    If you have a dishwasher, run the jars through the hottest cycle you can without them breaking, obviously no detergent. Failing that, book the jars for ten minutes.

    Mrs Grim also said that big w has a ball mason preserver starter kit with a heap of good stuff in it. They also stock top quality jars. Alternatively, spotlight has some as well.

    Put everything in hot, put the lid on while still hot then let it cool and settle upside down. Helps seal the jar and keep longer.

    Let fly the recipes then of your special dishes you like doing.

    My best dish

    1kg green prawns. Shelled completely. If you want to go to the hassle of deveining them knock yourself out

    In the wok dollop of oil half a tea spoon of chilli flakes or better yet the real mcoy and clove of crushed garlic.
    Brown prawns for 2-3 mins

    Then throw in 100 grams of black olives sliced (about the size you get at Subway)
    Fresh Basil Leaves diced to about 1cm square chunks
    250 grams Semi Dried Tomatoes
    1 Diced Brown onion
    Throw in another clove of crushed garlic and the other 1/2 teaspoon of chilli flakes

    Now more tomatoes are required I usually use the little cherries I grow in the garden cut in half If you have nice juicy tomatoes of any size they will suffice. If you don't then I recommend a tin of diced tomatoes from the supermarket. Your after the juice to fill up the wok and infuse the dish

    Cook for 5 mins and serve with rice

    The Chilli is the key ingredient. Up it as much as you like but don't downgrade it if you don't like the stuff. The dish is meant to have some tang

    I have tried this with other shit I like Mushrooms Carrots Snowpeas etc
    Don't **** with something simple is my advice

    That will serve 4-6 depending on how fat you ****s are

    my wife agreed, but she boils the jars and then puts them in a low temp oven (100-120C) until dry. keep warm in the oven and fill.

    my tips: good quality apron, a funnel, and good heat resistant gloves. that stuff is f'ing hot, sugary and sticky (if it's a jam). you don't want it on you.

    Going on friday night to a cooking event with my cousin and a few friends for his birthday (this is switzerland for you, birthday last year in december) birthday gift friday.

    Basically you go to a place heap of kitchen setups and get instructed in cooking a dish cook it all yourself and then eat. A little special etc..


    Not sure if something that exist in aus, will report on what we cook and how it went

    I cooked duck for the first time ever the other night - I normally order duck in restaurants cause it's something I could never get hold of

    just a maryland in the oven with roast veg

    not bad, but my gosh it stinks to **** when it's raw

    nearly as bad as cooking kangaroo

    Really? Never would have guessed that. Good tip.

    What will you change for next time?




    I tried my chutney on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tasted alright but there was no chili zing. Needed the seeds left in and maybe an extra chili or two.

    Bump for this thread.

    The wife is interested in getting a Thermomix and we had a demonstration yesterday. I'm not convinced because for the money, I don't think we would get the use.

    Who here has one (I assume Hawk's chef has at least 3) and how often do you use it? What do you make and have you found it value for money? Can it handle a capacity to feed your family? Has the novelty of it worn off?

    have one, but it's not for me as I can cook

    the missus uses it for risotto and will use it for baby food but really if you can cook it's a waste, if you can't, it might be handy

    hey boz, how much different is the risotto to something you can knock up yourself? it's all i've ever seen people cook in a thermomix

    it looks like it takes away the best part of cooking a risotto, that is getting stuck into the cooking wine while stirring it

    We have one of the old TM31's. We use it to feed a family of four.

    Ours gets used pretty much daily. Curries, Stroganoff, various parts of a lasagna, friday night soup night, pizza dough...... Wife makes dips and crap in it, but I'm not into that stuff.

    I can cook without it, but I'm lazy and between work and the kids I'll cut corners where I can making dinner. Thermomix is good for that.

    When the kids were babies we did use it to make baby food. We chop left over veggies up for the chickens in it.

    Still cant cook a steak though and that alone should halve its asking price.

    Thanks Sammydog. Would you say you've found it value for money with the use you've had from it?
