  • Raspberries my favourite as well Snoop hopefully I'll have enough to freeze again this year to keep me going through winter.

    • Morning, it started bright and sunny, but the dark clouds are rolling in from the west and it's gone very muggy, most of the rain will have been dropped on the hills, so I will probably be out watering again later. Picked most of the radishes and also the blackcurrants, still no tomatoes ready just yet, I think that cold snap put them back a week or more.
      If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

              • Snoop -I notice you 'roast' your chicken in a pressure cooker?

                Have you tried BBQing them?
                We have a BBQ with a lid and sometimes pop in a whole chicken or other 'roast' off the heat. They taste even better when cooked with wood rather than charcoal.
                It was just a thought as I know it can become impossibly hot in the kitchen with the oven on during the summer.

                  Just be grateful, think how fast it will be going for the likes of Snoop, burnie and Nicos

                            It's a good question. I've been pondering on a BBQ for years. Couldn't have a wood or charcoal one in summer, though, due to forestry regs. So it would have to be gas, and that rather defeats the point. I have to say, though, the pressure cooker isn't bad. Brown the chicken all over, sweat a mirepoix of veg if you can be bothered, bung in a cup of stock, juice, water, whatever, put the chicken in on top (or on trivet if no mirepoix) and bring up to pressure, cook for however long you need depending on weight and then leave pressure to drop naturally. Probably all done in 40 mins from start to finish, half hour if it's a small chicken, and no worry that it might not be cooked. Always really succulent and juicy, though the skin isn't crispy, but that's no loss to me as I never eat the skin on chicken anyway for some reason - I just don't like it, though I know most people would think me mad for saying that.

                            Anyway, plus, plus, getting all excited here: the garage is going to include a place for a woodburning range, electric oven and a sink. Brilliant. I think Mr Snoop agreed this because a) he can't imagine life without bread; and b) this garage is costing an arm and a leg so there had better be something in it for me!

                              Rary, we would have loved to listen to one of our elders the other day, meaning you giving your reading, but it was indeed difficult in our case to do so because you didn't tell us where to go on Facebook.
