Preserving - prepping for Winter

While there is a bounty of foodstuffs, it is an ideal time to preserve jams, fruit, onions, etc etc. A money saver in time, as prices increase ...
To ward off colds/flu, onions, garlic, peppers pickled or cooked then frozen are ideal for stews to get the best out them when you need them the most.



Pickling chilli, caps, garlic & onions this weekend. Red Cabbage is very nice also. It's easy to do, and nice to eat ones own preserves.

I have never done preserving. I love the thought of having them in the cupboard but think it is unlikely I will get around to it!



Totally agree Mellow. It's worth the effort to give it a go, you can add your own ingredients to recipes to suit your own tastes. A simple plum, strawberry or raspberry jam is a great place to dip your toes in as with Chelsea jam setting sugar it really couldn't be any easier, all you need is a large saucepan and some old jam jars. Candy thermometers are really cheap and make the process even easier if you don't use jam setting sugar. I have a cupboard full of jam, sauces and cordials as we have a dozen different plum trees, apples, cherries and a pretty good vege garden, it makes sense to use it up as best you can. We also freeze things like chopped onions, tomatoes, broccoli, beans and peas. It takes a little bit of time to figure out what you like and what works, I wouldn't recommend Haw and chocolate spicy sauce, epic fail, but it did lead me to make a delicious strawberry and chocolate jam so it's worth scanning for recipes and trying some out.



did some peaches

I love preserving peaches Too much work involved in making jam - and I am always afraid it will not set.



We made some quiche jam and have a million boynesberries and blackberries in the freezer for making jam/desserts/muffins in winter!



Preserving your herbs – pop into some ice cube trays, add water – freeze, use in your cooking straight from the tray. You can use glad bags too and just put a small amount of water in and break off what you need.

OnCheap Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Friday, Big Deutz - Bryant parted ways with the Dallas Cowboys. Even though Dez continued to reduce Global Jerseys Wholesale production as he ages in the past few years, the eight-year veteran who cut down on the "American team" still let fans debate and enter the free market, and people are guessing that Deze's next stop. Where will it be.New Products
Deez BryantWorld Cup 2018 is very dissatisfied with the practice of the Cowboys. He has been well-trained in the off-season and is only able to play better for the next season.Bundesliga Jerseys Originally they could cut off Detz earlier, but they did not, which made Deez passive in the free market. On Tuesday, Deze told reporters that he wouldShop All Products be happy to stay in the East area of ??the League of Nations. In this case, he would have the opportunity to play against the cowboy twice a Other Teamsyear. He hopes that his old club will achieve revenge. Deez also said that the New York Giants attracted him, especially their offensive team. "The Giants'Premier League offseason lineup is relatively intact and I think they will give OBJ a suitable offer, so Beckham will definitely stay here.
In addition to hisLa Liga offense, there are also Sterling Shepard, near-fielder Irwin Ingram, and Eli Manning. Heaven! This is crazy! "These were followed by Deez and added:" If they takeLigue 1 away Sarkwan Barkley of Penn State in the draft, the offensive team is just as beautiful. "The ideal is full, but the reality is very skinny. If the Giants use BucketNFL Jerseys 2 to pick Buckley, their offensive team would be enough even if they didn't have Deez. The reason for signing him may be that the team needs red zone offensive NHL Jerseysweapons." This is why Deez didn't mention Brandon Marshall when he talked about the Giants offensive team. Last season, Marshall only played for the Giants in fiveNBA Jerseys games and then went on a free-fighting game. If the Giants really signed Dees, then Marshall had a lot. It may become a victim.
In addition to the Giants, Dez NCAA JerseysBryant has a decent interest in several teams, including Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders and 49 San Francisco players. So what are the teams he does not Nike NFLwant to go? Green Bay Packers, Deez thinks the team "had too many stories with him." "Green Bay may not be able to deal with me." Deitz pointed out that in the 2015Nike NFL Jerseys postseason, the Cowboys and packers met in a narrow way. In the crucial moment of the fourth quarter, Deez Bryant made a new first pass by passing TonyAuthentic Jerseys Romo in the fourth gear to advance the ball to the yard 1 yard ahead of the packer.
At this time, Packer coach MikeWomen Jerseys McCarthy put forward a challenge. After the referee watched the video, he decided that the receiving ball was invalid, which made Deez very dissatisfied. If theYouth Jerseys ball is placed in the 2018 season, the penalty is definitely another result. Excluding Aaron Rogers's factors, Dez didn't like packers. For Dez Bryant, he does Shop By National Team not want to see the current situation, because he can get at least 12.5 million US dollars to stay in the cowboy, and into the free market will greatly reduce their own value. In recent years, Dez's data is not very beautiful. Coupled with age, the peak period has passed. It may be difficult for Deze's wish list to take place.
