    I'm glad you qualified the 'chicken egg' thing, Bamboo. Telling Aussies to use 'large' eggs might see them hunting down the nearest emu for some eggs! :p

    Frozen Mango recipes

    Yummo. I’ve been freezing mango checks. Making smoothies and whizzing the mango into purée and making ice blocks with them and also been dehydrating a heap. So much nicer than shop bought ones.

    Preserving immature garlic

    Great idea Helen! Mine also tends to rot instead of cure here in the subtropics (not all) but dehydrating or pickling would be the go - I'll have to try it. :)

    Activated nuts anyone?

    Never heard of them either but it is interesting! Soaking in brine and then dehydrating would probably make them taste quite nice I'd imagine.
