Today was THE day to chip up some bananas. I purchased a massive bag at half price (due to ripeness factors), so I got to work right away preserving my haul. Banana chips are quite simple to make. You thinly slice your little friends, then put them in a dehydrator, then turn the dehydrator on, then walk away for 8 hours. At the end you are rewarded with a stash of delicious chip friends. You are now free to cannibalize your friends at will, or store them in a glass jar and visit later on. You could also use up ripe bananas by freezing them (peel them first!) then food processing them into “banana ice cream”. But lets leave that recipe for another day. Today is banana chip day, and here is how it looks:

Spring has sprung! To celebrate I made a couple of simple juices. One is grapefruit and orange, the other is carrot and beet.

Beware, gardening posts are soon to flood the blog! For now, enjoy some juice!

It’s the middle of winter, it’s cold, it’s miserable, it’s February… So here’s a very simple, honest, organic, farm raised, humble, delicious, and most importantly HOT Squash soup to get you through.

You will need:

Sea Salt (from the north Atlantic)

Ground Pepper (from non-ground peppers)

STEP 1

Arrange your ingredients in a pleasing way on top of a bread board. Board can be made from any high quality wood, must be sizeable in order to hold an honest squash.
