I am about to dash off to teach a weekend-long workshop up at the Omega Institute, but I wanted to drop in with a couple reminders as well as some suggestions for good things to can this time of year.
First up is a reminder that tomorrow is last day to get your first month of MightyNest’s MightyFix for free (it’s $10 a month after that). Make sure to use the widget in this blog post to get that deal.
Our friends over at Fillmore Container are sponsoring a couple giveaways right now and I thought you guys might like to know so you can toss your hats in the proverbial ring. On their blog, they’re offering up a Mason Jar Meal Kit to help with packing lunches and eating well. And over at Countryside Magazine, you have a chance to win a water bath canner and a Fillmore Container gift card.
Peach Mostarda. This tangy, slightly spicy condiment is wonderful with cheese or cured meats. I’ve also used it as a component in braised chicken thighs, to very good results.
My Low Sugar Spiced Peach Jam is a winner for anyone looking to capture the flavor of summer without bogging down their jam with buckets of sugar. It’s a classic and is delicious on a nut or seed butter sandwich.
This Plum Cardamom Jam works beautifully with the late summer Italian prune plums that I’m seeing in the markets these days and a jar makes a very nice holiday gift. And speaking of plums, these pickled slices are awfully good as well.
So, those are my suggestions. Now it’s your turn. Tell me what you’re preserving this weekend!
