“If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him…The people who give you their food give you their heart.” César Chávez
This is one of the first things that I read this morning. This is how our family lives, our hearts and bellies are full of love.
I wont get into everything about this man and what he means to me, that would take ages. What I can say is that his perseverance has inspired me since I was very young. At about 12 y.o. is when I really started to listen to the women and take in the stories of César Chávez. Of course the main thing he inspired me to do was to eat food that comes from humane and sustainable sources.

!Feliz cumpleaños Sr. Chávez! Today is César Chávez 85th birthday.
Because it is this special special man’s b-day I thought I would attempt to do some special things for my family.
A bag of assorted citrus has turned into these things and more:
*Juice for the second fermentation of Kombucha (Sangria Styled) and juice for Dandelion Wine.
*Candied citrus peels for Easter gifting.
*Citrus Vinegar for air freshener during the use of the shitterz at the Oregon Country Fair.
*The water was saved from the boil down of the peels for allergy smoothies.
*The citrus sugar water was saved for the Dandelion Wine.
Que te cuides.
Peace, love, and agrios!
*Everything made here today comes from Organic sources. Hurray!
**Recipes are due to come later.
