This week it has been all about preserving the harvests that are coming in from the veg garden, orchard and local hedgerows at Eco-Gites of Lenault. So in answer to the question Annie, from Mammasaurs, asks us each week, "How Does Your Garden Grow?" I can answer, "Very well thank you!"
|Produce from the veg garden and orchard at Eco-Gites of Lenault|
|Early Worcesters and windfall apples|
|Orange and green peppers with aubergines|
|The largest tomato of the year!|
|Braised red cabbage|
|Oven roasted cherry tomatoes|
I have also frozen broccoli, beans and courgettes. This blog details the best way to freeze beans. I have also made:
- Ratatouille - recipe here for how I make ratatouille
- Raspberry jam
- Passata - my recipe for passata
- Rhubarb cordial - with frozen rhubarb to free up freezer space
- Ready made meals - courgette and tomato quiche, broccoli cheese, courgette bake, courgette soup, courgette fritters.
Phew!! It's been a busy and productive week and I still have more to process.
Are you getting lots of produce and have you any recipe ideas for yet more courgettes that I have!
