Chutneys, Jams and Jellies

0
A month or so ago I wrote a series of posts about chutneys, jellies and jams, but I didn’t write anything about how they tasted (as I didn’t know), so here is a short post on how they all turned out. (more…)

Rosehip and Apple Jelly

0
This is the last in a series of posts about chutney’s, jams and jellies. Bella and I had a great time in September gathering rose-hips (except for the ants), and this year I decided to add some apple to the jelly (mostly because I had very few rose hips and some apples in my kitchen about to go [...]

Greengage and Tomato chutney

0
In my last post I wrote about making Blackberry and Apple Chutney, and in the post before I wrote about making Blackberry Jam with Bella all on the same day my parents were over. Well I also made some Greengage and Tomato chutney (recipe below). I froze the Greengages I gathered last month, and so [...]

Blackberry and Apple Chutney

In my last post I wrote about how Bella and I made Blackberry Jam. On the same day my parents were over, and they took Bella for a few hours whilst I made this (not a child friendly recipe as pretty complex); Blackberry and Apple Chutney! This is based on the contents of the River Cottage Preserves [...]

Easy Slow Cooker (Crock Pot) Blackberry Jam

2
In late September I did a little foraging with Bella, sadly nowhere near as much as I’d hoped to do, but at least this year we got many more blackberry’s, and there is always next year! The towering mountain of food in the image to the right is the massive bounty that Bella and I have reaped this [...]
A container of acorn coffee

Acorn Coffee (and edible acorns)

As mentioned the first thing we gathered the weekend before last was acorns, so I had a go at making acorn coffee last week! I also had a go at trying to make some of the acorns straight-edible (like nuts), which was a lot more work, and not very successful, but more about that in a bit. There are [...]

Windfall Chutney

I was going to make a chutney from some of the crab apples Bella and I gathered the weekend before last (we had lots left over after making the rose hip jelly), however when I discovered that I would have to peel and core all the apples (a big job seeing as they are so small and there would be lots [...]

Rosehip Jelly

2
The first thing we made after our gathering outing last weekend was rose hip Jelly. We followed a Times Newspaper recipe that came from an old WI recipe, although I had to change some of the quantities. The reason I changed the quantities was because I had struggled to collect 300g of rose hips [...]
Bella, me and a plate of bannock

Bannock!

Despite all my big plans for the year I have failed to do two planned weekends of outdoor activities with Bella (due to family duties, weather etc). Today I planned to go on our first foraging trip of the year, but with high winds and rain I  didn’t fancy dragging a two year old round the woods (I [...]
