Organic cuticle treatment made with locally grown cherries

Step one in the Kingsolver plan and the reason why I discovered, while raising my hand in a university meeting yesterday, that my nails are still stained such a dark purple I may have to sit on them for the rest of the week...

Good job! If it weren't so expensive to mail, I'd trade you some peach jam for some cherries.

I froze my fingers on the blueberries I preserved in freezer bags. Does that count? Or maybe the grape Kool-aid that I made for dinner and its stain left on my fingers is more my speed. Oh, maybe I will can something for real.

I gasped out loud at that picture. Is that cherry preserves? That looks DIVINE! Cherries are so expensive in this neck of the woods, I don't have enough to do anything to them other than pop them in my mouth.

I'm about to take a trip to Michigan to pick blueberries and hope to take a similar snapshot...in blue. With blue fingertips. And blue lips, too. If this is what Kingsolver inspires us to, we're all richer (and healthier) for it!

We also went to a local apple orchard and picked what was in season (Jersey Mac and Pristine), as well as some veggies they were growing in a field for U-Pick customers. We bought a head of cabbage and some sweet corn.

I'm finding more and more local options. I don't know that they are organic, but they are inexpensive and local. And the kids are delighted to be harvesting it themselves.
