Looking Forward to Thanksgiving

Today I paid for a winter share at the CSA. We did this last year and the onions, potatoes, carrots beets, parsnips etc. lasted until the Spring. This year they have a Thanksgiving share, so I signed up for what I wanted. I signed up for a turkey (organic, local), some wild, organic cranberries, some local maple syrup, and a 'cheese' share, which will be cheese from a local maker who uses Appleton Farms milk. I didn't sign up for pies, although they sounded divine, but I can make pies from local stuff.

I"m excited to think of all this local food, but it's still hot out and I'm kind of reluctant to think about winter coming.

We found a little company on Cape Ann who is distilling vodka, gin and rum.

Cape Ann has a long tradition of distilling rum with sugar cane/molasses brought from the West Indies, which ended with the revolution.

We had excellent Nantucket vodka this year.

Need to try local wines and brandy.

Next Sunday should go a vineyard tour.

Our local goat cheese is excellent too.

The UK is winning awards with cheese, white wine and apple brandy.
