Swap your homemade and home grown foods

SHARE Swap your homemade and home grown foods

Trade your homemade foodstuffs with others on Sunday.  |  Chandler West/For Sun-Times Media 

Did you put up one too many jars of strawberry jam or pasta sauce?

Well, here’s a way to share your bounty by trading it for something else homemade and/or home grown.

The Fearless Food Kitchen will hold the Chicago Food Swap from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16, at its home in the Broadway Armory, 5917 N. Broadway.

Bring your extra canned goods or homemade treats that day and swap them. No money changes hands.

There is a $5 fee and you must RSVP to participate. Do that here.

The Fearless Food Kitchen is an offshoot of the well-regarded Peterson Garden Project. This not-for-profit organization’s main goal is to inspire as many as possible to grow their own food. The kitchen always has been a dream, and now it’s a reality. There are a number of classes going on soon, including those on hot water canning (good for holiday gifts), DIY gourmet mustard, homemade pie crusts and gingerbread house construction.
