Recap: September Food Swap


As we prep for our Food Day Food Swap on Sunday, let's check out the homemade creations we shared in September.

At this swap we had:

  • Vanilla sugar
  • Pumpkin butter
  • Corn relish
  • Pickled cherry bomb peppers
  • Sage blueberry muffins
  • Banana nut muffins
  • Granola
  • Thai peanut sauce
  • Corn salsa
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Strawberry black pepper jam
  • Chocolate cherry peanut butter
  • Peach ginger jam
  • Rice lentil salad
  • Preserved lemons
  • Ginger apple butter
  • Tomato basil jam
  • Pickled dilly beans
  • Kale chips
  • Quark (German fresh cheese)
  • Whole grain mustard
  • Chai vanilla caramel
  • Lemon balm vinaigrette
  • Apple cranberry jam
  • Challah



Something we saw for the first time was this curious jar labeled "NOT FOR EATING!!" We are certainly used to tasting everything at swaps, but this non-food lavender sugar scrub was a wonderful addition to the some swappers' hauls, and quite fragrant and exfoliating!

We can't wait to see what you bring to the Food Day Food Swap! Will it be cookies made from fair trade chocolate? Healthy homemade snack alternatives? Something tasty from the last harvest of your garden? We look forward to finding out!

Fill Your Plate with Recipes from BFS Attendees



The star of every Boston food swap is, indisputably, the sense of community.  Each month neighbors gather, cooking veterans and newbies alike, to share the creative inspiration and the work of great food.  For our October swap, we hope you'll share your inspiration by posting your Food Day stories to your own blogs or, if you don't have one, directly to our Food Day swap Tumblr (if you post to your own blog, you can link to the Tumblr).  In the mean time, search for culinary inspiration on the blogs of these prior attendees to food swaps and BFS events:


At future swaps, remember to include your blog address and Twitter handle on the RSVP so other swappers can follow your food adventures.  Also, blog about your swap experiences! We will share your posts on Facebook, Twitter, and right here!
