Many years ago I made similar to these but used normal candles. I think your idea of LED lights is better / safer. Shame my kids have grown and I now live in a village of les Misérables who wouldn't appreciate this.
Sounds ab-So-Lutely Fab.Question. Why use fresh AND freeze dried strawbs? Does it make a difference to the texture or flavour?TIA.
Nope. He said 375 but didn't specify either F° or C°. If using F° the it's still extremely hot so your 175 (F°) is probably nearer the mark. :) I haven't tried this recipe yet - I'd not hear do f Beer Bread, it sounds interesting so I'm going to give it a go.Jannie in France
This sounds a smashing way to use those surplus veggies. Just wondering how long would it keep? Would it last several months so the family could enjoy it when they visit over the winter?
Would this freeze until later? Watermelons are cheap(ish) here at the mo but get dearer by the time the g/kids arrive in Aug and I'd like to try this on them.
Thank you. Now to stock up on the w/melons.
I also love liquid soap. I've never tried to make my own soap but I'd be interested to find out if this recipe can be amended to liquid. Then I'd give it a go.
I don't have a dehydrator but do have a poly tunnel that gets very hot. I dry cherries and other home grown fruits in there. If I can get hold of a watermelon I think I'll give it a go.
I'm afraid my French isn't good enough to question the vet about the Yea's and Nay's of anything. All I could really understand is "le beurre de cacahuète est interdit." (peanut butter is banned) and "le beurre d'arachide est mauvais pour vos chiens." (peanut butter is bad for your dogs).I had intended to ask one of my English speaking French friends to ask the vet why but it's one of the things that didn't get done.
Sounds good and nice and easy but -- my vet has always advised me not to give peanut butter to dogs. Thanks for the idea, though. I'm now going to look into making treats for my pair of hooligans
Thanks for getting back to me and for that info. My vet advises me not to use p/nut butter so I wont but I wouldn't say Yeah or Nay to other people giving it to their dogs. Might even use this I'ble for my own use, though.BTW I didn't say I thought it was well presented.Have a good evening.
Thanks. Going to try this at the w/end.
I'd love to make this but don't have any pumpkins this year. Do you think other squashes might work or would I have to go out and buy a pumpkin? I've not seen pumpkin puree here (in France)
Thanks for your prompt reply and helpful answer.I'd love to make my own puree but MOH took over the gardening this year and hasn't grown any.I've not seen pumpkin puree here - I live in a very rural area of central France and "weird" supplies are hard to come by. I might have to buy On Line this year and hope I'm well enough to go back to gardening (and growing my own pumpkins) next year.
got it now. Thank you. When I find time to make this I'll (hopefully) send you photo's.
I am allergic to foam so can I have your permission to adapt this?I can't find where to down-load the pattern. Am I missing something?
If you find it in France please give me a shout. I'm also in France and find it sadly lacking in many "exotic" foodstuffs that would be the norm in UK
I've got a wood burning fire with stove top. So, in the winter, I've got plenty of heat to proof my bread. I've also got a (bottled) gas stove with an electric light for summer cooking. Never thought to use the light for proofing. Must give it a try. Thanks for the tip.
going to have to try this - just as soon as I can get some decent bacon and cheddar (when MOH gets back from his UK trip). Are you sure it will actually last a couple of days? In my home I very much doubt it. LOL
Canning and Preserving Class
Are you sure the eggs were totally fresh? Stale eggs will pop/explode when heated (and they'll stink the house out)
Can you try somewhere like AMAZON?
Wouldn't hurt us humans, either.
I'd use the vinegar solution as a weed killer but I just wondered - we are on Fosse Septiques (septic tanks) here in rural France so would this solution harm the natural bacteria in them?
I've been out of the UK for several years so don't know if it's still available but Fairy used to do a Laundry Soap.
