I'll trade you!

Who would have thought that spicy beer mustard would have been one of the most popular items at the Alexandria Food Swap this past weekend?

Truth be told: seven or eight excited foodies left the Friendship Firehouse with 4oz jars of really the spiciest mustard I've made to date -- this time with a bottle of Great Lakes' Dortmuder Gold and balsamic vinegar -- but I made out like a bandit! Homemade pretzels, apple fruit roll-ups, a good sized bottle of amaretto (and no idea what to use it for), peach lavender jam, chocolate covered coconut and almond clusters, rosemary popover mix, rhubarb butter, a new kombucha starter, and my favorite: dehydrated fruit and seed crackers. Yum. A girl could get used to this!

Thanks to my friend, Shelu, for organizing the homemade food extravaganza (and making those divine almond joys).


  1. Thank you, thank you, and thank you for supporting the food swap! That mustard was super spicy. So yummy! You are the best!

  2. Sounds like a great time! You can use amaretto for a zillion things...make amaretto stone sours, use in truffles or trifle, add a little frostings or glazes...have fun with everything! I just love seeing what people bring home from food swaps :)


Thanks for your comment! Just making sure this isn't spam.... Thanks for your patience. :)Ibti
