Bulk Food Ordering – Share and Save

bulk food ordering

A new bulk food ordering website – SAS – has launched. This on-line Grocery Wholesaler deals in food, non-food, health and hygiene products and soft drinks. They sell direct to the general public in packs of 6. Prices offered are at discounts of up to 50% off either price marked products or RRP. SAS stands for Share and Save, encouraging customers to work with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to save money together.

In these changing times of supply issues and food shortages, it’s good to know of many different places and ways to shop such as bulk food ordering.

Apple Chutney with Ginger and Garlic

apple chutney with ginger and garlic

This apple chutney was inspired by a recipe from The Cranks Recipe Book, but we changed it a bit to our liking! It’s great for using up windfall apples in the autumn. The combination of flavours here make for a delectable chutney, completely delicious, and better than any you could buy.

Sometimes old railway lines have apple trees with fruit for the taking due to people throwing their apple cores out the train windows in the past. Parks and other public grounds often have the trees too. Look out for them in your area!

Apple Chutney Ingredients

These quantities fill about 3 medium jars. We doubled up and made 6 this year!

  • 750 ml. cider vinegar
  • 675g. molasses cane sugar (or any very dark sugar)
  • 3 bay leaves (make little tears in them)
  • 1 kg. cooking apples, peeled and chopped
  • 100g onions, chopped quite finely
  • 100g of raisins or sultanas
  • 100g of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or crushed
  • a little seasalt

Method

apple chutney - apples on the tree!

Slowly dissolve the sugar in the vinegar in a large pan. Add the bay leaves. Prepare the apples, onions, garlic and ginger and add these also with the salt and raisins. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer for about 2 hours, stirring frequently, until the excess liquid is gone.

Cool and jar. Gorgeous in a cheeze and pickle sarny, as part of a ploughman’s lunch or just with some crackers as shown above.

In case you missed it last time

Olio is an app that you can download to your phone to share food in your local area. People share things that they can’t use up in time, while farmers and gardeners sometimes offer produce that they have too much of. We’ve added this information to our free food section but you can just search for the app.
