World Swap Day & Edible Boston: January Swap Recap
Sunday was a day of firsts! It was our first swap of 2012, and our first magazine shoot. Edible Boston returned to take some photos for their piece on us that will run in the spring issue. We get all shaky just thinking about it! Here is Tricia posing with her pickled turnips. Our swappers were great sports about getting their "before"(what they brought) and "after" (their hauls) shots taken. It was so much fun!
In the swap world, it was a big weekend. Saturday was both the 2nd World Swap Day and the 6th National Soup Swap Day. We celebrated with lots of soup and lots of swapping!
We had lots of tasty jams, jellies, and preserves, including some unique flavors to top your toast. Clockwise from top: Mulled wine jelly and mandarin jam; concord grape jelly, mulled cider jelly, boozy apricot whiskey jam and quince candied ginger jam.
Some other cool creations included dukkah, an Egyptian spice mixture made with nuts, a S'mores kit, and steamed chestnut bread. Check out all of the photos in our Facebook album.
Thanks to all the awesome swappers who came to celebrate with us, and thanks again to Edible Boston!
Our next swap will be on February 12, from 2pm-5pm at Space with a Soul. RSVP on the right!
