I had heard about passivating - a treatment for stainless steel. It is what we originally thought our oven doors needed - but they didn't, they needed powder coating instead
But pickling? for stainless steel? It means removing a thin layer from surface, in order to get rid of impurities etc.
I haven't done any pickling this year.
But I have done some other preserving recently.
I made 6lbs of marmalade with a tin of MaMade this week.
I have prepared and frozen lots of apples - some plain, some pies, some crumbles- using fruit from friends' trees.
An unexpected glut of red and yellow peppers have been slow roasted and frozen too.
And I harvested the Cornerstones lavender, and dried the buds. They are in a jar for use in lavender bags etc.
It is very satisfying to have prepared food in the warm sunshine ready for the cooler autumn months!
Have you done any pickling or preserving recently?
