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?
Sultanas, aka golden raisins. Spice brine, boil, but in half, dehydrate and presto...organic, non-sulphured sultanas!
Melons always seem to be over-joyously celebrated the first few days they come in from the field, and then…what the heck am I going to do with all these melons!

Really folks. This stuff is the bomb. Slathered on a burger…you needn’t anything more. Ketchup in cowboy boots and a little black dress!
A jammy semi-savory preserve using pluots. You choose the herb!
Elderberry syrup time folks! No elderberries? Plant them in the spring and the following year you will be using this recipe and so many more!
Yes, it’s true! Cucumber chips!
A tad laborious but completely delicious!
