Harvest Hunkering

Our New Life in the Country is busily freezing, bottling and preserving food for the winter and has a challenge of eating for free for as long as she can. It's a worthy challenge which will save money in the long run. I've found that in the summer months we live off home grown veg. and fruit rather than buying it in. I thought I'd call the preserving, freezing and bottling of this bounty  -

Harvest Hunkering,

saving our excess to use up in the winter months as opposed to buying in produce. I am joining in this challenge and for myself I shall endeavour to use up the harvest in the freezer though out the cooler seasons.

Hey that's more organisation for my Filofax - now I need a shopping section and a freezer section in order for my Harvest Hunkering to work smoothly. :}


PS 12 more plum crumbles have been cooked and frozen along with 2 bags of plums for the making of jam. Now I'm off to cut up those prolific courgettes and bag them for the freezer.

Happy Hunkering!

PPS Now what can I do with grapes? I've tried freezing them whole but I didn't eat all of them.


  1. I really love grape jelly : )

    I want another freezer. I've got far more to put in the freezer than I have space available.

  2. I've been doing a bit of Harvest Hunkering myself with the damsons: chutney, gin and jam. I'm going to start stewing apples next and stocking the freezer with a few crumbles xx

  3. A couple of years ago I made some grape jelly. Delicious on toast.


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
