My daughter Katelyn and I love dipping all kinds of food in ketchup, including tacos. Now we have one more food to dunk in that tomatoey goodness – – broccoli.

I accidentally bought 67.5 pounds of cabbage. A vendor showed me a giant box of cabbage and told me it was $10, and looking at the enormity of the box, clearly it was a good deal. I didn’t know the exact calculation until I hauled it home, weighed the cabbage, and realized I had only paid 14 cents a pound. I was exited about the deal, but then I looked at all that cabbage, and realized that was my life for the next two days. My first go to in putting up this bounty was sauerkraut.

Welcome Thanksgiving! It is my favorite holiday, surprise, surprise. I love going by myself to the store and buying food treasures for the holidays. One of the most fun things to buy are bags of cranberries. [click to continue…]

Ratatouille

Ratatouille Plated

In the past few weeks, I’ve been going to the farmer’s market a lot. My fingers still hurt from cutting corn off 100 ears. I wish I could help myself, but I just can’t resist the prices. I possibly have a produce addiction – – I just don’t know. When the vendor offers me 45 pounds of cucumbers for $10, how do I turn that down? I am really proud of myself, because I recently said “no” to 10 heads of cabbage for $5. I was going out of town, and knew I couldn’t possibly deal with that amount in such a short time. It took restraint, especially because the vendor kept pushing it, like he was a dealer of illegal substances. Because I don’t  have the fridge space or a root cellar (yet – – just watch me), I had to decline. How very painful.

Bread and Butter Pickles

Bread and Butter Pickles

I recently bought a bunch of cucumbers at the farmer’s market for 13.8 cents each. I was planning on making more dill pickles with them, till I remembered I hacked down most of my dill plant making my 7 quarts of dill pickles a couple weeks ago. I decided to make bread and butter pickles instead. The recipe makes 8 pints of pickles, but only 7 pints will fit in a standard water bath canning pot, so I just put one in the fridge. If you have never had bread and butter pickles before, they are sweet and sour. These are great!
