Well it seems to have been sometime since I last wrote a post about
what I am up too
Before the rain came today I was out in the garden picking my veg.
First a photo of the greenhouse with tomatoes
A box of picked veg
NOW what to do with all those beans
The same as I did yesterday make Bean Chutney
so here if you are interested is the recipe
1 kilo Green beans
4 shallots ( I use onions - say 2 whole onions)
1 clove garlic (if you dont like it leave it out)
1 teaspoon root ginger
675 grams dark brown sugar ( or use what you have)
1 tablespoon tumeric
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard ( I use English as I have that in the store cupboard)
1.5 tablespoon Cornflour
850 ml Vinager
Cook beans and onions / shallots together till tender
Drain - Course chop
Add back to pan beans, garlic, ginger, sugar 700 ml vinegar
Boil for 15 mins
Mix rest of vinegar with tumeric, mustard, cornflour
Pour mix into beans
Stir and boil for 15 mins
Cool and then put in jars.
this makes around 5 1lb jars of chutney and lasts ages. In fact it gets better with age.
So if you have too many beans it is a good way to use them up. I tried to sell bags of
beans at the Village Hall coffee morning this week but no one wanted them. Their loss my gain.
I have had so many beans I am over run with them.
And Marrows too. But those will be used next to make Marrow Jam.
Anyway I hope you are having a good day and I will be back again soon.
Busy with needlework, sewing and card making.
I have just found a new needlework hobby Redwork - I am finding it so
relaxing to do in the evenings or watching TV.
Hope to show you something soon.
So always busy
