    OK this isn't bragging but I was just practising/experimenting a little after finding a certain picture on one of the boards here.

    Who's going to be the first to tell me what it is ..

    Well, I'm flattered!

    Incidentally, they tasted even better than they looked .

    I daresay Carter will be along later, rejoicing that there's someone else here who's a talented jigsaw cutter.

      Don't know about the talented - the pic hides a multitude of minor things that went wrong .... and the shapes are pretty odd. Going to have another go at a puzzle later - just after I finished cutting those I got some puzzle blades I'd ordered from Mike at Flying Dutchman in the mail - want to see how much difference they make...

      They looked pretty good those sausages tho ..:-) As did your bacon curing ... couldn't find any chutney recipes though ...

      I'll post a completed version of it later .. if I manage to get it back together...

        Ee bah gum... tha can take the Tyke out of Yorkshire but tha'll ne'er take Yorkshire out of the Tyke .

        I love chutney! I've only recently made a batch of piccalilli. It's not sharp and the vegetables aren't crisp like in most other piccalillis. Moreover, the recipe's ever so simple:

        1 marrow
        2 lb onions
        2 pints malt vinegar
        2 oz dry mustard
        ½ oz turmeric
        3 tbps plain flour
        1 cauliflower
        1 lb sugar

        Cut vegetables up into small pieces. Layer in a bowl covering each layer with salt and leave overnight. Drain well. Bring the vinegar to a boil, stirring in the sugar until dissolved. Add the vegetables and boil for 10 minutes. Mix the mustard, turmeric and flour to a paste with some water and add it to the vegetable mixture. Simmer until thick and pour into sterilized jars.

        This works wonderfully with smoked streaky bacon.

        If you need more recipes, PM me your email address and I'll send you some.

            Saw tuneups
            by Rolf
            I tend to be a bit scattered when it comes to projects, I get bored and move to something else mid stream. It seems to be getting worse with age,

            Any way I decided to tune up both of my saws, the EX 16 and my Hawk G4-26. I thought I had the EX perfectly square to the table until I cut...

            Great news. I know from personal experience getting the vaccine has been a great uplift to me. It gives a new hope that the worst is truly behind us. In the US we did not have a choice in most cases. You got whatever you got. My wife and I both had the Pfizer one and had minimal issues like: arm...

            Darkening oak
            by Jim McDonald
            Sometime back, there was some discussion about darkening oak. I have used the search and found something about fuming with ammonia, but I think there was another method using vinegar.
            I have a suspicion it may have been lost in the software change.
            Any guidance appreciated.
