Links: Pickled Strawberries, Green Onion Kimchi, and Winners

This week has been a bit of a mess in my world. Just when I got myself clear of a 48 hour stomach bug, I managed to slide an inch-long splinter into the ball of my left foot, necessitating a trip to urgent care. I managed a pot of soup and some simply homemade pizza, but otherwise we’ve been surviving on scrambled eggs, bagged salad, and take-out. May this week be a little easier. Now links!


This Monday night (April 24, 2017), I’m going to do a Facebook Live broadcast on the topic of quick pickling. Join me at 9 pm eastern time and bring all your quick pickle questions!

Finally, our five winners in last week’s Cuppow giveaway. Thanks to everyone who entered!

Food in Jars Stickers for Sale!

Back in 2014, when Preserving by the Pint was just coming out, I ordered a box of stickers with the orange Food in Jars logo on them. I handed out these stickers at libraries, farmers markets, and book shops and was delighted people put them on their water bottles, laptops, and car bumpers.

I’ve been out of that first batch of stickers for awhile now and have missed them. So when a coupon code from Sticker Mule landed in my inbox, I decided it was high time to order up a new batch. Die cut and made of weather and scratch-resistant vinyl, these stickers are kind of awesome.

If you want one of these stickers, I’m offering up 150 for sale here on the blog for $3 a piece. If you want one, use this link to send me $3 via Paypal (make sure that your mailing address is accessible via Paypal, so I know where to send the sticker). Once I get your order, I’ll drop the sticker into the mail for you! And let me know if you have any questions!

Links: Date Charoset, Speedy Pickles, and a Winner

Happy Monday, friends! I spent all of Saturday working the Philly Farm & Food Fest, which left Sunday feeling like Saturday and today feeling entirely off. As a result, I’m running about a day late in every way, including with my blogging. So even though I normally do these links on Sunday evenings, I’m serving them up today. Hope they’re still tasty!

As as sad as I am that the Pint & Half jars I featured in last week’s giveaway with Fillmore Container are being discontinued, it was a pleasure to hear many of you all love them too! The giveaway winner is in the widget below!

Links: Taco Sauce, Corn Salsa, and Winners

While I am more than a little itchy for the true warmth of spring, I love the feeling of these days being balanced in between seasons. The air is cool, but the light draws more generous with every passing day. It feels hopeful and new and I am grateful for it. Now, some links.

Winners of the Mason Jar Lifestyle giveaway are below in the widget!

Links: Asparagus Tarts, Potluck Nation, and Winners

Spring tiptoed in this morning at 6:28 am. While I know intellectually that it’s a mostly arbitrary dividing line, I can’t help but imagine that the air smells sweeter and that the quality of the light is warmer and more substantial. While I dream about local strawberries and asparagus (still weeks away), some links.

My friend Kristin has launched a lovely movement called Potluck Nation. She’s the author of the book Modern Potluck and is hoping to use the power of the potluck to bring people together heal some of what’s been fractured in this country over the recent months and years. As an avowed lover of potlucks myself, I am fully on board and hope to host a few potlucks of my own (I plan on making the asparagus tart pictured above. It’s one I developed for a column I wrote many moons ago. I’ve reprinted the recipe below). Perhaps some of you will be inspired to do the same!

Here’s the winner of the Ball Canning giveaway I hosted last week!

Links: Citrus, Taproot Mag, and the Yohann iPad Stand

I hope you all had a really lovely weekend. It’s been so fun to see all the pictures the March Mastery Challenge folks have been posting on Facebook and Instagram of their jellies and shrubs. And thanks to everyone who tuned in for the live broadcast on Facebook last Thursday. If you missed it, you can still watch it here. Now, links!

In other news, the latest issue of Taproot Mag hit newsstands and mailboxes in the last week. The theme of this issue is Weave and I contributed a piece on woven baked goods. The cinnamon braids included in the story was one of the very first things I ever made and it is dear to me because it’s something I would make with my Aunt Doris.

If you spot a copy in the wild, please do pick it up. In addition to my story, you’ll find other recipes, a pattern for a lovely knitted hat, and much, much more.

And finally, let me tell you about the best iPad stand I’ve ever used. I often bring an iPad into the kitchen when I need to reference an online recipe. In the past, I’ve used little tripods or the folding cover that attaches via magnets to prop up the iPad in order to read the recipe. However, they’ve never felt particularly secure and they didn’t really keep the iPad out of the fray of my workspace.

Then, a couple months ago, the folks from a Swiss company asked if they could send me one of their stands. Because this was an area where I have been looking for a better solution, I said yes and I’m so glad I did. I love this stand. It holds my iPad Air securely and is able to display the screen in three different orientations. Though I yearned for their wooden stand, I opted for the black plastic one because I knew that it would clean up better (and that’s always a concern in the kitchen). I have nothing but good things to say about this sleek and useful stand. If you’re in the market for something similar, I suggest you take a look at the Yohann.

(The unit you see above was sent to me at no cost. I was not obligated to write about it, but have chosen to do so because I really like it and thought some of you would find a similar item useful. I was not compensated for this post beyond the sample unit.)
