Kitchen & Fiber Magic


Today I made bread, pasta sauce, chicken soup. I jarred up the sauerkraut that is ready for cold storage. I pickled some cauliflower. I strained the calendula oil, not without incident, but we don't need to go there. I got some beans soaking so they may ferment over the next couple days. And I finished these two little crocheted bags and have a pale green one in the works.

That's what I made today.

Your bags are very pretty. My grandmother tried to teach me to crochet and I couldn't grasp it at the time (I was a little girl at the time). I wish I had learned that skill from her!

Have a great day!

you mention putting the sauerkraut in cold storage ...the recipe I got says it can only be put in the fridge for a week. Hmm...

Herbs 'n' Chocolate ~ something is askew in your recipe. Traditional kraut was made to be kept - without refrigeration.

Here, check out what the good Sandor Katz (AKA: Sandorkraut) as to offer:
