Hello @Annette 

 

Those look delish! Please put my Christmas order in for 1 bottle of plum sauce!

Re: Preserving your excess garden produce

Hi All,

I have just started harvesting my climbing beans. 1.5kg in 3 days.

There will be too many to eat as they grow very quick once they start to mature.

I will blanch them and put in zip lock bags, enough for meals, then freeze them and use as required.

Excess tomatoes are generally made into relish.

Chillies are hung on string lines and when dried minced to make flakes which then can be used throughout the year.

I also freeze chillies and can the use them all through the year.

Any other excess is given away to family and friends.

I have seen where some houses have put a table or box at the front of their property and is used to trade excess produce.

It works on the principle of swapping your excess veggies for the other persons excess.

My daughter does this and it doesn't take too long for the surrounding neighbourhood to catch on.

👍🍻

 

Be happy and care for your tools

Re: Preserving your excess garden produce

I am also an avid preserver, saucer, and dehydrator. My Nanna passed on her CWA calendar cook books to me, and I quite often use the recipes from it.

I also have a thermomix, which helps to make small batches. I cook my large sauce batches on our wood fire. 

could I please get your celery and tomato powder recipes.
