Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
My name is Jane. Here are the adventures of a happy, Canadian, wife and mummy who loves to: cook, drink wine, redo our vintage Boler and blog at www.janesadventuresindinner.com . Glad you're along for the ride.
Canning your own spaghetti sauce
Lime Cordial: ginger and lime syrup perfect to make homemade Shandies or the best gingerale.
Avocado Salad Dressing: rich, quick and good on everything.
Jardiniere: canning pickled vegetables ready to give crunch to any snack or meal.
Blackcurrant and Gin Jam: tart and bursting with fruit. This jam will remind you of summer on the very coldest days.
Herby mix does double duty as a marinade and condiment on this super moist chicken.
Tea Smoked Trout: brined and smoked. So easy to do at home and super yummy.
Homemade Creme de Menthe: nostalgia overload but even better than the original memory. An easy, quick gift.
Key Lime and Ginger Marmalade: quick marmalade to make and perfect for gift giving.
Pickled Beets: nostalgia in a jar. Sunshiney, tangy and crisp.
