Attractive Handmade Decorations for the Home

Meet my new friend – sits quietly, no muck or mess and certainly no feeding!



It was whilst I was having a random moment, I thought I’d conjure up this little miss.  Pleased with the result, I thought I’d add her to my website, although I’m tempted to keep her….


Whilst being on the random setting this week, I thought I’d make some of this –





Piccalilli!  Probably a bit like Marmite – you either love it or hate it.  We only tend to have it at Christmas and whilst watching River Cottage last week, and seeing how easy it was, I thought I’d give it a go.


I used cucumber, radishes, cauliflower and french beans.  You have to soak them in salted water for 24 hrs, then boil the veg in sugar, distilled vinegar and ginger for 5 mins.  Add mustard powder, flour and cumin a little while later, you have your Piccalilli.


Extremely easy, but the downside is that we’ve got to wait 3 months for it to mature.  I think Christmas will be fine!


Still having empty shelves in my new ‘larder’ I made some very easy orange and ginger marmalade with regular oranges, sugar and crystallised ginger – scrummy.







Have a lovely weekend whatever you do!
