Wow it has been a long couple of years, and when things finally settled down I went to look at my canning forum and it is now a one woman blog
But I found you all here!
We have moved a couple of times but have been on the mid north coast of NSW for 2 years now. Life was rather a nightmare the first year we were here, but now hubby has gone on 6 month oncology visists as his cancer is static. I think I can even start preserving again. well - maybe when the roads are open enough for me to get some new lids. In the mean time I am going to try and make some plum sauce. I will bottle in FV and then I can put in pouring bottles when I open the bottle.
hope all those who are north and west of here are staying dry and safe.
