I promised earlier this week that I’d been working on some rock-your-socks off recipes to post this week. Today it’s a cranberry apple jam posted on Simple Good and Tasty. Cranberry and apple have been my go-to friends this season. Â First the donuts. Â Today it’s jam. Â You can bet I’ll be making Liz’s crumble top pieÂ too. I love the combination of sweet and tangy with cinnamon swirled in. Â It reminds me of the candle section during the holidays.
Back to the jam…
Earlier this month I was given the opportunity to begin writing posts for Simple Good and Tasty, a Minnesota-based food blog focused on helping people make good food choices.Â The blog has similar themes as Minnesota Locavore (local, organic, sustainable, healthy, accessible) and the writers come from a diverse and well-rounded background. My first post on local wines went up about a week ago, and I’m hoping to have a few more done before the end of the year.
In a month centered on being thankful, I keep coming back to how grateful I am for this new venture. Serious ecstatic joy. Â It’s a chance to share/write/soap-box more about my king-sized obsession with everything local food. Â It’s a chance to meet some new foodie friends. And I get to do more of what I love: to eat good local food and then write about it.
Do me a favor and click on over to SGTÂ Â today. Â Check out my cranberry apple jam recipe and the last of my less-than-perfect canning season. Then turn your eyes towards Thursday. Â Get ready people. Â A high-quality food coma awaits us.
