Orkney’s mainland has very good EV infrastructure, not really surprising when there are so many wind generators round the island and if you’re driving for more than 30 miles you’re either going back on yourself or you’re in the sea.
As well as the usual suspects in the form of many Nissan Leafs and the occasional Tesla I have seen a few of both PSA flavours of the Mitubishi i-MiEV EV – normally a very rare sight.
Fully Charged has been to Orkney and is covering the renewable technology.
Boil the water and dissolve the salt. Allow it to cool.
8 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1 bunch of fresh dill
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
4 tablespoons black peppercorns
3 oak, blackberry or cherry, leafs
2 bay leafs
De-seeded red chilli or fresh horseradish (optional)
Wash the gherkins and top and tail them.
Put the dill in the bottom of the jar and pack one layer of the gherkins in vertically.
Cover the first layer of gherkins with brine.
Add the seasoning on top of the gherkins and then pack the rest of the gherkins in.
Fill to the top with brine and weigh the gherkins down with a saucer. Cover with a cloth and store them so the air can circulate underneath the jar. It’s normal for white foam to appear on the top of the liquid.
