Somewhere in me lurks an Earth Mother. I think she is probably a rather smug creature who wonders why everyone doesn’t live a sustainable, green lifestyle. However, I let out her out to create my presents this Christmas. She has been pickling and baking the last week or so; sterilizing jars and making labels. Yes, handwriting them. (I did mention she was rather smug!)
But you have to hand it to her, she makes a very nice chutney and pickle! Sorry — I can only give you the proof in photos, not in a taste test.
And here is a glimpse behind the scenes….even Earth Mothers make messes!
Who knows, I may be able to persuade her to do a guest appearance on the blog, getting her to write down the recipes. 🙂
