It’s been a busy time tidying and harvesting crops at the allotment recently. There have been plenty of beans, carrots, peas etc that have been prepared, bagged and frozen for future use – rapidly filling up the freezer and leaving us pondering and getting a small chest freezer to cope with the additional produce.
This all got me thinking about other ways of utilising and preserving the results of our labours on our plot. I found a variety of recipes but I also came across a very handy website which had some excellently simple recipes as well as a whole host of other information – www.Self-Sufficient.co.uk
It contains a wealth of information about growing specific crops, preserving, recipes etc plus it covers self sufficiency areas such as livestock, foraging, fruit, vegetables and general smallholding information.
It’s now my first port of call when I’m after a recipe or helpful advice on any area of self-sufficiency.
