I made another big batch of roasted eggplant & tomato sauce (which, btw, was AMAZING on pizza). Last week I also did some canning: summer squash relish and ginger bourbon peaches. The syrup from the peaches has been making amazing sodas since then. Nomnomnom. The blueberry shrub I made (using the whole berry, no straining, yay!) is also f'in yum.

In other food news, I also made chocolate syrup (as well as cookie-pi) for Pi-Con. As you may know, making chocolate syrup is absurdly simple and the result is so good. Give it a try.

And since I've been so slackful about posting and haven't mentioned the food swap, I'll mention it here. I went to a fabulous food swap! I traded away assorted homemade goodies of mine for those made by others.

More or less left-to-right, I got sourdough starter, sourdough bread, red currant shrub, fennel & onion jam, sweet pickles cherries, tamarind balls, ginger tamarind balls, "creamsicle" (aka orange-vanilla) syrup, bagels, and blueberry hot sauce. Everything I brought was over-subscribed, which was also a nice feeling. I can't wait to do this again. Meanwhile, if anyone who does their own food things (doesn't have to be canned -- fresh, frozen, whatever is fine, too) wants to do any private swaps, let me know.
