  • Quark & Buttermilk

    Makes 700 to 800 grams of Quark.

    Quark is similar to French fromage frais and the queso fresco made in the Iberian Peninsula and in some Latin American countries, but is distinct from Italian ricotta because ricotta (Italian "recooked") is made from scalded whey. Quark is somewhat similar to yogurt cheeses such as the South Asian chak(k)a, the Arabic labneh, and the Central Asian suzma or kashk, but while these products are obtained by straining yogurt (milk fermented with thermophile bacteria), quark is made from soured milk fermented with mesophile bacteria.

    We hope you enjoy this unusual, but very practical, method of making 'Quark in a Bottle'. Continue reading

  • Apple & Fig Chutney

    Makes approx. 3 x 250 ml jars

    Ingredients:

    • 500 g of fresh figs, chopped
    • 2 apples
    • 1 1/4 cup (150g) of sugar
    • 1 / 2 cup cider vinegar
    • 1 / 2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp cardamom
    • Salt and pepper to taste

    Equipment:

    • Glass Jars
    • New Twist Top Lids
    • Large Pot
    • Jar Lifter (recommended)
    • Lid Lifter (recommended)

    Directions:

    1. Prepare your 250ml jars and new lids by sterilizing them in boiling water for ten minutes.
    2. In a heavy based pot combine your figs, apples, sugar, vinegar, spices and salt.
    3. Bring this mixture to the boil and then reduce heat. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring often to ensure it does not burn. This should take about 30 minutes.
    4. Place your chutney into your hot, sterilized 250 ml jars, leaving a one and a half centimetre headspace. Clean the rims of the jar, to ensure you get a good clean seal and cap with your sterilized lids.
    5. Process your filled jars in a boiling water bath for five minutes. For more information on boiling water bath preserving, please see our website: Boiling Water Bath Preserving

    Enjoy!
