Making Concord grape juice in my steam juicer is one of my favorite things to do every fall...and then over the winter, spring, and summer, I don’t really drink much of it. So now, I still have most of the 2016 and 2017 harvest in the pantry, but I can’t possibly let these beauties go to waste. It’s a canner’s eternal dilemma.

I’m very grateful that forever-ago past me pre-ordered this incredible book from @unladylikemedia so that it would arrive on my doorstep today. @tylerfeder ‘s illustrations alone are uh-mazing! Also I listened to not one but two podcast interviews with Rebecca Traister (Longform and The Gist with another interview on Ezra Klein’s show queued up for today) about her new book on women’s anger, and I am here for it. Good and Mad. Yas! #podcastrecs

Elderberry harvest. Throwing these in the freezer for easier, at-my-convenience de-stemming.

This place has hella good houseplants and succulents for pretty cheap. I’ve decided every time I’m sad and want to buy myself something, I’m coming here.

Obligatory Coburg Antique Fair photos. (I only bought one enamel colander this year.) #coburgantiquefair

2018 @oldbluerawhoney honey harvest is in the books! Hallelujah! We have so so much honey now. (You should buy some. It’s delicious.) #beekeeperdirect #oldbluerawhoney

Beet socca batter

Rough recipe:
2 beets, grated
2/3 cup garbanzo flour
4 eggs
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
a couple pinches of various spices (chile powder, smoked paprika, cumin, etc.) Whisk everything together. Melt some butter in a skillet. Spoon in some batter, and cook it like you would a pancake.
Doctor up the finished socca with whatever sauce you have on hand/enjoy (carrot-ginger dressing, hot sauce, pesto, Neumann’s Own caesar, etc.) and/or a fried egg.

Socca has been my go-to this summer. The batter lasts a few days in the fridge, so I cook them to order, making it a pretty complete, healthy meal that can happen real fast.

Scenes exactly the same as they were in my childhood. #ovenandearth

My nephew enjoying all that summer has to offer

Look at me making fancy lunch for myself! (Thoroughly inspired by the @localmouthful podcast discussion on nicoise Thanksgiving and @joymanning ‘s quick hummus recipe in the Washington Post.)
