Getting Pickled!

Do you like to eat? (or do you need a last minute hostess gift?)
Try some of these canned treats by artist JEN SMITH.  
Re-interpreting a tradition of her grandmother's, she expertly blends vernacular spices with seasonal fruits and vegetables, (many from the trees around us) in perfect harmony.  

Here's what's on the menu:

loquat chutney (top off a grilled meat)
bread & butter pickles (put it on a sandwich)
dill spears (no brainer)
pickled cactus (along side a soft cheese)
curried cauliflower (exotic!)
pickled golden beets (don't need a thing)
loquat compote (on some ice cream)
lady marmalade with meyer's lemons (on your toast for breakfast)

Large jars- $10
Small jars- $7

Some incredible works by CAROL NEVITT.

Raku ware (a Japanese pottery style used for traditional tea ceremony.  The firing temperature and short glazing process make for the unpredictable and cracked surface treatment.)
