It’s been a while since I posted anything new. It’s been a busy August-September with the garden coming in, and doing some canning and freezing for the winter months. We’ve got canned tomato sauce, frozen beans (wax and green), the beets are beautiful and the carrots were better than I could have hoped. There is an assortment of pickles and even some applesauce. I took some time out to visit with friends that I don’t get to see as much as I’d like, and I’d like to thank them all for sharing the bounty of their gardens as well.
I’ve also been working on some other big changes. Yes, I’ll still be blogging and sharing my favorite recipes and exploring new dishes. But I’m excited to let everyone know that I have decided to take on a new project.
Several months ago, I began experimenting and developing a line of floral jellies with the hope of being able to market them online. It’s been an adventure, with some impressive disasters as well as some satisfying successes. So far, I’m offering four flavors: Lavender, Garden Rose, Hibiscus and Sunflower. My jellies are made from all organic ingredients and use no animal products. I will also accept special orders for jelly sweetened with stevia or honey.
As part of this new direction, Elaine in the Kitchen has moved to a new hosting site and I’ve done some redesign to set up an ecommerce page. You can find the link on the menu bar above. I hope all of you will check out the new site and the ecommerce section and hopefully do some of your holiday shopping with Elaine in the Kitchen. If you like what you see, please share a link with your friends and family. I can use all of the additional exposure, and if you have suggestions or comments please let me know what you think. ε
