Playing Big and Little

I love playing big and little. When I have been making lots of bread, I also make miniature bread....when I have been making preserved lemons, I make minature preserved lemons....when I have been making blackberry and apple jelly, I make miniature jelly.




I love messing around in the kitchen! My latest experiment is having a go at making apple cider.....a friend gave me a recipe that just uses bought juice from the supermarket, so I bought a demijohn and it has been bubbling away on the kitchen bench for nearly a week! How fascinating!! If it tastes nice (not all my experiments are a success!!), I will try making it with freshly juiced apple juice next time.....it's nearly apple season now.



And I just happened to have a miniature demijohn hanging around and here is the little version in the dollshouse kitchen! Giggle, giggle!!

I wasn't to sure if the first pic was of minis or not, so guess who was the one giggling when I saw the last pic. LOL Carolyn, your kitchen looks great. You would never know it's a mini one! =)

I, too, love to create someting in miniature that I have in "real life". What a unique addition to your mini kitchen! And I am sure the cider will be delish!

It's hard to believe it's a mini kitchen. It's just great!

Lovely!!!! You must tell how was the cider when it's ready. We must wait for half a year to get fresh apples...

I got a thirst for sweet and fruity drink, looking at your photos ...
I'm going to give me a blood orange juice :-)
Then let's see if I can make even the miniature version...

How wonderful! Both siders look good. It is hard to tell which is real!

I'd love to get the recipe! I love the taste of cider but it's so expensive compared to sweet apple juice.

Difficult to know what is real and what is miniature. I love your mini kitchen.

Hi, I found your wonderful blog the other day and added it to my blog list for others to find also (this is my way of keeping current with your blog). All I can say is wow! Your miniature house is fantastic...I spent hours reading every page, and checking the links provided. I have been so inspired that my daughter and I got our doll house out of the granny flat and have decided to make one up too. Bye, Tamara

I agree... It is hard to tell what is real and what in miniature. I have never seen a demijohn before.
