Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Not feeling too bloggy these days. More knitty and read-y, I guess it's the cool weather. I read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle last week, it is a wonderful book. I've always enjoyed Barbara Kingsolver, and this book describes the practical considerations and lofty ideals of eating food that comes from near one's home. I had the pleasure of hearing the author read from her work at Knox United Church last spring. As she said, it was probably the first time the subtleties of turkey sex had been explained from the pulpit. After reading it, I am inspired to try my hand at cheese making. Now that canning season is over I need a new pastime. I'm going to start by making yogurt with this tutorial.
