The plan to become self-sufficient can have some unintended outcomes if we don't think properly about what we are doing. If we have a surplus, we get a table at a local makers' market so sell it and to promote what we are doing to encourage others to grow at least some of their own food.
Alas, we took all the piccalilli we made in August to our first makers' market last week and ended up selling it all. This was a mistake. We have made 7 jars and we should have held some back for ourselves. We have had great reports from those who bought a jar but we never had the chance to taste it ourselves. We will have to wait until next year to make some more!
I do have a video filmed about how to make picalilli. It's not edited yet. Things have been a bit busy recently. I'll try and get it sorted soon.
