Pizza on the barbie…good stuff! Get the charcoal fired up. Place the dough (homemade, of course) directly on the grate. Just a few minutes. Don’t burn it. Flip and add toppings. Cheese then sauce. A few more minutes.
Making our own bacon…here’s a video about how we cure and smoke our own bacon. The taste is far superior to “store-bought”. Watch for our classes starting in Spring 2021: “Simply Self-Sufficiency: Raising & Growing Your Own Food.”
Homemade wine. Made from our own grown, fresh, organic fruit. No sulfites. We have made a lot of loquat wine, so recently thought we would try blueberries.
It takes about 3 weeks for the sugar to get gobbled up by the yeast. We were shooting for a very dry but full-bodied wine. Cabernet. So far so good. It’s 3 weeks old, and we’ll let it age another 6 weeks…maybe.
Jeremiah was a bullfrog,
was a good friend of mine.
I never understood a single word he said,
but I helped him drink his wine.
(And he always had some mighty fine wine.)
