Re: Home Preserves

At its most basic, spas, it's lemons and rock salt. You can add bay leaves chillies etc to the jars if you wish. Haven't seen Anabel's recipe. How does she do it?

Re: Home Preserves

Olivia, red current jelly was in our cookbook! It's very easy, lasts ages in the fridge and tastes better than bought.

Re: Home Preserves

I haven't seen red currants for years. Where do you get them, TWR?

Re: Home Preserves

I'm also hoping to make Kasundi in the next week or so. Depends on how the tomatoes are. Might cheat and use tinned but will probably wait.

Edited to add "cheat recipe" using tinned tomatoes.

Sorry, I must have misunderstood. I thought you were talking about preserved lemons. My mistake smile.

Re: Home Preserves

Thank TWR - that really was a "duh" moment  lol  I need to find some redcurrants to make into jelly, which seems to be oddly difficult, but I'm sure that it would be a huge improvement on the store bought stuff.  We only get through about 4 jars a year (it's only ever eaten with roast lamb, but No. 2 Daughter loves it), but if I make extra, I could always give it away as Christmas presents.  Maybe a couple of batches, one with some port in?

Hi mummz big_smile

Not sure at all that i will have time to do very much this year wink Apart from the ususal Blackberry jam.

Friends make us pickled onions every year which are very welcome.
http://www.pioneerthinking.com/cooking/ … nions.html



Blackberry jam:
- 3 kg of ripe fruits for 2kg crystal sugar with pectin
- 1 lemon

-Wash the blackberries, then drain.
-Put them in a large pan with a glass and a half of water.
-As soon as they begin to boil, remove from heat and pass the fruit through a seive.
-When all the fruit is through, weigh the obtained juice.
-Put the juice into the bowl with the sugar crystal (count 1 kg of sugar per 900 g of juice)...Less sugar can be also used, depending on taste...800g per 900g juice.
-Stir to dilute the sugar before resuming cooking.

Allow 5 minutes from the beginning of the boil, and stir constantly.
Just before the end, add the lemon juice and remove the foam.

Pour into jars previously sterilized close immediately and place them face down on a tray until cooled.

we have everything,this is great btw,love this recipe... big_smile

Re: Home Preserves

I get them from a specialist green grocer. They are available at Christmas time here. They are rather delicate which is probably why they are not broadly stocked. Maree maybe try emiles in balmain.

I used to see them around February at the large (now gone) fruit and veg market at Miranda. Haven't seen them in Newie (but then I haven't really looked for them either) ... love Balmain and surrounds.
