Since I am leaving the cookshop and cafe at the end of March, I determined to get as many kitchen things as my staff discount will allow before I go. There arent really very many things in the kitchen line that I need but I have been looking with an eye to the future and will probably buy a preserving pan for making lots of jam from the fruit I hope to grow.
The coolest gadget I bought so far is actually of a Victorian design (that hasnt changed one bit since it was first invented). Its my apple peeler corer thingy.
Its so cool, you end up with apples that look like this
I could play with it endlessly... and since I have an apple tree in the garden and one that overhangs my garden from a neighbour I should have loads of apples come autumn time.
Here I am, wishing the whole of the summer away when spring has only just sprung.... but that's me... so impatient!
