While recupperating yesterday, I went Foraging!

I came back with Rose hips, and Sloes. That has meant that I have had to process some 3 years old Sloe Gin into 9 bottles, and prep the next batch. It greieved me to compost 4 lbs of old friut, but I had reclaimed the previous lot! BUT, I have 26 days of antibiotics to go to get over my slight bout of pnemonia. Then I might just party! horay for that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

The I had to put the hips into a sauce pan cover with water and boiled away on a very low heat for many hours. Then I poured the c***ents into a fine meshed sive over a funnel (tun dish) so that the contents went into an old Jam Jar! How's that for recycling.

In Ireland the lady of the house has just learnt how to pickle, and started with red cabbage! She rough shred it, sprinkled with salt for 12 - 24 hours, wash it off, place in jar and top up with malt vinegar! Do not pickle smallonions, as Shallots are a lot sweeter.

I might just try and pickle some grlic, as THAT is extremely Moorish
