A documentation of my preservation and preparation of local foods as I work through the seasons. This will serve as a reference tool for me in the future and as a sharing guide for family and friends...and anyone else interested. Hopefully, I can offer some useful methods, tips and recipes to share with everyone--be they novice or pro--and encourage them to join me in the exciting world of preserving and cooking with local foods.

I never worry about e-coli
Every time I hear of a new e-coli outbreak, I am reminded of how lucky we are to have our local farmers. Buying local food products allows me the opportunity to become familiar with the source of my food products; to know what goes in and on the products I buy; and the conditions under which it was grown or raised. Consequently, I am never concerned when I learn of outbreaks of food-borne illnesses in food products from unknown or far-off origins.
