Part 1 of 2 Post
Todays post is in two parts, the reason is I have been sewing all day so not getting anything done until the evening, I started this cooking this evening and will finish off tomorrow morning
First Off Blackberries
We dont need any more jam or jellies we have plenty in store so I wanted to make up a mix that could be used in pies or crumbles, wash the blackberries throw them in the pan with some home made brown sugar cooked until the juices were running then
I added 3 tablespoons then I added some
dehydrated peaches and a good spoonful of dried orange zest
peeled cored and chopped half a dozen apples and threw them in as well, brought it to the boil remove from heat then left for the peaches to soak up the lovely blackberry juice.
I will show you what happened to them next in tommorrows post.
Now the apple peel and cores I could feed them to the chickens but would rather use them for us
I am going to make some Apple Cider Vinegar, leave the peel and core on a plate to go brown.
will continue tomorrow.
I cooked myself up a treat for dinner
Double eggs and chips, real chips made from real potatoes, you know the ones you peel slice chop wash drain and pop into hot oil with lashings of vinegar and a sprinkling of salt, I was thinking of it all day, egg and chips yummy and home produced.
I had a little visitor at breakfast this morning
can you see him on the back of the chair
I happened to have the camera sitting beside me
I tried zooming in on the little robin but it hasnt come out very well
cooking continues tomorrow :-)
