Great for snacking too!
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.

Last year I found a way to deal with those bigger-than-cherry tomatoes (but too small to peel and can). I started pickling them using a mild and sweet pickling solution--equal parts vinegar and water, half vinegar amount of sugar (i.e. 4 cups vinegar, 4 cups water, 2 cups sugar). These tomatoes are great for stir fries and stews--whenever I want tomatoes with a little "zing"!
