Recently in the Kitchen

Dear Friends,
I've been busy, working a lot and haven't had time to do much else. I can't say that I'll be less busy any time soon, but I'm doing my best to find time to cook more and do lots of preserving as the summer goes on. In the mean time, I hope you don't mind a quick round up of what I've had time for in the kitchen recently.


I made sourdough rolls and cultured butter for the Food Swap. After swapping, I came home with a few different jams, maple syrup, cookies, and pesto.


While the rolls were baking, I made a small batch of rhubarb jam, which just might taste like summer in a jar.


I harvested my window box greens and used them in a salad with strawberries and basil.

What have you been eating, swapping, preserving or harvesting? I'd love to hear about it!

  1. I've only read about food swaps but I wouild love to participate in one. Then I wonder what it is that I would make? Strawberry and Rhubarb preserves are scheduled for tomorrow. I've been making Rhubarb syrup a lot for natural sodas.
