Honeyed Rhubarb Jam

June 5, 2013

Dang, it’s been awhile. What can I say? I’ve been up to my ears in work (at the farm, at the other farm, at the restaurant, at home), and there is no such thing as a day off around here, right now, at least. But according to my observation of the most accomplished and seemingly-fulfilled […]

In doing so, I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be healthy, and how so many, regardless […]

Guide to Joining a CSA

February 3, 2013

As a workshare receiving produce for volunteer work at a CSA-based farm in my city, I find it hard to tell anyone to NOT join a CSA, an acronym for Community Supported Agriculture (a business model in which shareholders pay in advance for a produce “share” they receive in installments over the growing season or […]

Honeyed Mandarin Orange Marmalade

February 1, 2013

My first 2013 canned preserve will likely be my last at my current residence. Bittersweet, I know… just like this beauty of a fruit spread. The lower-sugar mandarin orange marmalade utilizes the whole fruit for its hidden pectin, incredible flavor, and bright hue. Honeyed Mandarin Orange Marmalade Yields about 7¬†half-pints Ingredients: about 4 lbs mandarin […]
