The Final Countdown
Last night for dinner we had some of the venison chops with sweet potato and oca mash
I found a recipe on the web for doing venison chops with mushroom sauce, it was very tasty and we will be having it again, I did have a big box of mushrooms for £1 from the fruit and veg wholesaler
This what is left of them after we have 4 meals from the box.
I will knock up a batch of mushroom soup and the rest will probably go into the dehydrator.
Now remember this Clotted Cream bargain I got 1kg for £1
we used some of it with scones and jam at the week end
I have been making truffles with what is left, a very simple recipe 100g of chocolate with 70% solids melt and mix in 225g of clotted cream, leave in the fridge to go cool, roll into balls
I then rolled some in cocoa powder, some in chocolate bits and some in chopped pecans,
Tomorrow I will make up another batch, the recipe says they can be frozen so I will pop the in the freezer until Christmas, I was going to do some fudge with some of the cream but I have another recipe for fudge I will do. These will make up nice little gifts.
Leigh was asking about making clotted cream at home yes you can details HERE
We have had a day without rain today and the ground is drying up but not for long we have more coming, I am just finishing up the last of the craft orders, my order book is now closed.
I have my last craft fair to do this Saturday, then I have a few finishing bits to do on Christmas gifts.
Then that is me done, next on the Calendar is Turkeys, only a few weeks to go.
Out of our chickens hatching this year an abysmal 4, 3 are Cockerels they are destined for the table and 1 hen, she has just started laying just in time I thought I would have to buy eggs, the hens we bought in are just about to come in lay, the ducks have just stopped laying.
Its defiantly wind down time now, the end of year is in sight.
