Sooliz you should come to the bootsales around here they are stuffed with kettles ,must admit ime a bit of a hoarder of kettles ,cant resist sometimes ,today i was tempted by a brown beige enamel flat bottom one for a fiver ,still in the box ,but i remembered that look she gives me when i buy another one ,i have a blue pyramid le cruset enamel one that has been with thirty odd years it was brought for me by a lady who shared my passion for tea when i was buiding my first narrowboat arround a rayburn No 1 and has been with me all over europe and on many different stoves ,its battered charred and well used but i wouldent part with it for anything short of love .

The nearest I get to those sort of deals is when the farmers have are rebelling and start giving dairy out free to who ever is around, which is not normally me. The last time they did this they burned a load of old tyres in the access road to a big hypermarket protesting over the deal with milk. The police just stood and watched!big_laugh

Well, if it's good enough for the army, Kaye, then it's good enough for you and yours ok.  Well done you.

i think were on bargain weekend, last year i was given a huge chrome juicer by the lady at the RSPCA shop as theyre not allowed to sell electricals and i sometimes cat sit for them . it has languished in the back of the cupboard but today we found yet more apples so i thought we would give it a go ....5 bags of apples later everyone is sick of apple juice ...lol ...the verdict , i wouldnt use one everyday as its a pig to clean , meanwhile im just trying a load of the pulp in the bread machine to see if it will make apple and cinamon bread . I thought it has to be worth a go as we dont have a dehydrator

Kaye, I think you should expand on that subject and give the idea of some things you have made.

I'll try that again!
