Mozzarella, Butter and Buttermilk
Apples: dried apple slices, schnitz, Waldorf salad from the ends, Waldorf salad with tuna.
Raw cow's milk: butter (buttermilk), large ball of mozzarella
Raw goat's milk: chevre, yogurt
Dried beans: big pot of ham and bean soup with the trimmings for the Caring Place, extras for friends, freezer, and lunch yesterday; pickled bean salad. It's going to be a beany week here.
Tomatoes: (frozen plums from this summer) confit. We're addicted. And darn, it goes great with chevre, on flatbreads. That's what we had for breakfast today.
Rhubarb, strawberries and ground cherries: smooshy pie that is now officially "crumble". What the heck, it may look funny, but it still tastes great!
Note: I compost all of the leftover bits; it's amazing, but I have religiously done that all summer, and it simply disappears. My composter is only half full, and I have been diligent about composting! That soil is going to be chock-full-o nutrients. I discovered that the document shredder does a great job on brown or unprinted paper for the compost. Shredded a bunch of brown butcher paper today, and tossed it with the tomato and apple skins. Next year, my garden is going to ROCK.
