I could have sworn I posted this last week. I'm a doofus. And it's almost over. :(

I have a new batch of sauerkraut going and the other cabbage will probably make its way into soup because oh man, cabbage soup is awesome. Also made more butternut squash soup, and of course will have to do another celeriac soup because that was so f'in amazing. It's been a crazy week, though, so I haven't actually cooked that much, but most everything here keeps well, so that's okay.

Meanwhile, a picture of the kale chips I made last week: (Curly kale tends to be best for really holding the topping and looking cool, but honestly any kale turns out great. This was the Russian Red from last week's share.)

This month's food swap haul! More or less left to right:

  • Cranberry Relish
  • Orange Marmalade (more like nummy candied oranges)
  • Cranberry Orange Granola
  • Pancake Mix and Apple Cider Syrup
  • Rosemary Maple Syrup Granola
  • Gingered Carrot Chutney
  • Pluot Jam
  • Thyme Syrup
  • "Peaches in the Night"

And as long as I'm posting, here's me at the press:

What's your cabbage soup recipe?

It's really a recipe as much as the general soup technique: saute things that can be sauteed, add seasoning and herbs and spices, stock, water, more things, and cook until it's soup. Sorry. :(

I'm sad to have missed the swap, but the New York Sheep and Wool festival was this weekend, and well, yarn. :)

Understandable. :) Will you be at November's, do you think? Looks like in December, there will be a cookie swap and probably no regular swap.

Neat -- I've tried making kale chips before, but they never came out very good. Maybe I should try again.

How did you make them before? I can give you my recipe (or rather, techniques.. I don't measure).

Toss kale pieces in a bowl with oil and chaat masala, bake at 350 for about 8 minutes on baking sheet. I couldn't make mine come out even -- they were burnt in some places and raw in others.
