There were jams and jellies, sauces and chutneys and pesto, beer, liqueurs, produce from urban gardens, all kinds of things pickled and fresh chantrelles picked that morning in the local forest!
And homemade challah! From another local blogger Jessica of We Gather in the Woods.
The hubs joined me, the curiosity of this event was too much for him to resist. I am really glad he came with me as he really helped during the crazy swap period as it got a little chaotic. But definitely fun chaos. He also helped in explaining some of the things I brought. I did go ahead and make a few lotions and balms....I am so glad I did as they were a big hit! I discovered too late that someone had brought home made ice cream...bummer.
Here is our loot from the night:
There are links to PDX Swappers here. The next swap is December 11th, see the info on their site. I plan to bring more potions and maybe some of my raspberry wine....and maybe my mom, she was pretty excited by the loot!
