One pot supper

With fuel prices rising and winter days still with us. One pot suppers are an important way of cooking hot wholesome meals for less use of fuel. I’m not joining in with giving up meat for January either though I am eating less because that makes for cheaper meals and when I do eat meat […]

Experimental upcycling of pickle vinegar

I’ve often been reluctant to tip away the remaining vinegar after removing onions from their pickled mix. I’ve also thought it wasteful to throw the picked red vinegar from beetroot. Then I decided to reuse. Well this might be something that others have done, but I’ve not. Some shop bought picked vegetables are not in […]

New toy – Slow Cooker

My life is taking a small positive change, and I thought it a good idea to finally purchase a new slow cooker. I’ve had one before but it stopped working and was disposed of about 2 years ago. I kept the inside bowl because that would come in handy as an oven or serving dish […]

Forget the add-ons

Strawberries ! Forget the stalks, I’m a real fan of food that has been trimmed. I love the use of proper plates and bowls. These strawberries were picked from our garden today.

Fresh bread

I always make my sourdough bread the morning before I bake it. I mixed the dough, saving some of my starter for future use. After mixing and kneading I leave in the bowl to prove all day. At 7pm ish I reshape, decide and place on trays and place in the oven. I leave it […]

Bagged up tip for freezer

Now before you ask why an eco warrior is using plastic freezer bags. I will reuse them and finally they will become poop bags for the dogs. Place the bag into a vessel, I used a measuring jug but you could use anything that fitted the bags you have. Spoon in whatever you are wanting […]
