Words Plucked from a Rag-Bag Mind.
Good old Jim, he will have muscles like Popeye at the end of it!I do enjoy seeing the cat clan, I'd like to reach in and rub those furry tummies!
Boy, your house must smell divine. Love to see your cats. More, please. Deb
Keep up the good work! I was given 4 lbs of green tomatoes this week, so have turned them into chutney today 2 jars to go back to the donor and the rest for the store cupboard.In Sheffield, where Tam is, some citizens (young and hippy types) have been picking unwanted fruit, and from fruit trees growing "wild" and they redistribute it to nurseries, schools and old people's homes, which I think is a great idea.
I didn't know those peelers were still used....wonderful ...they say a Victorian kitchen to me.You could look up a chutney recipe ...Apple Onion and tomato(green or red)...easy and go well with cheese ...maybe its a british thing??? xx
When we lived in Minnesota we had an apple tree. No idea what kind. But the apples were good. As for the apples, they probably needed more sugar -- my answer to everything Brown sugar would sound good! Sorry, I'm a sugar freak.
Your baking does look good!Missing a much loved pet goes on for a long while, when you think you see them in their old familiar places, out of the corner of your eye. Mrs Beasley must have been a strong presence, as your "keyboard cat".
Back when I used to have an over-abundance of apples, I used to can sliced apples in quart jars with maple syrup added (don't remember how much). My mother loved these apples. She kept me busy canning up jars of apples for her.I know you must miss Mrs. Beasley. Lillianlillianscupboard.wordpress.com
What a fantastic post - domestic productivity and feline hedonism! I'm sure Mrs. Beasley was with you all in spirit.
Mmm, I can smell that apple bread from here :) All your baked goods look just perfect, like something out of a magazine.
