    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...

        Chutney?!?!



        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:
        Piccalilli

        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
        salt

        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.

            Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

            For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.

            A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
