Discoveries in the freezer
A good piece of advice: do an occasional check on the contents of the freezer. It's interesting what you find. I did a sort through yesterday and found bags of sloes, raspberries, rhubarb, gooseberries, lemon skins and apple. As a result, I've now made 14 jars of rhubarb, gooseberry and apple jam and 7 of raspberry and apple. Simmering away in my preserving pan at the moment are apple cores and peel, sloes and lemon. They are on their way to being sloe jelly. Meanwhile, the nettle flan I took out of the freezer will be used for dinner tomorrow evening. Tonight we are having bacon butties, to use up a bit more of our Tamworth pig.
