While we were in Daylesford on our road trip we just happened to be wandering through a retro and second had store when out of the corner of my eye I spotted a retro orange and yellow preserving unit just like the green one I had at home. On closer inspection it turns out that the unit is brand new and came complete with the jar opener, recipe book, air remover, bottle brush, thermometer and a brewers thermometer. I could not believe my luck and it only cost $70 for the lot.
So the preserving unity then had to join us for the rest of our road trip which was no small feat as it is quite bulky. But as I told Hubby we WILL find room.

I really could not believe what I was seeing when I saw it was brand new but I am sure that once we get to New Zealand I will be able to put it to good use and change that. Mum and Dad have a big veggie garden and orchard for us to take advantage of and I already have some asparagus plants planted there so I am sure it will not be too long till the new one gets christened.
