Conversion Tables

Living in the Southern Hemisphere, where metric measurements are used, all my recipes list what I am used to! However, you may not be used to Celsius, litres and grams and so I hope you find the following useful to you. I know I refer to it often when using recipes from people abroad. If there are any other helpful hints you want to see here, please leave me a comment.

  1. Wonderful blog and your creations are quite lovely! I would like to follow you on this sight.
    I am a huge fan of lavender and lime. Nice job!

  4. I actually have a question for you. Do you know of a safe, natural
    preservative that can extend the shelf life of a vegetable chutney
    type pickle in glass jars?

    Kind regards,

    Beverley Joshua.

    • Dear Beverly,
      I assume that you are canning this chutney. First proper technique used when canning will do the most. Also the ratio of sugar to vinegar or more simply the starch to the acids must be higher on the acid side to extend shelf life. Bacteria in the air becomes your next enemy. Seal with Wax or Parrifin also.
