Guess what I been up to this weekend? But now I over this preserving kick for a while. I made another batch of Mrs Ball's (med)chutney with the raisins. Queen Peaches are still in season here and at $2.99kg it's so worth making. Then a batch of plums jam but I did not have enough plums $3.99 kg, so added a few slithers of peach to it. It looks good with few lighter bits of peach. Just hope it going to gel ok. I just waiting for the peach jam to cook then bottle it.
There's a new veggie shop out our way called Fred's, it actually been around for ages in a small cramped premise. Recently they moved to a nice new premise, with a deli section, fish shop and a butchery. All in one shopping with plenty parking. What a pleasure to shop there. That's where we went to first thing this morning, then to the produce store for more chook food. Then home to start cooking.
Green beans and carrots had to be peeled and cut up and packed into small ziplock bags for the freezer, just enough for a meal. Still got a 5kg bag of onions left after dehydrating a heap of them. And while I managed to get 2 small buckets of mushrooms, I thought I might just try dehydrating them too. Success to both those two vegetables. Unfortunately the pears were a disaster in the dehydrator,but the sheep loved them.
Friday I popped into our local Salvos (Goodwill store) and found 3 large glass jars with lids for cheap, just had to get them. Great for storing pasta, lima beans and extra rice. That was a good buy.
Well the weekend is over again and tomorrow is work so here's to another week may it soon be over! lol
see ya and have a great week
