After a few days of heavy rain we have had a lovely day today, the sun was shining when I got up this morning - just the ticket to motivate me. And get some of that pesky washing dried!
So I've been a busy little Bee.
Our lovely neighbours have a Kiwifruit orchard, so at this time of year we are given loads of Kiwifruit. The girls love them but we can only get through so many. I usually try chutney or jam, as well as giving some fruit away but I found a recipe for Kiwifruit sorbet the other day that I just had to try.
Easy to make too, just a few photos from the process.
I made our favourite Lemon Cordial (recipe from NZ Gardener - can't find it online but you may be able to search for it) - really yummy.
We've made a few things with some that we cracked already, Sweet and Spicy nuts and Macadamia Cookies.
And I also made some Witch Hazel Toner. My skin is a bit funny at the moment - I think it's from being stuck inside so much.... I hunted out a few of my natural remedies books and a good toner for skin prone to oily patches was made from Witch Hazel, water and Lavender. Mix together, store in a dark place and dab on cotton wool before using with the cleanse and tone routine.
Bye for now - Kylie x
