I've decided to try my hand at preserving. Given that we have access to seasonal fruit and vegetables during our farmgate trails and pretty soon we'll be producing our own crops (with luck!) I hate seeing things spoil. My Nan makes amazing marmalade, and my grandfather used to make the BEST pickled cucumbers.
I'm gazing over at my bunch of almost ripe peaches that we picked up at our local fruitmarket at the end of the street yesterday - about 2kg for $4.99. It would make great peach jam or preserves.. or schnapps? mmmmm Chilli jam would also be on the menu given that hubby's got about 16 plants growing at the moment!
So I've ordered 8x16oz preserve jars from Ezibuy. The ones with the rubber rims. I think that's what you're supposed to have. And I guess I'll be saving all my glass jars from herein.
It is a bit Nanna, but I'm loving the homey-ness of the whole thing.
