Help with identifying!

Hi all, I am doing a foraging project as part of my Culinary Arts degree, and I am having a bit of a struggle figuring out what is edible and what isn't. I thought I would throw a few pictures by you guys in the hopes that you could help me to figure out what they are. I'm in New Zealand in the Sout...

Apricot glut!

Hello everybody! I recently acquired nearly 6kg of apricots, and I have no clue what to make with them. I have done chutney, muffins and a pie so far. I can't make any more jams or anything as I have run out of jars to put them into. I'm open to any ideas :)

Re: Shopping for pleasure?????

I may be the odd one out, but I LOVE shopping :D I shop for clothes, for kitchenware, for wool and knitting needles, I shop in op shops, in Kmart, and anywhere else that looks like it might have stuff I like. I am only 20 though, so that may have something to do with it :lol: I really love getting s...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

Grr, more weight put on, though in this case I think its muscle as my calves and thighs are starting to firm up. Still, annoying >.<

Re: Weight loss group 2012

GRRRRRR >.< I am so annoyed!!! I put a couple of kgs on at Christmas time, and just went away for the past 2 weeks with my family on holiday. That = copious alcohol and crappy food. I should have moderated how much I had! I was down to 80kg but now I think I'm closer to 85 :( But on the plus side, I...

Re: weight loss group

Woohoo! I seem to have relost the weight that I recently put on. The stress of exams possibly has something to do with it :study: So I'm down to 84.5kgs, meaning that since I properly started trying to lose weight I have lost 4.5kg. This pleases me :D I've recently decided that I want to join the po...

Re: Fruit Tea Bag Wine

Since my liver isn't allowed the alcohol for another couple of months should I just leave it in the new DJ in a cool place til I can have it? Or should I let it ferment for another month or so? Would it harm the wine to leave it on the sediment for another month? I could just let it keep fermenting ...
