I love everything about fall; the bright days, the nip in the air, the smell of my neighbours wood fire burning in their stoves and the produce! Pumpkins, squashes, cranberries, apples, quinces, garlic and more. Fall is the signal to slow down and enjoy these last few days before the snow falls. Uncanny has been hard at work to capture the best of this late season and is excited to show case all of this preserved goodness, but it is with sadness that this is the last market day for us. I have found tremendous enjoyment in being a member of the Sackville Farmers Market and the friendships I have made.
I will use these last few weeks before the anticipated arrival of my uncanny babe to gather my own provisions and feather my nest. I know I can rest easily that amongst the joy and chaos surrounding the arrival of a new baby, my pantry is well stocked, the freezer is stocked with pounds of frozen fruit and vegetables and Mr. Uncanny has kept us in good supplies of homemade libations that will warm our hearts when the weather chills.
I look forward to focusing on my growing family, resting and rejoicing in their love over the winter and don’t intend on doing any canning to sell over the winter or spring months. I love the interaction and community in the Facebook group, Twitter and this blog and intend to keep sharing ways to enjoy preserves, how to cook and enjoy local foods and passing along my successful experiments on preserves. I would love feedback if there are ways to make this blog or the Facebook group more enjoyable.
In the meantime, I present the last of my preserves, just in time for the Sackville Fall Fair
