One of the principles of living simply is to make the most of whatever you happen to have. Sometimes doing this is jolly hard work, especially when you are holding down a full-time paid job as well.
The harvest from our garden recently has been excellent but that has meant that I have a responsibility to use and store it safely and not let things go to waste.
I have made cauliflower and bacon soup.
Juiced and frozen many litres of grapefruit and lemon juice.
Prepared grapefuit for The Duke for breakfast.
We have also been eating broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and snow peas as part of our dinner almost every night.
I was given about 30 apples at work the other day so those have now been stewed and frozen. I will use them in apple pies and crumbles. Here they are ready to go in the freezer.
I am struggling to find enough containers to freeze everything. I think I will need to get some more at some stage.
What do you do when you have a glut of a particular fruit or vegetable?
