Green tomatoes – Preserving group day!

Well done, and many thanks, to all our wonderful preservers who did amazing work last Friday making green tomato chutney to go in to our veg share boxes during the 2015 hungry gap!

No food whatsoever is wasted at The Oak Tree! Green tomatoes make a lovely chutney, so this is a wonderful way to keep our supply of food up throughout the year as we only put vegetables grown on the farm into our veg share boxes, we don’t buy veg in when the supply gets slower in the hungry gap.

Our preserving queen Christine was mistress of ceremonies:
