I have not managed much in the garden this week. It has been raining a lot....quite a lot....no, I guess it's an awful lot... Every Sunday morning I check my rainwater gauge and log the rainfall for the preceding week... It was actually raining, but only very lightly, when I checked it this morning and recorded 125mm (5inches) of rain since last Sunday...... Like I said a lot of rain.
"From Garden to Kitchen" really refers to me rather than any of my produce...although I did harvest the ends of a few things.
I also managed to sow a pot of batavia lettuce which I'm hoping to persuade to grow even though winter seems to be arriving early this year with temperatures already having dropped to 2C (35F) overnight.
I simply fill the slow cooker crock with as much of the mixed vegetables as I can manage, add some sugar and vinegar and then cook for about 12 hours. I find that the slow cooker allows the chutney to develop a beautiful ,rich, deep, colour. We have just a couple of jars of last years chutney left so by the time this batch is ready, in a month to six weeks, we'll have completely run out....
