Today: putting sauerkraut in jars, making chutney from persimmons, washing up dishes, drinking another coffee, making barley tea, there is a rabbit, also turmeric
Note: the rabbit (named Maru) is our guardian angel.
Just pulled some massive ginger from garden and some turmeric too / wiped me out so taking a bit of a break before prepping these Kaki / also scored some red (albeit mild) peppers and a mikan orange from tree
Re, harvesting: I just stuck a spade in the ground, pulled it out the whole plant, dropped a chunk back in the hole, shook off the dirt, cut off the stems and rinsed. Ditto with turmeric.
My wife and mother-in-law are great gardeners but I really don’t know what I’m doing, I just dig holes and make pickles with the results
Onwards! Choppa choppa, making sorta persimmon chutney, everything shown from garden
While in the kitchen, stashed some sauerkraut from the crock where it was weighed down by rocks for a week-ish into some jars… Over-salted it a little bit but well, I’m still a rookie we’ll see how it goes… [update: it’s alright]
Just closing the loop on the persimmon chutney project ~ four jars: one for fridge, one for parents, two for freezer
