Been Productive

We have been making lots in the last week
 Cucumber Relish
3 telegraph cucumbers
1 Spanish onion
1 red chilli
1 tablespoon of salt
Cut up all ingredients and mix all together leave to sit for 2 hrs then drain.
Then in a pot mix together 
300gm brown sugar
500ml apple cider vinegar
2 tbs of mustard seed
1teaspoon of turmeric
Bring to boil, then simmer until a thick syrup
Add the cucumber mix and bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer until jam like.

I normally double the recipe and I get 3 jars.

Mulberry jelly
no exact recipe for these
pick as many mulberry's as you can 
then take of stalks and rinse then put in a pot and fill till level with mulberry's
bring to boil then simmer for 1 hr
drain mulberry's though cheesecloth then tip the liquid back into the pot
for every cup of liquid add one cup of sugar then bring to boil cook on med high until its reduced.
I cheated I was worried that it wouldn't set so i added two jam setters the end result is a very firm and yummy jelly

Stars inspired by here
 and lastly Vegemite scrolls made with a normal bread mix too easy.
