I've been happily immersed in the world of Harry Potter all weekend. Matt was kind enough to loan me his Kindle for the cause, and I was glued 'til the end. It was amazing! I know I'm behind the times, but what can I say? It took six months after graduating from college for me to even think about picking up another book.
But Harry Potter isn't my Show and Tell. It's just my reason for sharing something kind of quick and random this Monday. Here's a glimpse at our pantry:
A couple of weeks ago, I took some photographs of the foods we were able to preserve over the summer. We're fairly new to the world of homemade pickles and jams, this being our second year, but the turnout was very good. It's definitely a lot of hard work, from harvesting the fruit/vegetables, to hours and hours spent over the stove, but it's so rewarding. Especially in the middle of winter when there's homemade apple butter on toast, or snacks with homemade pickles, cheese, and crackers.
My only regret is that we didn't make more. It's always a little sad to see the last jar go.
