Workshop progress

Trusted Steve comes and helps us make a roof for the workshop entrance; the Felder finds a home (shame they didn’t give us any blades with it), and the workshop is being put to good use to make a tradeshow stand to promote the swedish wood industry.

Rosehip syrup

Nypon sirop or for the cloggies amongst us; Roosvicee.

± 1l of water
± 1kg of rosehips
± 500g sugar

Top and tail the rosehips.
Boil the water.
Mince the rosehips through a food processor.
Transfer the fruit into fast boiling water and bring to the boil again. Remove from heat and leave for 15 minutes.
Pour through a sterilised jelly bag/or muslin square and allow the majority of the liquid to drip through.
Pour extracted liquid into a clean saucepan and boil to reduce a bit.
Add the sugar and boil rapidly for another 5 minutes.

Delicious! And full of vitamin C.

Birthday progress

Marije’s birthday sees the first sunny day in ages. Progress has been slow without our excellent team of students and friends (and students who are now friends) and continual rain. Luckily the German customs are even more square then the Swedes when it comes to paper work, so Paula has returned for a few more days offering a welcome helping hand.

All I want for my birthday is a giant table saw…

Friggebod fins are still a work in progress.

Ali and Chiara’s hole keeps filling up with water. I don’t think that was part of the plan.

Friggebod very nearly completely clad, and waiting for enough dry weather for us to be able to tar the roof.
