Veg shop. I have more cooking apples, apricots, a cauliflower, carrots, 6 lemons, 12 large satellite peaches, vine tomatoes (whoppers) that smell divine, some plums and a load of rhubarb. Two bunches of mint. Not as much this week but enough for me to deal with. I have the basics and a few more bits to go at. I was a bit later in the day than I usually am and most of the offers had gone. Probably better luck next week
Planned for this little haul is more bottled apple puree, dried apricots in the dehydrator, pasta sauce with the vine tomatoes, plum chutney and for the rhubarb, rhubarb cordial, rhubarb vodka and gin. possibly some other bits and bobs I saw some recipes this morning that need further investigation and the peaches are for eating. If there is any rhubarb left I will probably pop that in the freezer for puddings.
I have also picked up reduced raspberries from the Coop, large peaches, some strawberries, some frozen mixed summer fruit which I intend to make some cordial out of, carrots, sweetheart cabbage a green vegetable medley, frozen peas. I have also bought milk and a pot of live natural yogurt as a starter base for a new batch of home made yogurt. The water kefir, milk kefir, Sourdough Starter and Kombucha will also be seen to later on.
So quite a nice selection really to get stuck into and that's without anything else I have stockpiled to deal with.
I also need to get some onions to make some onion marmalade. I am also starting to look at chutney recipes
And we have a small piece of roast pork for tea tonight to have in sandwiches and home made apple sauce. So things can't be too bad.
I also need to nip out and get some potatoes - they did not have any sacks at the veg shop but the local Polish shop has some small sacks that will get me out of bother for now. It will be end of September for the bigger sacks now.
Right had better get a wriggle on.
Catch you soon.
