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)
