We spent a lot of time away this October – half of the month, really – so I followed our tips for real food on the road – hitting up farmers markets, checking trip advisor, cooking as much in advance. We’ll be leaving for half of November, too.
what I loved this October:
- Visiting farm after farm for my upcoming cookbook (Yes, It’s still a long way away of being in your hands.)
- Seeing this endangered variety of heritage pig – the Gloucestershire Old Spot at a farm in Paonia. They’re beautiful, aren’t they?
- We’ve got a glut of horseradish, hot peppers, garlic and onion from our CSA so I’m planning to make master tonic soon.
- This take on the cure for the common cold and real vitamin C.
- Subsequently stocking up on acerola powder and cod liver oil (I get both here), homemade bouillon and herbs for homemade remedies.
- I enjoyed this take on why cholesterol is actually an antioxidant, and then I ate more butter.
- I’ve got my eye on making these homemade fruit snacks and almond meal muffins for our upcoming road trip to California for the Wise Traditions Conference.
- I’ll be speaking on social media and also baking a ton of crackers for the Farm-to-consumer Legal Defense Fund Harvest Dinner from my favorite grain: einkorn wheat (you can get it here).
- Scouring the internet for wintery recipes like this oxtail stew and vegetable soup.
- For tonight, I’m planning to serve not only Honey Caramel Apples and chocolate macaroons, but also raw milk egg nog or traditional wassail.
- Of course I’ll make cranberry apple cider for the little ones.
- I’m so going to make these homemade marshmallows, only I plan to add real marshmallow root to mine. (I get it here.)
- And, lastly, re-reading the Forgotten Skills of Cooking – one of my favorite cookbooks.
