Swapped Out! A post Yes We Can thank you!

A shout out to all of you who brought such amazing preserved treats to our first Yes We Can! event. It was such fun! There was an amazing variety of canned and preserved foods. Just a sampling of the items traded includes...

Pickled eggs, pickled beets, pickled watermelon rind, sweet pickles, bread and butter pickles, Spicy salsa, peach salsa, and sofrito, mad amounts of chutney... from apple ginger in multiple variations, to nectarine, persimmon, peach, and pumpkin spice, fermented delights like kimchi and sauerkraut, both sourwood, and clover honey, pesto and vegan pesto, blueberry jam, strawberry syrup, apple cider vinegar, tomato basil jam, roasted green chilies, bagged kaffir lime leaves, pickled hot peppers, dilly beans, pear butter and more!

We can't wait to try all of the goodies, or hear about E.A.T's spicy Dilly Bean Bloody Marys.

Thanks to Jason of Caramelized OpiNIONS and Mollee Sullivan for planting this seed in our heads, and for bringing such amazing canned goods! Sofrito, yeahman!

A post swap cider, planning for next year.
