I think I need a bigger solar dehydrator for all this stuff that's arriving from the garden...

Frank, I'm with you on the bone broths though I make ours in crockpot since we don't have the RMH going long enough to support a pot on the barrel there.

I still have lots of Swiss chard in the garden, and when my neighbour brought me my annual treat of Boskoop apples (an historic variety from the Netherlands/Germany) I decided it was perfect time to bake it. Dough and filling takes its time, but I really liked the outcome. The recipe is for the sweet type of Tourte (with apples, raisins, nuts, eggs, swiss chard), powdered with sugar.

I also made a cream of leek soup (leeks given to us by our allotment neighbours) with croutons, and baked beets with goat cheese (beets also from the neighbours).
A very local and seasonal meal (and frugal). I enjoyed it very much, the kids more or less!
