February

The Slowpoke: HOW TO STERILISE JARS With the end of summer comes a period full to the brim with preserving. As summer crops that have flowered and fruited throughout the warmer months offer up a final glut before the cool closes in, we get busy with preserves, jams, chutneys, sauces and the like.

CHARGRILLED CAPSICUM

February

The Slowpoke: ROASTED CAPSICUM They’re handy little morsels, perfect on pizzas, sandwiches, antipasto and burgers, with the list certainly not ending there. While you could pick up your roasted capsicum in a jar from the store, they’re stupidly simple to make. And with local sweet red capsicums in season, there’s no better time than now.

LEMON MYRTLE INSECT REPELLENT

January

The Slowpoke: INSECT REPELLENT There’s not many spots in this rather large country of ours that you can escape the menace of mosquitos. And this time of year is particularly rife with them. Before you reach for the commercial insect repellent though, consider a natural option. One that skips harmful ingredients – in particular DEET.
