Links: Mincemeat, Harvest Crackers, and a Winner

Roasting garlic for a batch of mashed potatoes (my family's t-giving meal is today!).

I hope that everyone out there had a lovely Thanksgiving! Scott and I spent the actual holiday with his mom in Northern Virginia and then came back up to Philadelphia for a second celebratory meal with my extended family on Saturday night. My cousins sent me home with both turkey carcasses and I’ve been a machine for the last 24 hours, picking them apart, making stock, and running quart jars of finished stock through the pressure canner. It’s such satisfying preserving, because it is such a useful thing to have in the pantry.

Now, links!

Homemade Living with Ashley English

Thanks to everyone who took the time out of their busy pre-Thanksgiving days last week to enter the Ashley English Homemade Living series giveaway! The winner is #18, Chip in SC. He said, “I am thankful for my family and friends!” Chip, I feel the very same way.

    Congratulations to Chip on the win.

    I also make stock using the chicken and turkey carcasses. Glad to hear I’m not the only person who does this

    Thanks so much for the link love! I follow you religiously, and this feels a bit like a revelation :) (Also, we’re currently eyeing some preserves from your book to make for the holidays. But I won’t reveal which ones, on the off chance any friends/ family members read this).

    Thanks so much for the link to the harvest crisps. Safeway quit making my favorite flavor (apricot!) of a similar cracker. I foresee some kitchen experimenting in my future :-)
