Last night was the latest in a series of larder food swaps organized by Kate of Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking and Meg of BKHomesteader. The general idea is to bring extras of all of the jams, pickles, and other interesting concoctions you’ve been making and swap with other people who’ve also been toiling away making fun stuff. I brought some of the rhubarb schnapps I made this spring (will post a recipe soon, have to find my notes) and a jar of roasted, shelled gingko nuts I collected this weekend (post on that to come too) and came home with a jar of salmon rilettes made by Liza of FoodCurated and a fascinating tea blend made by Liz, who I was excited to meet after following her on twitter for a while. It’s called Vivid Visions and can be either drunk or smoked(!) The swaps are always a good time. People bring snacks, last night there was wine, and there are dozens of interesting people to chat up.
