I bought a book. I bought a bag of flour.
I didn't buy a big enough bag of flour.
In the past months I've been tinkering away at a few projects. First, it's harvest season and I've been putting up as much as time permits. Along with fermenting and pickling, Joy from Empire Valley Farms has lent me her food dehydrator and it has been filled several times with tomatoes, chile peppers (I'm trying to make my own chile powder/paprika), and even strawberries.
Second set of projects include cheese making. I can tell you right now unless you own a cow or a goat it isn't any less expensive to make your own versus buying from a cheesemonger or grocery store. What is different is the sense of satisfaction of knowing you made it yourself.
Third project: sourdough bread. I know how to make it awesome, I'm just trying how to figure out how to make it more than one loaf at a time awesome without having to purchase a ten thousand dollar deck oven with steam injection. Follow me...
I don't know where September went.
But I do know this weekend I will be selling my wares at Howe Family Farm Market.
If you're looking for creamy pumpkin pies prepared with warming spices, real cream, Howe's very own pie pumpkins, and handmade flaky pastry - the corner of highway #45 (John Wise Line) and Rogers Side Road is where I'll be.
9-inch pumpkin ($10), apple crumble ($15), & pecan pies ($15) will be available.
Open Saturday, October 12 from 9-6 and Sunday, October 13 from 11-?? or until I'm sold out!
Eating. Drinking. Sharing.
