Food processing season is upon us. Lately, I've been making pesto, dehydrating and freezing peaches, and freezing chopped okra. Yesterday I attempted sun-dried tomatoes in the Tulsi Sun Oven and baked banana bread in the Global Sun Oven. The sun-dried tomatoes didn't dry quite evenly, so I popped them in the Sun-Oven-cooked ratatouille for dinner (delicious). Those Sun Ovens came through for me yesterday!
But getting to my point: I don't necessarily like spending hours in the kitchen chopping and processing food by myself. I'd much rather be reading a book or taking a walk or cruising the Internet. Luckily, I've discovered a solution that makes food preservation much easier, virtually painless, almost....enjoyable?
It's simple. My solution is: listening to Peak Moment Television while I work. I like to hear about positive actions that people all over the country and world are implementing: permaculture, urban homesteading, and building community, and I enjoy listening to interviews with our beloved peak oil authors and activists. Time, which might otherwise crawl or limp, just flies by. And I feel rather virtuous for accomplishing something rather than just sitting in front of the computer. So go on - get started on that applesauce, tomato canning, or pesto! Peak Moment TV is standing by to keep you entertained during your labors.
