Good Gifting (BBB)

Nov
28


A most excellent holiday canned gift–Orange Marmalade. I’m in love with this stuff, and everyone I give it to raves about it, too. It’s hard to keep on the pantry shelf. But not hard to make! It takes some time, but it’s worth it.


Find the recipe for Orange Marmalade on my blog here and also at Farm Bell Recipes.

    this is a great gift idea. I’ve decided to give gifts of home-made food this year as I’m fatigued with struggling to come up with gifts that people don’t already have, and to give something people need. Food meets that criteria beautifully. so jars of salsa and orange marmalade for everyone! BBB!!!

    Just stumbled upon your website and I am going to enjoy it immensely. I was searching for what we called “country celery” in Pennsylvania many years ago. You could buy it in the farmer’s markets during the winter and spring and I think it involved harvesting the celery late in its season and then burying it in trenches to be dug up later. I remember the celery being almost white but oooh, so crisp and tasty. Anyone know the process for this?

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....
