I’m stopping in at our little town farmers market today to see if I can sell anything. My cousin will be there selling his cornmeal and other things. He convinced me to go, too. I’ll be selling candles, preserves, eggs, breads, maybe pies, we’ll see. I’m not taking much today–we can’t stay long before we have to head to master gardener class #9. (Ten classes in all, which means I’ll be done next week!)

Today’s BBB giveaway is another copy of Tart and Sweet: 101 Canning and Pickling Recipes for the Modern Kitchen by Kelly Geary and Jessie Knadler. One of the things I love about this book, aside from the creative recipes and gorgeous photos, is that it’s arranged seasonally, which makes it easy to browse ideas that are available to you now-now-now from your garden or the farmers market. Spring means Strawberry Orange Compote or Pickled Asapargus–or maybe some Sweet Apple Cider Baby Beets? Many of the canning recipes are accompanied by further recipes to use what you’ve made, which is handy and mouthwatering. I want to make Strawberry Orange Compote just so I can make the milkshake. The salad recipes makes me want to can the Sweet Apple Cider Baby Beets because it actually makes beets sound good. I’m not a huge beets fan, but the photo of the salad looks delicious.
