Hi Steve,love the idea of jams pickles ,all of it but earlier this site got some good advise about garlic in oil as i wanted to do it also,sorry i cant remember who it was but apparently it can be very dangerous,its not the same as the garlic and oil we buy, one i did do went very wrong and was chucked,have a bit of a check for safety mate, but for the rest of it im getting all the info i can and still looking for a good jam pan,decided not to buy one of the new electric ones.and got all mi recipes ready to go.
Good luck Alan

Hi all many thanks for your help ,the link from Dove as usual was very helpful, the blue butts are almost identical to the ones we get from the farmers here ,as usual delivery price is high due to the size ,and i hope our water meter will be kind as in Falmouth we were paying believe it or not ??24:99 A WEEK true,, many thanks to you all .Alan4711

Hi all again and i need help with water butts ,were moving to Norfolk very soon new house big garden already full of wonderful plants,and the dreaded water meter,So has anyone in that area (Cromer,Mundesley ) found a supply of the big blue dairy farm disinfectant barrels we all use here in Tenby, most farmers are glad to get rid as they are non returnable and just perfect for butts (about 40 gollon ),just add a BnQ tap in the side or join them all up low down and tap the end one works a treat, anyone out there know where to get em please. Manyofem Alan4711
