Strawberry Lime Basil Pork Tacos

Can we make Taco Friday a thing?? We’ve got the most delicious taco recipe for you to make this weekend with your Strawberry Lime Basil jam (have you heard, strawberry season is almost over so it’s time to stock up)!

We cooked jam with pork for a sweet and savory meat and layered on all kinds of fresh toppings including our Taqueria Carrots and the jalapeños we pickled the other day (did you see the blog). Read below to get the deets!

It may be sweaty and hot out still, but we’re channeling as many Fall vibes as we can! Nothing reminds us of Fall more than Caramel Apple jam. Add a little whiskey and homemade fermented wild ginger soda, and you’ve got a warming, spicy cocktail on your hands!

You may remember our Wild Fermented Soda blog from a couple months ago. We loved our peach scrap soda so much, we knew we wanted a new flavor for fall. Enter in: ginger fermented wild soda. Read on to see how to make our spritzer AND fermented ginger soda! Cheers!
