I'm in the central Victorian goldfields (near Wedderburn).
On 100 lovely acres (unfortunatly, some of it covered with Pattersons curse, boy do I curse Patterson as I chip out the plants) We have a stand alone solar power system.
I am very interested in cooking and growing things, also doing lots of crafts.
I have been cooking today, loads of Quinces, so I have been making quince paste. Next will be the Granny Smith apples, stew some, freeze some, eat some fresh.
I was delighted to find the website with so many people wanting (and sharing) their ideas etc about preserving, after reading about cheesemaking I think I will have a try.
