some of you may or may not know this, but i used to be involved with a lot of seasonal collections…
ok, i admit it. i still look at style.com from time to time, and of course, my garden never complains about my choice of attire when i’m tending it.
but, my interest in the seasons has certainly took a more nourishing turn over the past few years. as you may have gathered, my passion for seasonal produce has pretty much surpassed my passion for seasonal fashion.
so i thought i’d collide the two worlds and showcase each season the fruits – or vegetables – as it were, of my labor. you know, what i’ve preserved; the collection from which i will serve in the coming months.
yeah i know it’s backwards, we’re done with the spring/summer 2010 season and in the world of fashion it’s 6 months ahead. but my hope is that over time, these collections will act as an organizing tool and resource for all kinds of seasonal preserving.
and i’m not worried about them going outta style, ’cause you know what they say…
fierceness is always in fashion.
tigress’ spring/summer 2010 collection
each category listed chronologically by date of preservation
rhubarb lavender jam
golden jelly (gooseberry)
tellecheri strawberry preserves
smokin’ strawberry preserves
lemon squash jam
nectarine preserves with summer savory & white pepper
whole heirloom tomatoes
curried green zebras (tomatoes)
plum noir jam
sweet tomato ketchup
whole paste tomatoes
red & yellow onions
i always have grand(iose) preservation plans. but without fail, there’s a thing or two that prevents me from doing all – or even most (this summer) of what i originally planned. or posting about it all, so if you see something of interest without a corresponding post, please, ask about it!
…and if you like my style stay tuned, ’cause the fall/winter 2010-11 collectionis underway and previews are about to begin!
how about yours?
