Canning Nostalgia One Strawberry at a Time

Canning is rough work but so worth it when there is the delicious reward of summertime fruit and veggies all winter long. Check out my article about canning strawberries in Umami…a recipe too, in case you are inspired.

A simple vinaigrette is an important recipe to have in your cooking repertoire. It can be used for classic lettuce salads, chopped seasonal veggie salads (shown here), and as a marinade for meat and fish. I like this recipe because I can add any number of flavor boosters to it like garlic and fresh herbs. Most of the time I make a big batch of vinaigrette but this basic formula can also be made very easily on the fly, in the bottom of your salad bowl before you add lettuce.
