On a similar vein - I am running a dog training day in a field for our Club next month, which will be covered by our insurance provided I prepare Risk Assessments, and do a safety talk.  Damned nuisance but they won't cover us otherwise!  We have templates for dog shows and for shooting days but not for basic training days!  I now have to think back to the day I visited the grounds and remember what hazards there were and how we should deal with them Aaaaarrrrrggggghhh!

Hi Zackyb - I make it using the cold process method (ie the old fashioned way!) with caustic soda, goats milk olive oil...
you'll need more than one goat if you go ahead - they need goaty company  :)

If it's fizzy, yes throw it away but if furry just take off the mould and the jam underneath will be fine.
Take it from me who's been eating furry jam for 60 years!!

If you've set up your own company, you should be able to go to a wholesalers - I have a Costco card and get my sugar from there. This year we have strawberry jam, raspberry jam, pickled onions, chutney and rosehip syrup - admittedly, mostly will go as christmas presents though!  :D

Went to get some sugar yesterday from Asda and thought great they have 5kg bags!! then looked at the price £4.90 something, so checked what 2KG bags were and they are £1.35. So buying in bulk was 98p per kilo or buying the smaller bags is 67.5p per kilo!!!!!!!!  ??? do they think us consumers are stupid?? just shows you that human nature must see bulk bags and assume that you get a better deal so just buy it without looking at the prices but you end up paying 50% more! i was furios.

Going to check Costco prices today and see whether they apply the same rip-off philosophy

Busy day got 1000 jars turning up all of which need filling  :wave:  :pig:
