Links: Rosehips, Muffins, and Winners

January 17

I feel like my biggest accomplishment this week was making a small pot of chicken stew entirely out of things I already possessed. It included two different half jars of salsa that were taking up space in the fridge, the last jar of black beans from this project, and half a bag of withered kale. We ate it topped with cheese and were happy. Now, some links.

purple pints and quarts

Wow. You guys are really excited about the purple jars that Ball Canning is releasing this year! The two winners of my giveaway were #368/Denise and #1033/Barbara Logan. Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter! I hope you all have purple jars in your life soon!

Links: Marmalade, Soups, and a Winner

A quart of warm Meyer lemon water in one of the new purple jars from Ball Canning. Such a good way to stay warm and hydrated.

This last week was a nice, quiet one. I’ve been plugging away at the next book (natural sweeteners!), preserving 10 pounds of meyer lemons from the Lemon Ladies, and drinking a ton of water (cold weather makes me thirsty). No complaints here! Now, for links about marmalade, soups, and the occasional pickle.

Fresh & Fermented cover | Food in Jars

A couple weeks ago, offered up a copy of Fresh and Fermented for giveaway and then never posted the winner. Oops. The winner is #253/Matt.

January 1

Oh friends, what a nice holiday it’s been. I spent a week in Austin over Christmas, and then came home to a husband who was off from work until January 5. We’ve slept late, gone for some long, wandering city hikes, and did a little cleaning up and clearing out (six big bags went to Goodwill today!). Now it’s time to get my brain back into work and this blog. Let’s start with some links!

NewWest paring knife

I also realized that I never managed to select a winner in the New West Knife Works giveaway I hosted a few weeks ago (so long ago!). Random.com declares it to be #201/Michelle.

I've got three different ferments going on in this lunch!

Every Sunday night, I sit down to write up these links and marvel at the fact that a whole week has passed. The pace at which time passes leaves me absolutely dizzy. This weekend flew by in a whirl of grocery shopping, holiday errands, and Ikea trips (my mother-in-law moved to an apartment just 15 minutes away from us last week and as it goes with any move, she needed things to make the new space work for her). It was close to 8 pm when we returned home from assembling her new furniture. Never in my life have I been more grateful for take-out burritos. Now, links!

Links: Thumbprint Cookies, Hard Cider, and Winners

Leftover waffles with peanut butter and pear vanilla jam. Black tea with milk. Clementines.

On Saturday, I realized with a start that I’ve been focusing on the work of the holiday season instead of the joy. So, to remedy that, Scott and I spent an hour time wandering Philly’s Christmas village (even in the constant drizzle, it was nice) and in the evening, we attended a holiday party that friends have been throwing for nearly a decade now. Last night, I took advantage of Scott’s absence (he’s off helping his mom get ready to move) and wrapped some gifts to tuck under our (undecorated) tree. Now, links!

The winners in last week’s Spice Ratchet Blossom Trivet giveaway are…

For those of you who were wondering who won that bundle of books I was giving away a couple weeks ago, it was#380/Tina. I posted the winner at the bottom of the post because I didn’t manage to do a link round-up last weekend.

Cool vintage jars! If only I had more space!

Last week was the first seven-day period since March when I didn’t have to drive 60+ miles or do a canning demonstration. It was glorious. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love sharing my excitement around food preservation and getting to meet you guys when I’m out and about. I’ve just also found that in order to maintain my appreciation for this work I do, I need some time off from it on occasion. Now, links!
