So, yesterday after I got back from the bees, I spent the whole day working on those boxes. I made my Basil Simmer Sauce... and only ended up with about 10 pints after it all cooked down. Not very time or cost effective, considering the same amount of Ragu would have cost about half that... but I love how it tastes. Ragu is actually one of the few 'processed' foods that I still buy... it has 5 ingredients that are 'real' food and there's no way I could make enough sauce for our family. This batch will be used judiciously for special occasions!
I will be spending this afternoon and all day tomorrow at the Spring meeting of the Virginia State Beekeepers Association. I'm looking forward to learning all sorts of new things, and especially tomorrow/s session on Top-Bar Beekeeping by Wyatt Mangum.
