If you own a Slow Cooker (crock pot) use it!

You’re able to make some lovely stock with the Turkey, Chicken well, any left-over meat bones really.

Just chuck all those bones into your slow cooker along with some veggies, onion, carrots any veg that you might have that’s about to turn and needs using up. Also add a bay leaf or two and some mixed herbs.

Then fill the slow cooker up with cold water, to about 8cm/3ins from the top of the slow cooker.

stock-1Turn the slow cooker on to LOW and leave it for 24 hours….YES 24 hours! You’ll get all the flavour and taste from those bones, left over meat and veggies.

This is what you’ll get after 12 hours….

stock-2

After 24 hours…and the bones are bare.

stock-3

Oh and I forgot to say how nice your house will smell too! 🙂

After 24 hours you need to get a big pan and a colander and strain everything from the slow cooker. Once you’ve strained it all through the colander you’ll then need to strain it again, twice prefferably, through a sieve…you definately don’t want any bits of bone left in there!!

You’ll be left with a tasty pot of homemade stock, ready to make your own gravy or to add to other recipes as you can freeze the stock for later use. Freeze in glass jars as long as you leave space at the top, in soup bags or even ice cube trays.

Homemade Cereal Bars October 8, 2014

Cereal Bars

Why buy when you can make them easily at home? These are so easy and also use up all those bits of cereal from the bottom of the boxes, if you have kiddies, you know what I mean!

 

Ingredients

 

6 cups of mixed cereal

10 oz marshmallows

3 Tbsp butter

 

Method

 

Line a 9” by 13” tin with baking parchment. I used a glass pyrex oblong dish.

In a large saucepan melt the butter and marshmallows until completely melted and all gooey.

Pour the mixed cereal straight in and stir well to combine, making sure all the cereal is covered in the marshmallow mixture.

Pour into your lined tin, leave to cool for awhile then place in the fridge.

Perfect for a snack!

I used rice crispies, sugar puffs, frosties and cookie crisp cereals but use up whatever you have!
