Yes I know we are all about winemaking.. we also have a small cache of meadmakers and beermakers..

Would anyone have any objection to a small forum being opened for preserving here?

I don't want to dilute our forum unduly, however we do have a small space for foods that pair with wines and personal other non wine oriented forums already.. with our ever expanding member base.. ( and I will pointedly mention the expanding base of feminine memberships!)

Together with the current recession..I would be very happy to share my tried and true pickles, jams and chutney recipes etc. if there is any interest here?.

Those who don't want to read that forum can avoid it..as do those that are not interested in beermaking do now.

:p

you preserved 'Brians'?

( I'm having a huge "monty python" moment now....
promises not to include "brians" as a forum recipe option)

Thankyou Julie..i have a big interest in keeping costs down.. and currently a small jar of pickles at the supermarket costs $4 ( NZD), which is highway robbery!

Sounds good. I would have a special interest in preserving stuff for future use to make wine.

I'm interested! I starting making jam last summer and gave most of it away as xmas gifts. Allie, I'd love to see your "tried and true" recipes. :)

Well I kinda do it now. When I steam juice my fruit. If I am not making wine right away I will put the juice in Canning Jars.
Does that count?

Sounds good. Seems like a lot of winemakers are self-sufficient types. This stuff goes hand-in-hand.

Awesome!

thankyou all for the feedback.

I have added a new forum for preserves/canning.. under the 'other topics' area in the forums list.

Yep, it counts! Now that the forum is created, just post a step by step.

Holy Cow Allie,

I think we created a monster, you sure didn't waste any time in posting some recipes.

I love pickled anything. I pickle lots of salmon. And like Tom, I sucessfully pickled my liver too!

I don't care either way on a new forum, but why not just meld it into the food catagory?

We all love to eat as well as drink, I assume most of us like to cook as well, so I don't have any objections.

Thanks Allie. :try Some of the recipes you have up already sound like a nice way to spend a winter afternoon. Now I just have to get organized enough to make sure and gather the ingredients.
