|Snow Peas for dinner|
Recently I took inventory of my preserves and realized that I had put up enough preserves to get us through the cold seasons. I thought for sure we would run out after I had given away so many Christmas gifts of strawberry, blueberry and blackberry preserves. I hadn't realized what unfamiliar territory it was for most people to grow and preserve their own food until I started to give mine away. I notice when I give people a gift I grew, picked and preserved myself they look at me like I'm either a genius or possibly a crazy person. No matter which there is always plenty of gratitude for the treat. But, the gratitude isn't why I do this crazy stuff, it is the sense of connectedness and the thrill I feel when supplying my family and others with the fruits of my labors.
