Re: Wild Garlic

Because I can store more of it than I can pesto. Then I can use it in lots of different ways too.

I'm slightly worried about the economy so I bought the dehydrator so that I can stash loads of fruit and veg and dehydrated fruit/veg takes up very little space.

Re: Wild Garlic

My dehydrator arrived yesterday. I'm going to dehydrate a load and put in a jar.

Re: what to do with dried chickpeas and puy lentils?

Erm, I didnt boil mine before putting them in the slow cooker and they are fine. Really soft and these are quite old too.

Re: what to do with dried chickpeas and puy lentils?

You can put them in the slow cooker pot to soak overnight, then switch on and leave to cook for a few hours.

Chickpea and potato curry is nice and cheap.

My husband works for Rolls Royce and only gets half an hour. Some days he is there from 7.15 to 6pm (he is a manager so sometimes has to work late) He works in the office as opposed to the shop floor.

Wholemeal pitta, houmous and cucumber Tortilla spread with refried beans and grated cheese, rolled up. I cut mine into pinwheels for the kids. Houmous and pitta strips to dip in it. Pasta salad, just cook extra pasta and mix with roasted veg and balsamic vinegar or add any salad ingredients you have.
