Prepping Part #2 Foraging

Foraging for food

Over the last few weeks we have been foraging for food with friends and neighbours on road sides and down tracks and lanes.
Picking sweet plums and apples.
Most of what we picked was made into pies, cakes and slices and shared over a cuppa with friends, good conversations and lots of laughs.
The rest were made into oh so sweet jams.

This recipe is approved by Ball as a safe canning recipe.

Yellow Plum and Vanilla Jam

1.8 kg Plums pitted
1 1/2 cups Water
1/4 Lemon Juice
6 cups Sugar
1 Vanilla Bean Pod

Star Pickets

How to remove a star picket

I think of star pickets as temporary fencing, the reason being is they are so useful for soo many things its crazy to use them for anything permanent and at between $4 and $6 each they are way to expensive not to be a reusable item.

Out Door Loo

Dunny, Thunder Box, Shitter, Crapper, Bog, Out House, Shit house what ever you like to call it, it all means the same.
From using a bucket in the paddock to something with 3 and a bit walls, its the ultimate luxury in the Aussie Bush.
