The "Wow" is that I just planted cotton, and it has grown so much so quickly! I got the seeds from the cotton gin at Slater Mills in Pawtucket. Slater Mills is where the Industrial Revolution began in The Unites States, thus it's the oldest mill in America. Today it's a museum with tons of beautiful and functional old machinery.
"Yum" is because I juiced a lot of apples, and reduced the juice to a syrup. The syrup smelled like baked apples, my favorite smell!
I used the apple syrup to make a flan, in place of caramel.
I also made fresh rice milk
and gluten-free pancakes.
