Community Nights

This past Friday, Community nights rescued my week!  I am not sure how your friday went, but for us it felt like we couldn't get anything done and everything was going wrong UNTIL community night.  We got so much done and had so much fun at the same time.  Community nights are really a bright and shining star in my week.  Thank you all for coming out and having fun in the kitchen with me.  It is always something to look forward to.  We will host community nights every Friday night through October from 4-8pm.

Food Preservationists

Everyone is asking about the food preservationists and when they can get tomatoes.....we decided that we needed to focus on our own production and so we needed to take a break from the food preservationists until we put up enough of our own salsa, dilly beans and pickles to get us through the long winter.  You can always call in and pick up produce at our brick and mortar in Pacific Grove.  Just call 373.GIRL

This week we are going to be pressing my absolute favorite CONCORD GRAPE JUICE and making Grape Shrub and Real Grape Juice.  (I love this juice so much that I actually pressed it while in labor with my daughter just so that the grapes would not go bad.  If I did not get it done then, it would never have been done!)

    Our son visited your area & shop.
    He bought us some pickles…..“bread & butter”.
    I ate the whole jar…absolutely the bestest EVER! I savored them, ate two a day….had to because I could have ate the whole jar.
    I am planning on coming to Monterey next week & would love to visit your shop & buy more pickles.
