Maybe I should call this one, my house reeks of garlic. But, that’s not particularly pleasant, unless you love garlic. This weekend finds us preserving food. Getting ready for winter. Making like the squirrels who are burying acorns (and corn). I can’t believe it when corn starts growing in the middle of my yard.
But, I digress. Today I popped off to the Glenwood Market to pick up a few things. And, when I returned, I was slow cooking and drying tomatoes. The tomatoes are winding down in the garden. I do have quite a bit of little ones, that I oven dried to make pesto.
Our theme this week for the Southern SOLE Food Challenge is preserving. I certainly am putting food away for winter. Besides the tomatoes and the pesto, I learned a trick from Lewis Orchards, at the market. Buy the buttermilk cake from Stone House Bakery. Cut it in quarters. Wrap it. Freeze it.
Take those frozen Larriland Farms strawberries. Some whipped cream. A quarter of the cake. Make summer happen in the middle of winter.
