Have you created any posts on how to brine and pickle different plants? I make jams and chutney, but so far I haven't pickled anything apart from onions. Some great ideas for winter vitamins!Very true Denidoom but I also have little faith in vitamin supplements or the need for them when I can brine or pickle plenty of veg.
Carrots, cabbage, kale and beans all keep well. We also grow pumpkins and apples that keep well over winter and the 40' greenhouse keeps us ticking over.
I visit the coast to go fishing and at low tide I collect samphire in order to pickle it and seaweed fo make lavabread......These will help stave off vitamin deficiency over winter.
I usually just dry chillies and have a great method. I dry them in the fridge, just bung them in a plastic container without the lid on and they gradually dry. I find one good plant keeps me in chillies for nearly a year (for cooking). I just cut them off and pop them in the fridge when they reach the colour I want. The pickle method would be great for Jalapeno though. I need to try and grow them.We pickle Chillies.
Wouldnt mind the instructions for the rabbit curry NORTH, love a good curry.I regularly bag a few bunnies from the croft land around us here. Shetland is nearly crawling in rabbits so its very easy to pop out and shoot a few. We also keep chickens (hens and cocks), a few turkeys and also keep a small number of sheep in the garden.
I love rabbit curry done in the slow cooker, and our dogs love any excess meat and they get to eat the 'gibblets'
If you look on youtube most the yanks just keep them in cages bud, but i like you would like to give them some sort of life before they go in my belly.That would be a motivating factor in keeping rabbits for meat as I do have animals and in a SHTF scenario then there would likely be no pet shops so being able to feed my dog and cats would also be important. I actually looked to see what rabbits they had today in the pet shop lol, I would buy some from a breeder if I brought some but I am seriously mulling it over after watching that series. The only problem is that I do not have any grass, all my garden is turned over to veg beds. I hate mowing lawns so I have got rid of them al. I think you need an amount of pasture if you are going to do it cost effectively
To be honest, I usually cook a curry using sauce from a jar. I just pick what we have, using the one at the front of the stocks. The only thing I do any different is add extra water, about half a jars worth, and throw in the slow cooker with the rabbit meat and other required ingredients.Wouldnt mind the instructions for the rabbit curry NORTH, love a good curry.
