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.

As soon as Halloween's over, I get out my November table decor. The tablecloth and napkins were made by my mother-in-law, Gen Lutzke. It's got a Native American type pattern which reminds me of Thanksgiving. I like to be sure Thanksgiving decor isn't forgotten between pumpkins and Christmas trees. The dishes I use are called brownware and the set includes individual lidded soup pots.
