Eight of us got together on Halloween and turned several kilos of apples and pears, locally harvested by Willesden Fruit Harvesters, into 29 jars of delicious chutney. We chopped the fruit and onions, measured the rest of the ingredients and then watched the mixture slowly form into a spicy, pungent mix. Everyone took home several jars of chutney and we also have some to sell at future Transition events. Most of the group had not attended a Transition workshop before and it was great to meet new people and share ideas. Thanks very much to Ashika who put together a wonderful mix of spices, bayleaves etc which were made into muslin bags and added to the mixture. We were also very lucky to have had the use of the kitchen at the Kings Community Hall, Harlesden Road, at a low cost which enabled the workshop to take place.

See pictures of the event here.

Thinking ahead to the future we would like to form a small group of people who would be interested in running preserving workshops/sessions. This would enable more people to become involved in what is a hugely enjoyable communal activity and more harvested fruit to be put to wonderful use!
