So today was spent pretty much the same as yesterday, melting in the kitchen!
Sue sent me the recipe she used for plum sauce
1.8kg plums, de stoned and quartered
1 sml onion chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic chopped
Put all of this into a blender of food processor and blend until smooth.
Put into a large pot and add:
3 1/2 cups of sugar
2 cups of cider vinegar
1 tblspn ground ginger
1 tblspn mustard powder
1 tspn ground cinnamon
1 tspn red pepper flakes (I used chilli flakes)
1/2 tspn ground cloves
Bring to boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 90 minutes
Pour into sterilised bottles.
I made another batch of pepper relish
Had a sort out of the cupboard and ditched some really old stuff , a beetroot relish that no-one liked
In this cupboard is last years bread & butter pickles and bean relishes and what I did this week.
In another cupboard are some that are a few years old but still good
...and (l-r)marmalade, plum jam & strawberry jam
How cute is this?
So for dinner tonight I made a stir fry, a great way to use some of those veggies and it's quick, after a long day for the both of us, quick is good and it's tasty to boot
Peas, sugarsnaps and ONE chilli, trust me it's all you need!
Finely sliced veggies
Some left over beef
I used a mix of Peanut & Sesame oils and flavoured with Sweet chilli & soy sauce
I added some of these at the end
Chuck it all in the pan, stir it, add the noodles last minute
...and serve. Delish!
Because Joe had spent the best part of the day clearing and tidying the barn we had a drink up there this evening and played a couple of games of darts.
Joe beat me good and proper at around the clock 1-bullseye
But I beat him at 101 finishing on a double 3! Woohoo!
Enjoy you day or evening where ever you are
