what you need

clean glass bottles with caps

paper/adhesive-backed paper

spray-on glue (if using paper)

scissors

old burnt-down candles

sharp craft knife

small glue sticks

tin can

old tea towel/cloth

gas lighter

how to do it...

STEP ONE

Soak the glass bottles in warm, soapy water to remove labels. Sterilise the bottles by boiling them in a large pot over high heat for 5 minutes, ensuring that they’re completely covered by the water. Allow to dry thoroughly. Find recipes for your favourite sauces and/or salad dressings from the F&HE website at foodandhome.co.za. Design labels for your choice of sauces and/or salad dressings digitally or hand-write them on pieces of paper/adhesive-backed paper to fit the area on the front of the bottle. Cut out/print the labels.

sorghum

Sorghum isa grain which originated in Ethiopia and is commonly grown in South Africa and Africa. It is best-known locally in its malted and ground form, Maltabella porridge. This superfood grew in popularity largely due to the fact that the sorghum plant thrives in drier areas. In addition, it’s extremely nutritious, being naturally gluten-free and rich in phenolic phytochemicals (which are antioxidants), fibre and iron.
