Whats Cooking? Preserving? Fermenting? Infusing?

What's Cooking? Preserving? Fermenting? Infusing?

Tis the season; Thanksgiving Day officially sets off the holiday season! Today is an over-hyped day referred to as "Black Friday"--something that I am totally not involved in--other than to be sure and stay home. I have been busy preserving, drying, fermenting and infusing for months now. I feel blessed to be able to grow a garden and lots of herbs, to harvest them and put them up for food and medicine during the months ahead and to share them as gifts. For me, it is rewarding and satisfying to give a homemade, heartfelt gift. It is also enjoyable to gather with kin or a few friends and have a session of creativity--it is easier and more fun to share in a productive group activity. Here are a few projects, I've been up to. How about you?
