Rather than looking at exactly how long it’s been since something was last added to Pan and Bottle, let’s just say it’s been too long. Far too long. It’s been a busy few months – a new job and moving home certainly take up a fair amount of time. But that’s no excuse! So I thought it high time for a new recipe or two.

This weekend an entire Saturday was spent in the kitchen creating two sauces – a habanero and chipotle ketchup, which was then used as a (somewhat spicy) base for my new favourite barbecue sauce.

In between stirring sauces, I also set up a YouTube channel. I thought it could be nice to make a few videos of the recipes to supplement the blog posts to add a little more colour and explanation. I’ll also use it to share some of my favourite videos I’ve used to teach myself how to do certain things, or to add explanation to the latest kitchen gadget I may be using and what the heck it actually does.

At the moment, all that’s on the channel is the Pan and Bottle logo. I promise that will change over the next couple of weeks as I get around to updating it, building a few playlists and uploading my first video! In the meantime you can see the Pan and Bottle YouTube channel here.

So, apologies it’s been too long. The new recipes will be ready and up in the next couple of weeks. Let’s not leave it this long again!

Infusion tips after a few infusions under my belt

Infusion tips after a few infusions under my beltHere are Pan and Bottle’s Top Five Infusion Tips to help you on your way with your own infusions!

Time to share

I’ve now completed two infusions (not including the ones I’ve done in the past before starting Pan and Bottle).   I’ve already learnt a fair deal, so thought now would be a good time to share a few infusion tips with you to get you on your way with either trying the recipes on the site, or coming up with your own.Continue reading

Hi there!  There are two possibilities if this is the only post you can see on my blog so far.  Either I haven’t got around to adding anything to the site yet, or something has gone very, very wrong.  Hopefully it’s the former.

I’ll be putting some of the results here of recipes I’ve tried, recipes I’ve tweaked or twisted and recipes I’ve come up with on my own (try the latter at your own risk)!  I’ll hopefully supplement these with some nice images, a few things I’d like to try and occasionally maybe a shout out to an inspiring site I visit a lot.

Whatever ends up on here – I hope you enjoy it!
