Still deep in winter here in Ripton. Town Meeting has come and gone and still we haven't tapped our maple trees. This morning it was -17° when we got up, and though the sun is bright, it is still below freezing.
I have been lax in posting new items in my blog, Roots and Leaves. I am working on a new book -- and not finding much in the way of spare time. The book has a working title of Kitchen Skills for the Backyard Homesteader and I have been having fun exloring baking and cooking with animal fats, working with sourdough, extending my knowledge of weird cuts of meat (beef heart, lamb's tongue), making liqueurs -- all sorts of things that I will be sharing soon.
In the mean time, stay warm and thanks for stopping by!
