~ Pack Away Your Cured Goods Well ~
Look at all that hard work sealed away until it's needed.
This time of year my vacuum sealer is my best friend. It takes my precious cured goods & tucks them up neatly, making sure that they don't lose any freshness & allowing me to portion them in whatever serving size I wish. The Italian made SICO range of vacuum sealers are generally regarded as the best home use machine money can buy, and they don't disappoint. So if you're interested in starting to vacuum seal or wanting to upgrade from your current machine, come in and see us or browse our online store. We also carry a huge range of vacuum bags in all shapes and sizes, ready for whatever you have to pack away.
~ Ferment This, Pickle That ~
Spring time means that plants start to blossom, grown & bear their edible goodies. During this time of plenty we will often have a good problem...too much produce! The best way to keep those goodies from going into the compost is to preserve them. We have a comprehensive range of preserving jars at Home Make It to do just that. Big, small, tall or round, we have the jar right for your job.
These wonderful preserving jars from Mortier Pilon have just arrived into store just in time for spring, are well designed and are a very versatile piece of kitchen kit. From pickling, sauerkraut & even kombucha, the perfectly simple airlock system on this range of jars keeps any baddies out while letting gas escape.
