Puttin’ Up

Pantry Raid

All summer long I felt like I was hardly getting any canning done, but now, looking at my shelves, my heart is as full as my pantry. #canning #putuporshutup #growyourown #preservation #pantry A post shared by Heather Arndt Anderson (@heatherarndtanderson) on Oct 3, 2017 at […]

Bacon is My Jam

This decadent stuff is super easy to make. Just brown like a half a pound of bacon in a pan, then pour off most of the grease. Return the dirty, greasy pan to medium-low heat, and slowly cook a half a small chopped onion, a […]

Greengage

Greengages are an old plum that came to England from France, where they were called Reine Claude. In Germany, where they are much relished, they’re called Reneklode. “[W]hen quality alone is considered,” wrote nineteenth-century horticulturist Charles Mason Hovey, “the Green Gage must carry off the […]

Chocolate Chip-Marmalade Bread

Baked a loaf of my favorite chocolate chip-marmalade bread for this rainy spring day.

Rhubarb-Purple Carrot Marmalade

Was inspired during a conversation with @plumtreejam about rhubarb last week; my wheels got spinning about carrot marmalade and things of that springtime ilk, and I crafted a small (seven ha'pint) batch of rhubarb-purple carrot marmalade with ginger (orange and lemon zest/juice for extra acidity). […]

Toddy Marmalade

I haven’t tried this recipe, but boiling the rinds in a few changes of water reduced the pectin along with the bitterness, which is why Mr. Bradley recommends adding the high-pectin pulp of Golden Pippins (apples) back in. By the time this recipe was published […]

Roasted Salsa Verde

I love salsa verde. Throw it into a pot with a pork shoulder and you’ve got chili verde, ready for stuffing peppers or enchiladas. Mix it with crème fraîche and use it as a sauce for grilled fish. Or just eat it in a warm tortilla […]

Homemade Labneh

A month or so ago, I did a cooking demo for Stonyfield yogurt, and ended up with 4 quarts of plain, nonfat Greek yogurt, with an aggressively impending expiration date. At first I tried just slipping it into everything: burritos! salad dressing! cornbread! But eventually […]

Sweet onion pickles

Just a quickie post this time, because it’s canning season again, and I’m getting busy. My season starts with strawberries and other lovelies from California (mostly just halving and freezing to buy sweet time), but it’s also a great time for pickling the early birds. […]
