Food Swaps Get a Shout Out in USA Today!

Our swappin' sisters on Facebook alerted us that USA Today recently posted an article about Making the Most of Summer Produce. Tip #4 is take it to a swap, and they specifically mention the food swaps page on the Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking, so kudos to Kate!

We're all for canning, cooking, juicing, swapping, and donating, but there are a few other options that USA Today didn't mention. Whenever I have extra fruit, I lurve freezing it for smoothies. Haven't tried making fruit-infused vodka, but it's on my to-do list. If you have a surplus of veggies, you might turn it into soup or gazpacho and freeze leftovers of that. And if you own a dehydrator, you could go crazy dehydrating fruit for trail mix or sprinkle it on cereal. Yum!

What about you? How do you use extra produce?

Be sure to sign up for the next Boston Food Swap on September 18. We can't wait to see your delicious seasonal creations!
