Sign Up ♥ 60 + Save ▴ Spicy Feta, Sun-dried Tomato and Rucola Crostini : eat in my kitchen. A bag of sun-dried tomatoes fell into my hands while I looked through my pantry shelves and it reminded me of the good times I had with them in summer.
With Mr. Cini at his salt pans in Gozo, in my pesto that I used as a spread on a sandwich, mixed with sage and chèvre on juicy zucchini steaks or in my spaghetti with broccoli pesto – so many nice memories! The Jam Weekend or SHF no.22 – Can you can? August 25th, 2006 It was pretty clear form the get-go that last weekend would be all about making jams and preserves.

Because it’s time for Marmalade: Part Deux: The Easier Version! Just a few days after my last marmalade endeavor, our neighbors gifted us with a big bag of lemons from their tree. We are so lucky to live in the area we do, because there are fruit trees everywhere. We don’t have any in our yard, but in the yards surrounding ours there are 6 different types of fruit growing: lemons, kiwis, pears, plums, apples and apricots!
And that’s not even counting what we have access to via our friends and family. But anyway, back to the lemons. Taunting me. Challenging me to find a marmalade recipe that would be fun to make. How to make sage jelly. Healthy Green Kitchen Ginger Lemongrass Simple Syrup. Though I try to limit the sugar in my diet, I have lately become obsessed with making homemade simple syrups.
I love infusing them with herbs from my garden…the flavor possibilities are pretty much endless, and so are the ways you can use them.

Because I’m not a mother, I can only speak of a mother’s love from a daughter’s perspective.
I am my mother’s daughter, her first-born child, to be precise, before my sister and my brother. During her ninth month of pregnancy with me, my mum experienced gestational hypertension (pregnancy-related high blood pressure), and my mother’s gynecologist advised her to have a cesarean birth instead of a natural one, so as not to raise her blood pressure any further. A date for the operation was scheduled, and on the 27th day of the eleventh month of 1985, the nurses dressed my mum in a hospital gown and wheeled her into the operating theater. My mum was very nervous, since it was her first time in labor, and probably the first time being cut open.
In the short while that she was conscious before the anesthesia kicked in, she prayed fervently to a God she wasn’t even sure existed. Habanero Nectarine Jam. Pistachio Cardamom Nutella Recipe on Food52. Cooking is more fun with friends.

How to Make Chia Seed Jam. By now, you probably already know why chia seeds are awesome. For one, these tiny, pinhead-size seeds are rich in omega-3s — and they’re incredibly high in fiber, to boot. They’re so high in fiber, in fact, that they can absorb approximately 10 times their size and weight in water. These little super-soakers develop a gelatinous coating after they’ve taken in all that liquid, which lends itself to all kinds of interesting food uses. Puddings, smoothies, and — yep — a super-easy, healthy “jam” made with just berries, a little natural sweetener, and chia seeds. Homemade Candied Ginger Recipe on Food52.
