East Bay Food Swap Recap

Yesterday the East Bay Food Swap hosted a great swap at the Mini Make Faire in Oakland, CA. I would liken the Mini Maker Faire to Burning Man...but for kids. Which is about as weird and cool as you're envisioning. And we'll leave it at that.

The swap was on the smaller side, but hosted a great variety of homemade goods. Like homemade cheese (wow!) and more:

  • Pickled dilly beans with garlic
  • Fresh corn tortillas
  • Salsa verde
  • Quince & Hibiscus Jam (which I devoured later that day with crackers and cream cheese)
  • Meyer Lemon Green Tea & Honey Jelly (can't wait to drop some of this on a cracker with tea)
  • Apple Butter (which is about as dark and creamy as you can get, yum!)
  • Cinnamon Apple Sauce
  • Half peaches preserved in light syrup
  • Bear Claw Bread (which is now half eaten but I am fully consumed with guilt for eating)

Big thanks to Kendra for arranging this great swap! She couldn't make it due to a cold but was there in homemade spirit!
