jambaloney found these pork shoulders on sale last year and got us a bunch of them! even though they are cheaper cuts of meat, if basted properly and cooked very slowly - they come out tasting divine! i use a maple/mustard glaze and it is really good!
here's some love on a plate - the ham shoulder, our home-grown roasted potatoes, our own swiss chard and our friend D's apples!
we have been eating our friend D's apples every single day - we love those apples! of course, after you eat ham, hot ham sandwiches, cold ham sandwiches and snack on ham and apples all day for a few days....it's time to make home-made ham and beans - yummeh!
here's another meatpie that we made and ate in one day - we love our meatpie around here!
another favourite supper is veggie shis-kebabs on rice. i put some olive oil in a big bowl, add salt and pepper, cumin, turmeric, cayenne and fresh-squeezed garlic and then chop up all of the veg and let them marinate for hours in the oil, constantly stirring them. it's a delicious marinade and some of it dribbles onto jambaloney's perfect rice - yummeh!
oh ya - CRANBERRIES! we have been getting cranberries from a variety of places over the past few years - can you believe that we found some growing down at our own riverfront?!?!?!?!?
the above pic is me laying in the wet grass looking for cranberries. can you say SCORE? oh i think that you can!
look at these babies!
growing right on our land?!?!?!?! that means we now have raspberries, blackberries, blueberries AND cranberries growing right on our land!!! can you say anti-oxidants!!! oh we are thrilled!
the pic above is a ginormac, cleaned kitty-litter bucket and the cranberries are about three inches deep! we were only picking for about 25mins and got that many. we plan on going down tomorrow and picking all of the rest. we are just way too thrilled to find cranberries on our land - woohoo for us!
