a sweeter chocolate. ASSEMBLY: Take your ganache out of the freezer, roll it into balls and dip in your melted dark chocolate. Place balls in fridge until chocolate hardens. Once ready, take the chocolates out and serve, or sprinkle with gold lustre dust for presentation. Makes approximately 5 chocolates.

“We have moms coming with their children on our rides who were once themselves children wanting to go jump in our bouncy castles. The Salt Spring Fall Fair is always the last event on our event schedule and it is one we always look forward to as we love the island and its people, and the fair always has the best atmosphere of all the events we go to,” Hand said. Their family members have also gotten involved. Their granddaughter Kaidence, now 14, has been helping out since she was nine years old and was on shift with them last weekend. “Both my wife and I turn 70 this year and I don’t know if we will be at the 123rd fair in 2019. I would like to hope so!” Hand said.

INGREDIENTS 400 ml water Packet of instant yeast 650 g all-purpose flour, divided

50 g sugar 5 g salt 90 g unsalted butter, divided

METHOD In a bowl, combine 100 ml of warm (110°F) water with one packet of instant yeast and 325 g of the all-purpose flour along with 50 g of sugar, 5 g of salt, and 45 g of unsalted butter at room temperature. Stir to combine before adding 300 ml of water and stirring to create a pancake batter like paste, and then add the remaining 325 g of flour and stir until a shaggy dough forms. Turn out onto a counter top and knead for 7-9 minutes until a smooth, supple dough forms. Generously oil a large bowl and place the dough inside. Roll the dough around a little to make sure it’s evenly coated in oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room

temperature for 45 minutes to an hour until the dough has doubled in size. Turn out onto a lightly floured countertop and punch down until it’s back to its original size and then start forming into a loaf. Make sure to tuck it under itself to make sure it gets that nice loaf top. Place in a loaf pan that is coated with butter and parchment paper and loosely cover with plastic wrap. Let sit at room temperature for one hour until it has doubled in size. Brush the loaf down with butter and place in a 400° oven for 25-35 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush it down again with some more butter and let sit overnight.

Be Water Wise

Use Only What You Need Water is a precious resource and supplies on Salt Spring are much more limited than in other parts of BC. Please join islanders as we work together to ensure that this summer, and every summer, we use this limited resource wisely. Try these conservation tips: • Keep showers short. • Run only full loads in dishwashers and washing machines. • Shut off the tap while brushing teeth, shaving, and washing. • Flush less often. • Inform guests about our island’s limited water supply, and ask them to be part of the solution.

Together we can make a difference
