Today was supposed to be sunny, and I spent the morning volunteering at our local markets watching the rain drizzle down... By afternoon it did seem to be clearing, but after I armed myself with mozzie spray and lit the mozzie coils the rain came down in earnest.
No worries mate! I am not going to let the rain get me down! I have had a couple of things up my sleeve that I have been wanting to try, ...
Firstly was the comfrey ointment, I had picked a few leaves and washed them and left them on the counter overnight to dry. I placed these into the crockpot with 300ml of oil.
Onto the next project - making pickled green ginger. It is mostly used with Japanese dishes. One of my followers Miyako might be able to help me with some recipes to use this up! I love looking at all her lovely Japanese dishes and flower arrangements, and her husband makes their soba noodles by hand!
then I chopped it and added it to a glass of cider vinegar and water. It was yummy - no bitterness at all.
