Small-batch cooking leaves you with just enough for now
If someone were to ask you, what food is most likely to be preserved for later consumption, a good number of people would say jam. It’s that classic pantry treat, sun-ripened berries that were jarred and saved for later rainy days, but what if we told you the best jam isn’t made to be eaten later? What if we told you that you’d been doing jam all wrong for years, and the best ones are made to be eaten that weekend? This quick jam recipe will change your mind.
You won’t believe what simple jam can do!

Mastering the fundamentals helps build great gardens
The most basic step of gardening is the one that many are not properly taught, properly getting the plant into the earth. It’s not as easy as getting it out of its plastic pot and putting it into a hole. It’s one of the few times that a gardener has direct access to the plant’s roots, making it a fantastic opportunity to fertilize and inoculate the plant with mycorrhizae.
It’s time to start thinking about next spring!
