If you've been paying close attention you will know that I love a bit of foraging - not just in charity shops, but actual foraging of food, in the great outdoors.
I've just started another blog which I'd love for you to follow too. It's early days, but spring is a-coming so expect lots of lovely recipes over the coming months.
This week's finds were all forage related. I found this beautiful autumnal hinged biscuit tin, with a display of hedgerow fruits and berries.
I may use it to keep my recipes, magazine cuttings and note in.
Just a word of warning about cleaning old tins. I've been caught out before with over zealous cleaning of these in the past and ended up rubbing the design off. For these, Cilit Bang is not your friend. It required gentle rubbing with a soft sponge and washing up liquid. Keep the scourers away, and make sure you dry it immediately to prevent rusting.
I spotted this metal jam funnel for £1. No more burnt fingers from hot as hell jams and chutneys!!
And I got 5 metal baking trays for a snip which will be just right for open freezing berries and for making flapjacks with foraged nuts and traybakes.
I can't wait to get cracking!
What have you thrifted lately? I'd love you to link up your finds.
