10 food basics


By Michelle Shearer

There is something deeply satisfying about having your own ingredients, that you made, in the larder.  With all the crap that manufacturers throw in to their food products these days, making your own gives you the peace of mind that you know exactly what you are feeding your family.  not only that, but often it can be much cheaper to make your own than buying from the shops e.g. our bagel recipe = approximately 20cents each to make versus approximately $1 each bought at the shops.
