  • The Vine Preserver's Year 2012

    This is just a simple thread for Grapes to note what they have preserved and when - with volumes.

    No chat, no recipes - just a quick note to let other people know what they have done.

    This week, I have made:

    Wine from home grown frozen raspberries from last summer [1 gallon]
    Chilli Jelly from last year's chillis, dried and reconstituted in hot water [5 x 330cl bottles and one 120cl bottle]

    Is this purely from homegrown? How about wild-gatherings? Nowt so far apart from marmelade! (please delete if it shouldn't be here)

            I dug out the last remaining bags of blackberries and elderberries from the freezer last night and made jelly with them this afternoon.

            I got 3 1/2lb jars and a wee bit left over in a ramekin that i'll use for quality control when it cools
