We were wondering what u preserved from your garden? Whether its just pickled beetroot, tomato and chilli chutney, apple sauce, and the traditional hedgerow jam? We are looking for new ideas, recipes, tips and hints.......
I'm quite new to preserving, so I haven't had a chance to try many different things, but so far we've got a few firm favourites that disappear way too quickly.
Apple jam with vanilla and calvados
Marinated garlic cloves
I also use my dehydrator a lot to make fruit leathers, dried fruit and moonblush tomatoes, and I love making (and eating) fermented cabbage. :)
We have apple and pear trees. Not sure what sort, Parents planted them a few years ago while I was away... Someone once said he hadn't seen such large pears before!
What do you people do in protecting the fruit from the birds. Organic ways preferred ;)
A good all round chutney recipe that I made the other year was Glutney Chutney from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall...
It was really good as it pretty much threw in all the stuff I had left over that perhaps I wouldnt have used otherwise.
I think 2 years later and it tastes even better than before!!!!
