26000 + Hits Give Away







When I first started out with my foray into the world of blogging it was very nervously I didn't have a clue about how to use the software or what my subject matter, would be ; but this has evolved with time and patience and through the help of very good friends.   I did not expect as many people to pop by and  visit who have done, or the regular support which has grown as a result.  Both of which I am very grateful and thankful for, but most of all for the friendship I have found along the way with people of like minds.The Internet if used properly is a wonderful vehicle and opens up so many opportunities.

As I have  now hit a bit of a milestone with 26,000 plus hits I thought I would offer up a giveaway.  I had a long hard think about this not really knowing what to offer, but being as preserving is something of a passion for me I thought that it ought to be connected to this in some way and hopefully inspire others with a similar passion. I have therefore located a preserving book with very different recipes in to the usual ones contained within many preserve books.  This one is entitled "The Glass Pantry" and is by Georgeanne Brennan ISBN No 0-8118-0393-7.  It has lovely clear photography and recipes, and I myself have had a copy of this book for sometime.  Some of the selection of recipes are as follows:

Green Almond Conserve

Wild Greens and Garlic Relish

Pickled Artichokes

Sweet and Sour radishes

Brined Grape leaves

Folie of Fall Fruits

Zante Grapes in Armagnac

Pomeganate vinegar
Candied Grapefruit peel

Spicy Lemon Oil etc etc etc

And loads more recipes showing different techniques, some of them are long term preserves some of them short term preserves and all are split into the seasons.

If you would like to join in this "Give away" please just drop me a comment on the bottom of this post whereupon I will put your name into a hat and draw the same on All Hallowes Eve (All Saints Night) or more commonly known as Halloween 31 October 2010.

Good luck everyone

Kind regards 

Pattypan

  3. All done.

    Am okay Sue feeling a lot better than I did but get very frustrated when not too well as have to pace myself because of lack of energy. I have good days and bad days but that is all par for the course - it is a condition or conditions and I don't intend to be hamstrung by them if I can help it - Nil Desperandum and all that.

  5. Hi Anne have popped you in too. Funnily enough I lost the counter right back in the beginning too but I think that was down to a problem on blogger rather than me pressing wrong buttons. Hope you and Edwin are okay and taking care. Remember you count too sweetheart. Take care the both of you. Hugs Tricia xx

  15. Please add my name!

    Have been following you for quite a while. I love reading about your preserving endeavours!

    I haven't quite got the pickling or jam urge yet, but I do have some sloe gin and blackberry and apple gin and vodka steeping nicely in the larder.

    I bought the River Cottage Preserving book from your recommendation and so I'm sure I'll get to trying some other things too.

  17. That sounds a very special book. You would have to be careful who you were with after eating the pickled artichokes though! Congratulations on having 26,000 visitors. Jennie xx
