Creating your own ingredients

Chocolate
I don’t know whether I would actually make it myself. But I really would like to, just to say I can.

Yoghurt
I love the idea of making one’s own yoghurt – plus it would be a good skill to have.

Vinegar
As vinegar can be used in both cooking and cleaning I reckon it is a fairly essential skill to have.

Pasta
To go with all those pasta dishes. This is definitely a skill I want to have, I was a little put off by the pasta-making experiences I had in primary school. It always seemed so impossible. But many things that seemed impossible to me as a child I find are easy as an adult. So I guess I’ll give it a go.

Butter
Oh man, making your own butter is awesome. But you have to get the cream from somewhere… oh well, we will work on that later.

Recipes

Using Read it Later I have saved a million tabs. So the plan is to sort some out. I thought I would start with recipes because that is easiest to deal with. FTR I have not actually cooked ANY of these recipes, so I take no responsibility for their worth. I would like to try them out, so if anyone does and finds one to be great/crap, let me know in the comments. 🙂
