  • I planted our cherry tree in 2003. It took four years to bear fruit but since then has produced sweet, juicy cherries summer after summer. I’m pretty sure I spent only $17 on the tree. In today’s dollars, that works out to 2 pounds of fresh cherries. . We usually freeze lots of these cherries after pitting them. Swipe to see my homemade cherry pitting tool that I made out of an inexpensive fork. I’m possibly irrationally proud it this little tool. Several years ago, my daughter had bought a flimsy cherry pitter at the store, and while she returned that at my request, I made an indestructible tool that cost me nothing. . Link in profile for pitting and freezing cherries. It’s a short season so enjoy it while you can!

  • Im very excited about the recipe Ive been working on this weekend: sourdough potato bread. Im about to bake this boule and work on another iteration. Ive been using the water I boiled the potatoes in as the liquid to bake a no-waste loaf. The flavor of the first loaf was amazing (so no food waste because we eat every crumb 😋). Ill post the recipe once I have tested it thoroughly. . I also have compiled my most popular and useful sourdough recipes and posts into one page on my blog so people don’t have to search around for stuff. Link in profile for that. . I hope you’re all doing well 🤗

  • Bulk bins in action. . I’m now hunkered down in a different city during my extended stay up here in Canada. Earlier this week, I stumbled upon some gravity bulk bins that are open for business at @goodnessme_naturalfoodmarket in Guelph, Ontario (the scoop bins are closed for now). Customers cannot use their own jars or bags for the gravity bins but the store does provide brown paper bags (at this location at least...I don’t know about other locations). . What is the bulk situation in your city? Please let others know where they can still shop for bulk these days. Some stores have closed all their bulk bins and others are doing curbside pickup in returnable jars. . Link in profile for ideas on reducing pandemic plastic. . Wishing you all a happy, healthy weekend 😊😘

  • Well before the pandemic, Big Oil had pumped billions of dollars into plastics manufacturing. Faced with more competition from renewable energy sources and dwindling demand for its products, the industry hopes to make up for these losses by pushing more plastic (which is made from fossil fuels). And now, even lower demand for fossil fuels due to the pandemic—travel has ground to a halt, for example—will make plastics appear more attractive to Chevron et al. . Meanwhile, the plastics industry has been busily trying to convince the public that plastic is safer than disposables and has lobbied governments to overturn plastic bag bans. In reality, Covid-19 lives longer on plastic (up to 72 hours) than other materials, such as cardboard (up to 24 hours). . Although we may not be able to shop exactly as we used to, we can still reduce our plastic footprint in many ways. Also, keep in mind that zero-waste living goes beyond the plastic packaging. It’s a whole lifestyle—a package deal. Do your best and don’t feel guilty about things you can’t control. . Link in profile for my latest blog post “12 Ways to Fight the Pandemic Plastic Push.”

  • “Bookshop.org hopes to play Rebel Alliance to Amazon’s Empire.” — The Chicago Tribune . Like other American small businesses, independent bookstores are struggling to survive during the pandemic. As of the time of this posting, @bookshop_org has raised $1,601,655.72 for indies through online sales. . When you order a book through the site and pick an indie store to support, 30 percent of the sale will go to that shop. If you choose from a list like the one I created this morning, 10 percent of the sale goes into a fund that will be distributed among Bookshop.orgs participating independent bookstores. Another 10 percent goes to the list creator (me in this case and thank you). Books are distributed by Ingram, one of the largest book wholesalers in the world. . Link in profile for my book list (so far). And please tell me what you are reading!

  • Carlsberg, Coca-Cola and Danone hope to package products in plastics made from plant-based sugars. . "The path-finder project will initially make a modest 5,000 tonnes of plastic every year using sugars from corn, wheat or beets [...] In time, Avantium plans to use plant sugars from sustainable sourced biowaste so that the rise of plant plastic does not affect the global food supply chain." . People want their Coke. But it seems like a waste to grow food crops that people could eat in order to create packaging for food-like products we dont need. Biowaste sounds better (not sure what that is). . Plastic food packaging isnt the only problem. Food that makes us sick is also a problem. .

  • . 80 percent hydration 80 percent whole wheat 20 percent all-purpose 0 percent specialty equipment . I have none of my stuff here at my mom’s but I’m still able to bake a delicious loaf. It may not look as pretty on the outside as the loaves I usually bake, but as with people, it’s what’s inside that counts. . I hope the pandemic’s blow to our obsession with unattainable cosmetic standards—be it for women, our homes, food or anything else—lasts well beyond the pandemic itself. We’re seeing more real life now online and on TV and it’s refreshing as hell. Everything about our society has to change, including our ridiculous definitions of beauty, designed to make us feel inadequate so we’ll keep shopping. . I wrote a blog post on sourdough starter FAQs and am now working on one for sourdough bread. Please post a question if you have one and I’ll try to answer it in the post. .

  • This is one of my favorite places in Northern California—Point Lobos. My daughter Charlotte and I made the short trip for her birthday at the beginning of March. Days later, I headed to Canada to see my mom, my daughter MK and my sister. I’ve been here for over two months now. I brought only a carry on bag, a SCOBY and my sourdough starter. So let’s just say I’m embracing my long-time dream of uber minimalism, if not exactly planned! . Today, my sister will drop off jars, books and some spare kitchen equipment. I can’t visit with her—she’s a doctor in a small town that had one of the first and worst outbreaks in Ontario—so we’ll just chat a little bit while physical distancing. I can’t tell you how grateful I will be to get more jars and more books. And while I miss my people and Northern California terribly, I am also grateful to be healthy and in a safe place. . What small things do you appreciate more now?

  • Happy mothers day to from me and my SCOBY, Etheldreda, mother to hundreds and hundreds of baby SCOBYs—living cultures for brewing kombucha. . My kombucha SCOBY has taken up residence not only all over her home base of the San Francisco Bay Area, but also in Germany, India, Japan and Argentina. She is now better travelled that I and Im okay with that. . You can check out where some of Etheldredas babies live on her Google Map. She’s up to 63 cities now. Link in profile.

  • This bell pepper wants you to question everything! . Yes you can can eat the pith of bell peppers. You can also eat the seeds, although they can taste bitter and you may not want them in a smooth sauce. This bell pepper will go into fried rice later today. My mom—who doesn’t have Instagram, but maybe should given her popularity in my stories!—will never know that I’ve added the pith. . Other bits of the vegetable that you can use: 🌱Cauliflower leaves: chop these up and sauté them for whatever or roast them whole 🌱Broccoli stems: peel, chop and use just like the florets 🌱Green leek tops: chop these up and use in recipes calling for onions 🌱Kale ribs: mince and sneak into soup, stir fry, sautéed whatever 🌱Potato peels: fry these up in oil with salt and pepper or bake them (I stick with organic when eating peels) 🌱Various vegetable scraps: stash them in the freezer until you have pile large enough to make a pot of broth . Cook the scraps to waste less food, reduce methane emissions caused by food decomposing in landfill and avoid the grocery store for longer periods of time.

  • Let them eat discard! . I made another cake that calls for discarded starter. This one is a carrot cake and it tastes delicious! I based it on the depression-era chocolate cake that I sourdough-ized last week. Like that one, it contains no eggs or dairy, and just simple pantry staples, plus some unfed starter. . People have been telling me on here that they have jars and jars of discard. If you’d like to produce less discard, scale down your starter to a small one and store it in the refrigerator until you want to bake bread. You’ll reduce the feeding frequency and the resulting discard. Baking lots of cake also makes a dent in your stash 😉 . My mom and I like this carrot cake even better than the chocolate sourdough cake (and we really like the chocolate one). I also came up with a quick and easy buttercream frosting recipe made with coconut butter, which I accidentally bought. I wondered why the jar of coconut oil looked a little strange when I pulled it off the shelf 🤔 After I made the frosting, I was so glad I bought the wrong thing! Plus the jar is nice and my mom has so few jars here 😨 . Link in profile for the carrot cake recipe, which links to the coconut buttercream frosting.
