Today I am learning something new

I am going to make some Ginger beer with some help from Sherrie at "simple living"  I have started the Ginger beer plant and am looking forward to some old fashioned ginger beer does anyone know how to make Dandelion and Burdock?

I dried out the candied peel last night I put it by the woodburner.

All ready for Christmas  New Years pudding

I have started a sealed pot challenge that I wont open untill 3rd of December 2012


  1. Your candied peel looks yummy! Bet it tastes much nicer than commercially manufactured peel, too. What is a Sealed Pot Challenge? Good luck with your Gingerbeer :) We made it years ago and woke up in the middle of the night to what sounded like crackers going off. It was our bottled Gingerbeer exploding.

  2. Oh, dumb me! I clicked on the link and have discovered what this challenge is all about. Sounds worthwhile!

  3. Desiree I hope we don't have ginger beer exploding.
    The candied peel is very tasty, much nicer than the store bought here.

  4. Ginger Beer sounds delicious...years ago I made beer...I liked it, the ex didn't! Your candied peel looks wonderful...can't wait to see the pudding. Now I'm off to find the link to the Sealed Pot Challenge!
