    I am drying them at the moment – I am trying to build up enough to make some sweet chilli sauce – with capsicum to ‘cool’ it down a bit;)

    A few crabapples the other day, that I actually made around a cup full of Jam for my Dad for christmas 😀 (He gave me the tree!), and today was 3 good sized zuccini’s; a few blueberries; a blackberry that escaped the birds attentions! and a couple of green tomatoes (Black Russians, courtesy of Spanner!!!)

    Tassie Tiger, can I ask you how you prepare your garlic for storing please. Have seen your last huge harvest of Garlic on racks, but do you leave them out in the sun for a day before putting them inside?

    Cheers

    Lizzie

    All we do is remove the dirty outer paper skins on the bulbs of cloves, leave them on the rack or table for the tops to dry off. We don’t leave them outside. Once the tops are dry we either plait them as gifts or remove the tops. Long term storage is not a problem as we have six families involved in the crop and last year we sold a large quantity to a local resturant supplier. This year we are hoping to sell to the local grocery stores.

    It is interesting, I have just finsihed cleaning this year’s crop and looking at it in comparison to last year it does not look as good yet last year we were in drought and this year we got record rainfalls. Nature is a funny and wonderous thing:shrug:

    Picked and gathered these various berrys to have on my porridge although the cackle berries are better poached on toast;)
