About this time last year we made one of our regular trips to the Bushy Park Market (love this place!).
We bought a small packet of Jerusalem artichokes to enjoy as part of dinner that night.
“I’ll just plant a couple of those small ones. ” said Robert, helping himself to a few crowns.
Well they have grown into humungous plants and are now ready for harvesting. These trayfuls came from just two of them this morning. Fantastic!
I wonder is there any way to preserve them – pickled perhaps?
Meanwhile, back in the laundry, the apple cider is bubbling away. We woke this morning to a very pleasant and promising apple-ferment aroma all through the house.
There’s a bit of a race going on with these ferments – Robert has used different cider yeasts by way of performance comparison. These two kegs in the corner are the odds-on favourites for being first to the finish post of bottling.
There should be some good cider sampling to be done here before too much longer.
