Links: Cherries, Chick Pea Crackers, and Winners

It's sour cherry day! Thanks for growing such great fruit, @3springsfruit!

I’m not sure when it started, but somewhere in the last few years, I started marking the passage of summer by seasonal fruit. And so by the fruit calendar, summer is flying by (despite the fact that it only officially started today). Rhubarb and strawberries are gone and the cherries are present but they last so briefly. I’m just grateful that there’s still so much more wonderful stuff to come. Now, links.

No matter what the calendar says, summer has arrived (at least in Philadelphia). Cherries are here and I spotted the very first apricots at the farmers market on Saturday. I bought my first watermelon on Thursday and I’ve been scooping up garlic scapes everywhere I see them. This time of year makes me so darn happy. Now, links!

If you happened to see a woman carrying a flat of strawberries through Center City earlier today, chances are it was me. These beauties were from the fair food farmstand. #strawberries #localproduce

This last week was blissfully mellow. I played tourist with a dear friend who was visiting, managed to get to the bottom of my overflowing inbox, and took care of some necessary household tasks like laundry and car maintenance. I also finished a book for the first time in a couple weeks. It was good. Now, links!

Drift Away Coffee

The winner of the Driftaway Coffee giveaway is #47/Kari K. Thank you all for taking the time to enter!

Half of yesterday strawberries have become a big batch of low sugar strawberry vanilla jam. #foodinjars #strawberries #localproduce

This last weekend was a good one. On Saturday morning, I wandered my favorite farmers market and turned a flat of berries into batches of strawberry vanilla jam and strawberry butter. Annelies stayed with us on Saturday night and we went out for a unhurried brunch this morning. A few hours after she left, I picked my dear friend Andrea up at the train station. We met the very first day of college and have been close ever since. She lives in Southern California, so we don’t get to see each other often, but whenever we do, it’s as if no time has passed. Now, links!

The winners in last week’s Candy in a Jar giveaway are #33/Alicia, #86/Madeleine, and #104/Sandy. Thanks to all who shared their favorite sweet preserves!

Finally! A breakfast place that takes jam seriously! Homemade mixed berry jam! #happyjam

We spent the holiday weekend in Northampton visiting friends. We had a lovely time and I’m back feeling refreshed and ready for the summer to start picking up speed (this time of year flies by faster than any other for me). Now, links!

I did two big things last week. The first was that I co-hosted five canning videos with Nicki Sizemore for the Taste of Home Online Cooking School (I was initially super nervous but it ended up going incredibly well). The second was that I turned 36, which after the fanfare of 35 felt like a singularly anti-climactic birthday. Now I’m back to work and doing my best to make good things to share with you guys. Now, links!
