How do we regard tinned fruit in this situation? Much traveled but at least the packing can be recycled
Oh yes, what about bottles of wine?
Here I am totally self sufficient in veg, partially self sufficient in fruit, but totally non self sufficient in wine.
I know the bottles are easily recycled, but a lot of the wine I buy is antipodean, Oz & NZ, and by no stretch of imagination can they be regarded as "local"
If I had to stick to local it would have to be Guinness. :iconbiggrin:

There's excellent local wine in Scotland. Not quite as local to you as to me - but try Cairn o'Mohr... :drunken:

Apparently Ina there are local vineyards here too, 3 in County Cork ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_wine
I think though I'll stick to wine made in warmer countries as I drink mainly red.

Elderberry? Bramble? Elderberry is almost like port... And one of the best I ever made was black currant.

I go with you Odsox! No one - despite their claims - can make a really good, soft, bulls blood red in a cool climate. Even in Oz we have people claiming they can do this at higher altitudes but the taste test proves them wrong; they usually taste "green" and unfinished.
We also brew Guinness here but its not my drop
