Just Play Nicely Please.

 This post should have been put up a week ago, but I was delayed because my I pad would not play ball with blogger, its been happening more and more, I have now decided to go back to using my laptop but of course I then have to move photos off phone and I pad to laptop and none of them wanted to play nicely together. 

Then to top it off this week I had health issues not going into details but it made doing anything very difficult and uncomfortable.

enough of my health I am battling through it and getting or trying to get back to normal.

We got round to  having the two weather goats slaughtered, and got a great lot of meat, we don't normal keep them on to this age but its been a challenging year and time run away with us, but we needed to press on as we don't want to be housing and feeding animals over winter that we should no longer have

following on from the success of lamb bacon earlier in the year, I did a load of goat meat bacon 6lbs of it

it has been some the most tasty I have tried, short video above of it being cooked, hear that sizzle. There is a full video of the whole process over on my Youtube channel, link up on the top right corner. 

We are also making some Country Hams with two of the legs, video to follow soon, and I smoked the bones to make into stock.

I did manage to collect a load of Elderberries and turn them into a syrup.

and I was gifted a lovely lot of Rosehips


They have gone into the freezer until I have a spare moment to turn them into syrup.

I have been clearing bits of space in the freezer too, making room for goat meat.

all the packets of bacon bits got canned up.

along with some of the Buffalo meat.

I will be uploading a new Vlog tonight on YouTube I have to do it overnight as our connection is not the best, 

It would be great if you could subscribe to my channel as lots of stuff gets uploaded there that perhaps doesn't get mentioned here.


  1. Dawn - The bacon looks delicious! And it never occurred to me to use anything other than pork. Bacon has such a distinctive flavour, I wonder how it would translate to other meats?

  2. Yes, the bacon looks delicious, and all your canning as well. We used to buy beef bacon. It was excellent but very expensive. Hope you are feeling better. Do you still hear from Pam? Hope she is doing well, I miss her blog. Take care.
