As I learn more about organic produce, the more I like it. There was a time when I thought "oh, geez, here's another way for the grocery to charge more for produce." But after getting to know the folks at OEFFA (Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association) I realized organic means more than just "no spray". It represents a holistic set of farming practices that protect the land, the people, and even the wildlife. I'll have more about this issue later this year, but in the meantime I'm very excited to present this new poster for Organics: Today's Victory Vegetables.
This summer I've become more interested in cooking and preparing better meals. Making food at home is just inherently healthier, it seems to me. So I decided to create a few prints that may inspire a bit more home-cooking. For this mid-year Edition I was thinking about the practice of making stock chicken broth from a roasted chicken-- one of my favorite and economical practices. We do this and use the broth for all kinds of recipes, like rice or noodle soups. And cabbage is both nutritious and versatile, showing up in cuisines around the world.
