Re: Jam inspiration needed.

how about using veg instead of fruit? sort of like a sweeter, less savoury chutney? i'm sure corgettes or carrots could be used to make something nice and sweet, as when roasted, they tend to really release their sugars....mmmm...

Re: Co owners/adventurers needed

thanks for that SG, but that looks more like a communal thing, we're just looking for co owners of the plot of land and buildings, nothing as political or high minded as that :wink:
