Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
A variant on a red wine pickled beet recipe from Linda Ziedrich's The Joy of Pickling. Rather than use her suggested ginger and cinnamon, we added my beloved nutmeg (CT native that I am) and some star anise.
A yummy applesauce/blueberry condiment that would lend itself nice nicely to pancakes, crepes, toast, or peanut butter sandwiches.
Plum Apple Butter with fall spices. So easy and makes your house smell amazing. My new favourite spread.
A wonderfully spicy and not too sweet blueberry jam that is gorgeous in the jar. Enjoy!
