The Put Down 2012

Well we are only second week into the New Year and already I have been playing with a find of 2kg of limes for £2.  As per last year I include a list of those items I manage to get put by for this New Year.  I am afraid it is looking a bit naked at the moment but no doubt it will soon fill up once I get cracking!

This year on the preserving front things haven't quite happened How I have wanted to hence the reason for popping this up again.  I hope to get busy again in the next few weeks and thought that having this to hand might prompt me to get a wriggle on, and hopefully I will be able to take advantage of what comes my way in the coming weeks.

I have also been experimenting with home made pie fillings as well; I had a go at some strawberry pie filling/puree the other day and it seems to have come out fine so far but the proof of the pudding will be in the eating as they say.  In this format you can add the puree to some rhubarb and end up with a strawberry and rhubarb crumble or pie or you can use on pancakes with some cream or in a Victoria sponge cake with fresh cream you are only bound by your own imagination.  I am going to have a go with some other fruits as well to see whether the recipe I have come up with is foolproof or just one of my failed experiments.  It looks pretty in the jar though and would also be lovely served with plain yogurt in the morning.

                      2. Wow - You are spurring us on to get things done!

                        It's really exciting - we're aiming to join you for the ride (& try our best to keep up)!

                        Unfortunately, we don't have a pantry - instead we have an old wardrobe & shelves in our spare bedroom & for strange reason we call it the shop... We intend to fill it with our own preserves, etc this year, but might just need the odd kick up the backside now & again!

                        So anyway, better get on - we've got our marmalade to do!
