Puttin’ Up

Quince Slatko

Yesterday I made a few pints of Eastern European-style quince preserves called slatko or varenye (slatko od dunja, варенье из айвы). Look at that color! It’s a very simple recipe: just quince, sugar, water, and lemon, with a little finely minced dried cranberries for added […]

Guanciale (oh, oh)

(To the tune of “Volare”) Got my guanciale hung in the very sophisticated curing setup in my basement (the basement is 60F and 61% humidity, which isn’t too bad). Not pictured is the small, weak fan blowing a gentle breeze in the guanciale’s general direction. […]

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 […]
