Maggie,

What do you use this chutney on?  I'm thinking pork chops?

It pairs nicely with Chicken  or Swordfish also

I have even used it to make a sauce for Roast Beef sandwiches 

I mix it with some mayonnaise. YUM

Apple Pie Filling

 

Picked our apples yesterday before the critters got to them.

This morning I started canning some pie filling

I have 6 quarts and 1 pint in the canner as I am typing this.

 

I stumbled on to  the recipe  several years ago from Susan at "Imstillworkin"

The title of her YouTube episode is Canning Apple Pie Filling

 

The written recipe can be found at National Center for Home Preservation

Anybody got a good bread and butter pickle recipe?

 I never bothered making pickles before, but my wife has been buying those "Vlasic Farmers Garden" bread and butter pickles, and I am swimming in cucumbers.

Maggie13, the few posts I've read since returning to the forum happened to be yours, I have to say I'm impressed.  We have a lot of benefits living down south, but I always kind of envied you folks up north who can garden all summer and have access to all that  fruit such as apples in the fall.

I guess its a trade off, we get to garden all winter.

Check out http://www.herbco.com

This is where I get all my spices from. They have a pickling spice mix, or you can make you own.

The prices will amaze you.

G'day Guys, this is our Tasmanian homemade bread an butter pickles that have proved to b popular at the markets.

Ingredients:  5 Large Lebanese cucumbers thinly sliced,  2 small brown onions , halved and thinly sliced, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 cups of apple cider vinegar, 1 cup caster sugar, 2 tsp yellow mustard seeds, 2 tsp coriander seeds, large pinch turmeric.

Instructions:

1.  Place cucumber, onion and salt in a bowl, toss to combine, cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge overnight to soften.

2. Next morning place vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, coriander seeds and turmeric in saucepan and cook and cook on medium until sugar dissolves.  

3. Hand squeeze cucumber mix to extract most of the brine water and add to the pot and bring to simmer and simmer for 5 mins.

4. Transfer contents of pot in to sterilized glass jars, lid (heat lids on stove 5 mins in boiling water) & Invert for 2 minutes and set aside.

5. Allow a day to allow flavour to develop.

Makes approximately 6x 250 ml jars.

 

Goes great on cheese platters, sandwiches or in salads.....adjust ingredients according to how much you wish to make.

Thanks for that link! I'd like to get some herbals for medicinal teas, and my daughter will probably go nuts wanting to make her own blends.
