The last couple of days in my kitchen......

Postby craftdancer » Tue Nov 18, 2014 7:30 pm

.....have produced Caramelized Onion Chutney, Green Tomato Chutney and Green Tomato Marmalade (providing it sets!).

I still have fruit in the freezer from last year, but I'm not quite sure exactly what and need to check; and a friend has just offered me a couple of bags of frozen gooseberries, so I'll be investigating the recipe books again very soon.

how many jars do you sell in a year


At the moment, very few. That is simply because I only got the provisional kitchen certification in June and now the necessary minor improvements have finally been done I am awaiting the inspector's visit to confirm everything. I did have permission to start making on the provisional certificate because it's low risk food, but I didn't dare book any fairs until I knew whether I'd have any stock. I was also working from June to the end of September, so my time was at a premium for sourcing ingredients and getting the cooking and labelling done.

I have managed to book into a village event this coming Sunday, but there are two other stalls there with preserves, so I think the competition will be very noticeable. I don't know this village, but it is very small so unless they get lots of visitors to this event footfall will be low. However, it's getting me a toe into the "craft" fair circuit so I may get contacts for some events next year when I will have a decent amount of stock - otherwise, it's a day out meeting people :)

The joy of chutneys and pickles is that there is a very long shelf life, so anything left at the end of this year will be fine for next year.
