La Trinquelinette Strawberry Jam
Sometimes you just want a strawberry jam!
Peanut butter and jelly. Most of us grew up with it. The go to sandwich made with Wonder bread for much of our grade school life until we hit puberty and high school where cool was not a peanut butter and jelly anything.

Today we skip the bread and the combination of peanut butter and jelly, split them apart, otherwise known in hip terms as “deconstruction” and a term that is no longer cool either...

This Strawberry Jam is like what you remember and want it to be. It is worth always having on hand for the daytime and for the late night saltines, peanut butter and Fraise jam. Just like what I used to do in high school.

One of the All-Time Greats *****

"This is a wonderful jam, and I consider myself to be a "jam guy". My daughters claim I obsess on jams, and they may be right. La Trinquelinette's Strawberry Jam is sublime. Great texture. The flavor is alive. Just the right sweetness. This one I would buy by the case!"

Kitchari Recipe The Easy Basic Kitchari

This recipe is from our friend, John, who says he is not much of a cook and yet he seems to make food and bakes a killer sourdough bread.

This is, he told me, a dish you have all the time at meals when he visits his friends in India. His "recipe" is a list of ingredients with an emphasis make sure you have enough water to cook the moong dal and basmati rice.

While you cook the rice, chop your veggies and add them about half way thru the cooking of the "grains".

Zucchini, asparagus, carrots are nice to add. Brussel sprouts, yellow squash and sweet potato works too.

Then, while it is all cooking together happily heat some ghee in a pan and add the spices. Cumin, Turmeric and black mustard seeds are a good place to start. Coriander, salt, Cloves and ginger.

Lummi Island Wild Albacore Tuna Wild-Caught Canned Tuna From the Northwest

I want to tell you a wonderful fish the link below to read the story ...

Best Canned Tuna Ever *****

"I’ve tried many canned tunas, and this one is the best. It has a fresh mild flavor, with a firm flakey texture. Most canned tunas are more water than fish; a very fishy waterlogged mess in a can. This problem simply did not exist. With most canned tunas I’ve had, the only way to enjoy them is drain and squeeze out all of the water and turn it into a tuna salad. Lummi Island tuna was so good, I could enjoy it straight from the can. Lummi Island Tuna is delicious and I highly recommend it."
