@rumtscho both very good points, hadn't thought about either! I'll give Cremefine a try, thanks.

comment Pumpkin rotting, need to process it now - any ideas with a long shelf life?
Thanks, yeah, this sounds sensible. I forgot to mention that I don't have much freezing space (except for the 7°C cold storage I have access to), but it looks like it's the only option so I'll have to try and find some more

@justkt pureeing and freezing might end up being the best option after all, yeah. I forgot to mention that I don't have much freezing space, but I'll try to find some more. I don't have the equipment to can it, but thanks for the link, interesting reading!

comment Cooling jelly without a refrigerator
Thanks very much everyone! I ended up using a combination of cold water and @derobert's suggestion above. Out of three bowls, the ceramic one I placed in a larger bowl with cold water, in a windy spot, and ice cubes gelled best.

Yeah, that is the first thing that I thought of, but all those nearby who I know well work during the day. Still, absolutely worth mentioning

@rmx I drink only rice milk at home, which can stand warmth for a few days. If you don't need dairy products (or can live with having them only in winter), living without a fridge it works surprisingly well!

comment How can I tell whether beetroot is still edible?
This gives me something to go by - I'll have to use my judgement now to make the call. It is still firm, feels a bit like a tennis ball with a soft surface, so I tend to think it's okay. Also good to know it can be eaten raw (as opposed to beans etc.) Thanks!
