wave One of my few claims to fame.  I taught Peter Wishart one of the original members of the group.  He was the keyboard player.  He was a lovely blonde   boy from a super family and yes, he was very musical.

Kaye, how goes the experiment? Did it work?

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

lol...the experiment appears to be going quite well so far, apart from the rather odd cooking smell, grating the wretched things is a chore but hey its the school holidays and i was feeling sadistic , so set the teen slaves on . makes a rather treacly syrup once its sieved , that is hyper sweet , just debating wether to try it in a glut jam as it is or  pour some in a tray nd leave in the airing cupboard

update on sugar experiments!!! the syrup i froze last year and forgot about is excellent for jam making, nobody has even noticed the change from bagged suger to suger beet syrup, the dehydrated version wasnt a huge sucess it turned into a sort of brittle sheet, so it will be glean sugar beat season soon..lol¦may even try bottling some if i have spare jars
