Infused and ready to go...

INFUSING: My friend Eric gave me an idea for those gorgeously scented Santa Rosa plums: infused vodka, with a liberal helping of fresh ginger. Fortunately, I picked up some ginger on sale (embarrassingly, at Safeway -- not organic but not an "at risk" food) for $1.09/lb while walking over to pick up more canning jars at Long's (talk about your $65 tomato! I spent $70 on jars yesterday and $110 on lumber for the solar dehydrator - so much for paying down the credit cards!).


I digress - I now have a half gallon mason jar full to the brim of red-purple plum and ginger vodka goodness, next to a similar jar of apricot. Seriously considering adding a ceylon cinnamon stick or a vanilla bean...

I need more lemons so I can make up an other batch of limoncello and some more lemon chutney. Dear Universe, where can I raid someone's backyard Meyer lemon tree? Even Eureka lemons would be ok...

A few weeks ago you left a comment on my blog asking how you could put a Veg Blog Search box on your blog. Well, I've finally gotten it set up so that people can copy the code and add it to their sites. If you go to Veg Blog Search Widget, you can get the code. Please let me know how/if it works if you try it.
