This is a great food preservation 101 post on curing salmon in salt to create glorious Gravlax. Pirate Jeni shares the process, the history of gravlax, & instructions to make your own aquavit (a Scandinavian flavored spirit caraway/lemon/dill).
We are a small group of women, living within the Capital Region (Albany, Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga Springs) striving for a sustained connection to our kitchens, our gardens and our communities. We host two food swaps a month, host a monthly podcast on ITUNES: From Scratch Club Podcast and we also run a virtual 'cook-along' book club on Goodreads. Lastly, we run a DIY School: FSC Academy. The rest of the month we are on the blog, sharing stories, recipes, DIY projects, homesteading tutorials, kitchen tips & tricks and food policy news in hopes of inspiring people to jump back into the kitchen, their gardens and communities as a daily way of life regardless of income, space & time.
