It's 2016

2016 kick off

Well all it's 2016 and so to kick it off I'm gong to be bringing you details on home wine making, beer and hard cider.  I'm still working on this and although simple I've drank better ;)

I also have challenges ahead of me such as "better smoking, grilling and the BRAND new the art of 


 There is no need for anyone to go hungry there is always something out there even in the dead of winter!  Grow YOUR Own!  Our ancestors done so and so can "YOU"!

 Go fishing, hunting and foraging with Chef Jason, we're gong to take into the wild and we're going to cook up some delicious dishes that although take a lot of work, wield serious rewards.

from Mitake to Deer necks, from kung pao chicken to the best soup beans you'll ever eat, from corn bread to sour dough, from wine to beer, let's just say it's going to be a good "YEAR".

Remember "You grow it, you hunt it, you find it, you harvest it, "YOU" cook it. 



"This is the path to truly good food".

 Till then,

A day of canning and starting hard apple cider

  A day of canning pickled goodies and Hard Cider

It's that time of year  when I break out the canning supplies and save as many veggies as I can.

My preference is pickled veggies of any kind so I made Sour Kraut, Pickled Green Tomatoes, garlic dill pickles and Mixed pickles vegetables which we call "CHOW CHOW".

Remember when canning that organization is the key to not driving yourself insane with a huge mess. 

I also put up a gallon of Mulled Hard Apple Cider which should be ready by New Years Eve :)

Till Next Time,

3 bean - sweet potato chili

This is a great fall dish to warm up your insides.  The hearty pinto, black and lima beans along with chunks of sweet potato make this a very hearty, filling vegetarian chili.  The heat and smokiness from the chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce will warm you right up.  Great tasting easy dish for the fall :)

The Joys of growing your own herb garden

The Joys of growing your own herb garden

Growing your own herbs is fun, it saves money at the grocery and quality of the heirloom herbs is way superior to what you buy in the store.  Three leaves of my flat Italian parsley will literally fill your hand.  I grew Rosemary, parsley, basil, lemon grass, Thai basil, two kinds of Oregano, thyme, Cilantro, dill and sage this year and I've used except the sage and lemongrass which will come in handy for thanksgiving and fall soups!  Consider growing your own for next year you won't regret it.
