I haven’t posted for a couple of months but I have been really busy with a new project. Today I opened my Etsy Shop featuring a new line of Vegetable Powders for the kitchen. I’ve been making and using vegetable powders for some time now. At first it was just a good way to use and store an over abundant garden, but I really love what the flavor of concentrated vegetable powders do for my cooking. It really brightens up soups and stews and you can add my Gourmet Mushroom Powder to rubs and marinades, or just use it like a sprinkle on seasoning. So far, I’m offering Carrot Powder, Tomato Powder, Gourmet Mushroom Powder, Super Greens Blend and a jalapeno powder that I call Green Thunder. I almost have to wear hazmat gear when I make this one.
I’ll also have a book for sale sometime this summer called Pantry Magic: Powders and Potions. I started the book before I got the idea for the store. The hardest part of doing both has turned out to be learning to take decent pictures. So, I’m excited and I’m looking forward to bringing you some great summer recipes.
The Etsy Shop is called ElaineintheKitchen. I’d encourage all of you to check it out and let me know what you think. I’ll be back with recipes next week.
