    I remember the year Mr SW grew courgettes. I just froze loads of them. I love them as a veg but couldn't be bothered with the small amounts used in cakes etc.

    As for home brewed wine - my father-in-law once made some awful stuff and chucked the lot. Some years later he found a bottle that had been overlooked. It was beautiful :lol:

    My late MIL was another who would brew anything that grew, sprouted or flowered. The nettle beer was horrid, as was her lettuce-and-pea-summat-or-other but her parsnip wine? It was so thick it was almost a sherry and gorgeous. It was also a knee-destroyer par excellence because, when you stood up after a snifter or two you fell down. I still don't understand why. :? DD
