Food and drink

Too long since the last post, but I’ve been busy jammin’ and infusin’ and all sorts of things.

First of all, Aaron came and visited, and is now sitting next to me on our Porch of Wi-Fi. We’ve been doing a lot of reading (Ender’s Game [him], The Poisonwood Bible [me]) and eating our faces off. Subsequently we’ve come to know the inside of the outhouse quite well.

Today we picked onions. We look none too thrilled, but it was really fun. There was no need for quality control, as we could just yank up all those little suckers.

Tomatoes are in full bloom!

Leading to many tomato-mozzarella-basil sandwiches.

Since we have such a plethora of blueberries, I decided to infuse some gin. I found all these recipes online for different infused alcohols, so I’m going to try a bunch.

Today it’s a much darker purple, and I think it’ll be ready by tomorrow.

Jam-making also happened:

We had to throw the jars in the oven before we plunged them in the hot water, etc, to disinfect and make sure we all don’t get botulism.

I’ll have a picture of the finished jam next time. Delicious.

Tomorrow we’re going to meet up with Lucy and Paul and Caitie in Madison and go to the New Glarus Brewery!

Must leave, as have only 10 minutes left on the laptop.
