Honeyed Rhubarb Jam

June 5, 2013


Dang, it’s been awhile. What can I say? I’ve been up to my ears in work (at the farm, at the other farm, at the restaurant, at home), and there is no such thing as a day off around here, right now, at least. But according to my observation of the most accomplished and seemingly-fulfilled […]

Italian Plum Jam

August 19, 2012


With a full “day off” ahead of me- gardening at the farm and in my tiny (and sorely neglected) GROW plot, and seeing the one and only John Prine perform later tonight- I’m going to (try to) keep this one on the short side. I’ve been holding out for bulk-priced plums for what has felt […]

Blueberry Jam

July 14, 2012


Hot damn! It’s the middle of July and I can’t seem to figure out where all the time went. With this year’s wacky weather, most crops in New England are a solid week to two weeks ahead of their normal harvest schedule. Despite this (kind of) unexpected shift in availability and my ever-changing agenda, I […]

Two Day Strawberry Jam (with a side of contemplation)

June 18, 2012


First, the contemplation: *** It’s been over two and a half years since I took anything even close to a vacation.

Dried Rhubarb

May 29, 2012


Rhubarb is one of those heralds of the harvest season in the Northeast. Technically a vegetable but often featured in dessert preparations, it’s typically preserved via canning (stewed, jammed) or freezing. But I’ve been waiting long and hard to get some of these stems dried up. So when I brought home my second armload of […]

Rhubarb Jam

May 21, 2012


My, my, my. This poor neglected blog. It feels like it’s been forever since I made a post, because it is partially the truth of the situation. The past three weeks (well, month, really) have been mighty busy around these here parts. There were academic projects to be completed, a third diploma to be received […]

Cupboard Tart

May 7, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog: As you may have noticed, I try to keep things pretty healthy on the farm blog. After all, Waltham Fields is primarily a vegetable farm, and just about everyone could use more of this food group in their lives. But many of those keen to consume a “locavore” or […]
