    Frozen Mango recipes

    Yummo. I’ve been freezing mango checks. Making smoothies and whizzing the mango into purée and making ice blocks with them and also been dehydrating a heap. So much nicer than shop bought ones.

    Preserving immature garlic

    Great idea Helen! Mine also tends to rot instead of cure here in the subtropics (not all) but dehydrating or pickling would be the go - I'll have to try it. :)

    I wish that was the case... Our GC is growing really well at the moment too - it seems to have established well after years of slow growth.

    Fermenting Green Tomatoes in Glass Jar

    I didn't end up doing it either - the tomatoes did ripen! They still needed cooking as they weren't as fresh looking as the bunches of delicious red ripe ones :) But I'm glad they didn't go to waste

    Activated nuts anyone?

    Never heard of them either but it is interesting! Soaking in brine and then dehydrating would probably make them taste quite nice I'd imagine.
