Food Preservation is Cool!

Sharon May 27th, 2009

Guess what’s in the Times today?  I guess I picked the right time to write _Independence Days_!  We’re trendy (at least today ;-) )!

    Yes Sharon, but do you include instructions for assuming the “full peacock” position between canning chores? The article made me chortle and it wasn’t just the NYT smarminess.
    We dehydrated strawberries this weekend . . . my partner was extremely skeptical but he helped — asking all the while why I thought this would be worthwhile. Upon sampling the finished product, he wanted to know when we could get more strawberries.

    A little late, but my IDC update:

    Still a challenge with a healing hand but…

    Plant Something:
    Planted pole beans, squash, luffas and perennials

    Harvest Something:
    herbs and a little lettuce

    Preserve Something:
    not this week

    Reduce Waste:
    Created a list of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle tips for the office green page. Harvested a load of used printer paper to cut down and use instead of post-its in the office

    Preparation and Storage:
    Stored a water-proof supply of candles and matches in the basement storage area

    Build Community Food Systems:
    Working on a “raised bed” team at work to create and maintain an organic garden at work

    Eat the Food:
    Made a big bowl of 4-bean salad, a great way to use food storage!

    Hope you’re having a good week!
