Been busy working my way through a list of things that need doing. This week I have started making Christmas cards, making mincemeat for mince pies and using the red apples foraged from the holiday to make crab apple jelly. It is a dark red but not as dark as it looks below:
Rather than buying what I think a food bank needs (they get inundated with pasta, rice and pasta sauces), I go online to see what my local one wants and buy those. Currently they are asking for tinned meat and fish, custard, biscuits and hair conditioner!
People are so disconnected from where their food comes from it is shocking. Two young men were recently asked what is causing climate change. They both said "Farming. We need to get rid of all farms everywhere". Doh! What exactly they think they will eat who knows:(
