Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

Started cooking from last night, I made a batch of Cranberry Jelly - well rather the breadmaker did. I used fresh cranberries, orange juice and peel, orange liqueur, minced ginger, vanilla essence, sugar, salt and some pectin.

I checked it this morning and it has set perfectly. I was amazed how simple it was to make. It has the right balance, not too sweet, not too tart.

Still in planning mode, the last thing I need is some good rustic bread so it's stale enough for the stuffing when I make it on Monday.

Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

Finally got a chance to come on and see what's been happening.  Have had a hectic few weeks, with the childrens school comittments, mine school stuff, and all of the post Christmas.  But it feels as if everything is well in hand now.  Shopping is done, presents all wrapped, got the ironing done, and everywhere is looking very festive.  Just need to do some last minute cleaning tomorrow, and then some food prep for Christmas Eve.  It's nice to feel on top of things.

Merry Christmas everyone  big_smile

Buon Natale a tutti big_smile
just a little rest after sending the nipotina and her family on the hills for a few days, my other daughter invited them to let me prepare all the food for the big gathering on Xmas day for lunch
............ that day I'll have my older granddaughter to help me in the kitchen even if only for keeping the atmosfera frizzante and allegra

Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

I've got a duck cooking in the slow cooker for tomorrow's Sunday Roast - Duck was on offer in a local supermarket and I hadn't managed to find any Goose Fat for the big day so this was a logical thing to do. I cook it all night on low and it literally cooks in it's own fat. I find this is the best way to get all of the fat out of a Duck and the result is pretty close to confit.

Sitting on the grass, under shade, drying off from my swim

Not so crazy hot here today but still warm enough to make swimming an option.
