Change of Plans

Its been a different kind of year. I feel as though I have slacked end off. I did not pick wild blackberries, plums or apricots, actually i did not make any jam at all. Truth is we still have heaps of jars still to eat. I always found I gave away more than I kept, which is fine but.

Its arly may and I have just planed my brocoli- usually i would have had it in for months. I have moved a few veggie beds around and am trying to raise some Meat chickens
5

They have grown 5 times this size in about as many weeks, I have bough them food, but also supplement with protein from wild deer or rabbits. Its called protein swapping! and will taste like chicken. If I get myself a smoker I would like to raise some chickens for this purpose as well. Smoked chicken is great, like ham really.

My change of plans came about when i made heaps of sausage mince. I intended for it to be put into skins, my mincer is not really suitable and it became a task that was going to drive me nuts before i finished. So it came about that I made quite a few kilo’s. I froze it all in bags. I took some of it back up tot he farm where I butcher and they made them into sausage rolls- They were fantastic. Thus I came home and did the same. I did what i normally do, get food ready, freeze it individually then once frozen, bag them up and keep in the freezer. these are simple to pull out and bang into the oven and Boom, hot Delicious sausage rolls that i know I made from complete scratch.
