Re: Grapes

It's Moroccan, I think. I can take or leave fresh pomegranates - the flavour to pain in the bum to eat ratio is way too low to bother with.
The highly concentrated flavours of the molasses are absolutely delicious though. I even put a splash in my gal's tofu bacon marinade.:lol:

Re: Growing Melons

Prying allowed. It gave me an opportunity to boast a little - I am quite chuffed about it. I'm sure your T1 diabetes is well controlled but for those less fortunate keto is having good results for them too - although with medical supervision to monitor insulin needs as requirements can change quite ...

The small ones produced 1.4 litres of juice which will be slowly reduced to a syrup for sweetening stewed fruit and making some dried apricot jam.
Sort of a grape molasses. I'd imagine it's really tasty, maybe a bit like pomegranate molasses - have you tried that?

Re: Growing Melons

You're being very pedantic, mister, and I may have to come round and sort you out. :lol: I've had weight problems most of my adult life and have yo-yo dieted for all of it. Although never diagnosed I'm fairly certain I was heading for T2 diebetes and probably a load of other health problems. This pa...

Even our new banknotes feel like plastic and have clear windows in!

Re: Growing Melons

I obviously can't press y twice. Or proof read.
Melons are too high carb - too much sugar. The only fruit I eat at the moment are fresh or frozen berries - blackcurrants, blueberries, raspberries etc.

When I'm sylph-like I'll indulge in melons and bananas ( I miss bananas very much).

Re: That other plastic problem

Aye, that'll be progress.
We have a small stack of cheque books - does anyone take cheques any more? I'm not entirely sure wht to do with them. Maybe in a few years I'll be able to sell them as antiques on Ebay.

Well we may just be joining you this year, with our hydropnic mini toms.

Thanks for the reminder, we probably need to get some going soon.

Re: Dried Beans

They look amazing - all from the same packet of seeds? The black one's look like turtle beans - my favourite.

Re: Busy day

The cheeses are progressing nicely. One was salted on the outside and left to air-dry. That's developed an almost rubbery texture - sort of gouda-esque texture. A teeny taste promises well. The other two were crumbled and salted then re-pressed. These are much softer. One has been "washed" with the ...
