Hello all you wine lovers I have comprised a Twitter list in my blog that I believe relates to the concept of organic food and wine making as extra resources to backup my blog. Included in the list are a mixture of other wineries and organic garden growing ideas. So not only can you get good ideas from my blog, but also gain inspiration from similar blogs and websites by following them on Twitter through my Twitter list provided at the bottom of this post.
In my list I have included my favourite down to earth chef; Jamie Oliver listed as a definite person to follow. He is very inspirational to me. He has a love of home-grown fruits and vegetables, cooking at home, family lifestyle and is not afraid to get creative and messy in the kitchen. Oliver is all about olive oil and flavour. One of my favourite recipes of his is his stone oven cooked pizza.
Jamie is also is very knowledgeable about preserving his vegetables. This is very useful when you have a vegetable garden or fruit trees of any kind, because there may come a point where you have too many chillies and capsicums in your garden you won’t know what to do with them all. I can give you information on how to preserve and pickle your veggies and this is a great way to be able to have your organic products all year round. I mean, what happens if you feel like apple pie is summer? Granny Smiths only grow in the Autumn months. However, say you had preserved them last winter and you have them in jars at the back of your cupboard. HEY PRESTO all of a sudden you can cook up a delicious home made apple pie whenever you want, everyday even.
