BK Swappers latest swap!

Last week I attended BK Swappers food swap, conveniently held at Hayseed’s! I love the swaps. You get such great stuff, and the people are all so awesome. This is what I went home with –

The Diva that ate New York’s Black Pepper Strawberry Papaya Lime and Chili Jam
Butter and Salt’s Coriander Salt
– Tomato Conserve
– Spiced Guiness mustard
– 2 homemade butters – one roasted garlic and another a cilantro lime!

Here’s how it works….

You bring around 5 of something that you have made, be it preserves, beer, condiments, etc and place it on a table and fill out a sheet with a description. Then you go around and put your name on the sheets of the things that you would like to trade for, plus a few extra. Then when the swap begins, you can state your case for why someone should trade with you, and vice versa. Not only is it a wonderful way to get to know your local canners, foragers, and cooks, but it is clearly a great way to trade things you have too much of, and get some wonderful things in return. In my case, I like to trade for things I know I will never make myself, or things that just blow me away.

I traded my Cockonut Sauce which you can purchase here. And I am getting so excited to try everything! This morning I made cheese biscuits with leftover Boursin cheese and goat milk and spread some of the garlic butter on. HOLY CRAP YUM! So good I didn’t even worry about taking a great picture, though. Sorry.

And you will see everything else in upcoming post, so far it has been a really tasty week! Hope to see you at the next BK Swappers event! Here are some pictures to inspire you….

  1. Looks like so much fun! But is there any more Cocknut Sauce left? I went to Etsy and it’s sold out 😦

    I’ll come over and lick your pan for $3.50 😉

    Seriously though, let me know about the hot sauce!
