Tart and Sweet

May
3


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.


Do you need this book today? Let me know!

    I would love having Tart & Sweet! I had my first garden last year, and enjoyed freezing tomato sauce and squash. I didn’t do so well with the peppers – green & red – though I’ll try again this year in a different spot. And the cucumbers! Wow – who’da thought they could grow so quickly! This year I’ll be planting: tomatoes, red & green bell peppers, cucumbers, radishes, and sweet basil. The rest I get from the farmers market. Would be great to know how to can – we already have two freezers for meat & stuff, and a pantry of store-bought canned goods. This city girl is truly appreciating the taste and quality of home made goods and would love to be able to do more of it herself!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
