tomato jam

I’ve been in Portland for the last few days, visiting my parents, making jam with the last of their tomatoes, and going to a retreat at a gorgeous place called Menucha out in the Columbia River Gorge. It’s been really good to let the beauty of the Pacific Northwest wash over me. Now, links!

apples and a pawpaw

My apologies for these very tardy links and winners. I felt a little off on Friday and woke up early Saturday morning with the stomach flu. I’m no longer feeling like death is mere moments away, but I’m not quite back to my chipper, food-focused self. Here are the few links I could gather up for you.

Amanda's ferments

A little over a week ago, my friend Amanda‘s new cookbook, Ferment Your Vegetables, came out. In celebration, she had a little lunchtime gathering for those of us local folks. She brought nearly two dozen samples of recipes from the book for us to try and we dug into those jars. Everything was amazing. I can’t wait to try out the book in my own kitchen. You guys are going to love it, too. Now, links!

roasted butternut cubes

This past weekend was a relatively quiet one. I taught a jam making class on Saturday morning at the Morris Arboretum’s Bloomfield Farm. After the class was over and I was outside, loading up my car, I took a moment to stand and listen to the wind blowing through the trees. I love so much about my high rise life, but whenever I hear it, I’m reminded how much I miss the sound of that leaves and branches being moved by the breeze.

Links: Grape Jelly, Asian Pears, and a Winner

apples and quince

I am so enjoying the change of season this year. We’ve had a glorious stretch of sunny, crisp days here in Philadelphia, and I’m feeling awfully grateful for the beauty of this particular autumn.

A dear friend sent me two boxes containing apples and quince from her trees. I dashed through the farmers market this morning and came home with apples, asian pears, sea scallops, and a giant bundle of white turnips, which are destined for this soup. Life is good. Now, links!
