Tonight I decided to prepare the shallots for pickling on Sunday. I cut and peeled 80! I must be mad, but actually it was very therapeutic after a day in the office. So they are now sitting in the prepared brime ready for the pickling vinegar I need to make on Sunday, before putting them into jars. I should get 6 large jars out of them ready for Christmas! I was very lucky that I have a friend who works for Opies and he gave me 12 brand new jars. Oh and I need to make some nice labels in case I give a couple of jars away as presents.
