All three of the remaining recipes - cherries, peaches and OT Tutti Frutti are in process here, but they aren't really ready to be opened and tasted yet (actually, I did taste the cherries a while ago, and they were good, but not really ready yet). You've got a testing in process, but it will take another month or so before I can accurately report on them.

Congratulations, Kelle, all the FP TESTERS, and Sharon in NY! :D The next hurdle is to start getting the input from testers sorted into order in the chapter by recipe and get it posted on my website for all the world to see. Tentative schedule calls for that process to begin in January.

I use the cook for a month type method but the way I do is that whenever I make a specific dish I multiply up the dish several times and freeze the excess in portion sized tubs. I have a large number of single portion sized tubs which stack extremely well in the freezer. It means I can deal with any and all impromptu guests and I only really need to cook once a week. The best thing is that is really is not much extra work and some dishes particularly curries and chillis significantly improve being frozen.

The nostalgia window on ice houses is very interesting. In the UK we have a lot of historic houses which are owned and maintained by the National Trust. A number of these properties have ice houses which you can visit. They were used extensively, particularly by the big houses. Interestingly many also had facility in them to store produce, particularly meat during the summer period. They were filled with that much ice that they could supply a large estate with ice for the whole summer, as well as preserve a lot of meats etc. They even would make ice cream etc with them.

On an aside from this you will find a number of these houses also have cool rooms for storing dairy produce. These often had marble tables in them that had channels cut into them, water would then be run round theses channels. The cool water would keep the marble cool, an effected heightened in the summer by the cooling effect of water evaporating. They would store cheese, milk, cream, blancmanges, jellies and other desserts and dairy produce on them successfully, sometimes for several days. Eggs on the other hand were stored at room temperature in hay lined boxes.
