New Classes

Wow, I can’t believe it is mid February. Time moves fast around here at ” The Farm .”  So much has been done. It is  hard to sit inside and work on the computer. I have been waiting for a rainy day. It has not rained in weeks and we don’t have any coming in the near future. This is why you haven’t heard from me in a while. The garden is coming along nicely. We have three more fruit trees: Peach, Plum, and Nectarine. We have blackberries, blueberries and the raspberries are waiting for the bed to be made. We have something to eat out of the garden every day. I have seeds starting to germinate inside and waiting for the weather to warm up to be planted. Please check out the up coming classes on the page called ” Up coming Classes 2018. ” Come and enjoy a class and a tour of the garden. I’m sure we will be eating something from the garden for  lunch.  All In A Jar is very fortunate that ” The Kitchen “, the gourmet Ace Hardware store in Alamo has asked me back for a few classes.

I  look forward to having you and a friend  here at ” The Farm.”

See you in class

This Lacto-Fermented Cabbage is what Sauerkraut is. So don’t be fool by unhealthy supermarket pickles versions of homemade fermented foods. These modern foods are the product of high heat and pressure which destroys nutrients and do not in any way enhance health. The exception to this rule are the various fermented foods in the refrigerator section in health food stores. The drawback is that these gourmet items are rather expensive compared to the pennies per ounce it cost to make at home. Having fermented foods in your life helps with your digestion. You are making your probiotic. Come and join us on March 12th Wednesday at 6:00pm to make this wonderful fermented food. We will be making  Meyer Lemon Jelly too, it wonderful in crepes, vinaigrette and in a cocktails.  A yummy snack will be served from All In A Jar’s pantry . You will go home with a jar of each recipe we make and the recipes and the ” How To Start” will be emailed to you. Trying to be green.  Much more to come about Fermented Foods. So check the class calendar, we will be adding more fermented class .
