I had to go and look up choko and chayote :-) as they're unknown here.
I have been using my Lakeland breadmaker on the jam setting because we had a bumper crop of loganberries this year. Astonishingly, it works. So now I can put on weight by eating my own bread and jam ? all I need now is a cow and a clotted-cream program and I'm set.
However...one morning when I took out the overnight loaf, the spindle in the pan was seized solid and needed a pliers to turn it. The paddle slipped off undamaged but I have no idea why the spindle should seize when it was rotating freely the night before. Lakeland have been very sympathetic and are sending me a new pan, so in the meantime I have experimented and found that leaving the pan sit with oil in it for a day, then emptying it out and heating it in very hot water, and then putting it in the machine on the dough program and letting it run for half an hour freed up the spindle enough to bake a loaf. I'm tempted to assume that it was using the jam program caused it to...uh...jam, so I made more today and we'll see what happens.
