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 somewhereā€¦ 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. šŸ™‚
