Tomato Paste WIP


to be tomato paste

bumper crop of tomatoes this year. have tried many recipes for preserving the harvest, but have decided on the simplest this year.

make paste while the sun shines.


’cause we can use it in all sorts of things during the winter (including our new favourite, LF ketchup, and B’s staple, tomato soup)


Mango Leather

box of mangoes on sale = fruit leather!  never done it… will find out how tasty it is in a few days.

LF Ketchup

thanks to the crew at GNOWFGLINS I will never go back to store bought ketchup again. totally delicious, awesome with ducks fat roasted potatoes. and I encourage K to eat this ketchup (unlike the other stuff)!  apparently lasts a few months in the fridge… not sure it’ll last us that long though.

LF Pantry


welcome to my LF brewing lab.  sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, and a root medley consisting of purple kohlrabi, radishes, carrots & daikon. should be ready in a few days for the potatoes. got diced sweet bell peppers on the go plus whole cherry tomatoes with some fresh basil, and another crop of asparagus. 

fermenty goodness all around!

now just waiting for our garden to be producing enough to use.
