Kitchen Tips

Homesteader kitchens tend to be busy places, we’ve usually got a lot going on in the garden or the nest boxes and it’s even more tragic to throw away food when you’ve grown it yourself.

However, we also tend to be really busy people with a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it. In my experience food the kitchens of homesteady-types tend to be be rustic, simple and really, really good.

I needed a place to corral all of my non-recipe food posts, things that focus more on kitchen technique, cooking basics and the tools I need to keep myself sane when I’m trying to cook 56 pounds of apples before they rot.
