Event Details

We thought it would be fun to have a theme for our December swaps. We will be hosting a cookie swap & recipe exchange with a holiday party to go with it!


* "Cookie" is the theme, you can interpret that anyway you want. Sweet, savory, crispy, chewy. A bar, a piece of fudge- whatever. Have fun with the theme of "cookie".

* In the hopes that we all take home a variety of items, please package your "cookies" in 4's. That way if you swap 1 or 2 dozen cookies you will be swapping for 3 or 6 different "types" of cookies. (6 sets of 4 = 24 cookies)

* Please attach a recipe with each set of cookies to swap- that way if swappers want to recreate your cookie recipe for the holidays, they will be able to. It doesn't matter if its an original recipe or from a cookbook or a blog- just reference where you got the recipe from if not original!



By "purchasing" a free ticket you agree to the following:

2) Bringing appropriate "to go" containers for all swap items.

3)  I will not bring to swap items that were canned (pressure or water-bath) In 2010. Due to food safety issues, the time has passed to swap (eat) items canned last year.

ALL items fro
m the 2011 canning season are welcome.

THANK YOU, Christina, FSC



Kelly McDermott, Cerified Midwife and her staff have warmly welcomed us into their offices at 258 Hackett Blvd. (a residental home on Hackett Blvd, 1 house in from the corner of Main St.) I think you will love the space as its a wide-open dining room, living room and kitchen.

From Scratch Club

We are a small group, living within the Capital Region (Albany, Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga Springs) striving for a sustained connection to our kitchens, our gardens and our communities by being advocates for local food, farming & home cooking.

We host two food swaps a month, in Troy & Schenectady (and sometimes Saratoga Springs), where home-cooks swap homemade foods. We also participate in monthly community outreach at various local farmers markets where we demonstrate various cooking techniques & food projects in hopes of advocating home cooking & creating.

We also host a no-pressure food book club on our Facebook page and a monthly Podcast, From Scratch Club Podcast, which features interviews with everyday people making a difference in farming, home cooking, urban farming, farmers markets, policy and food-related media. Find us on Itunes.

Lastly, we run a DIY Food Projects & Cooking School: FSC Academy. The classes offered are a variety of DIY projects from Home Dairy (soft cheeses, yogurt & butter) to bread baking to canning & preserving the harvest. We intend the classes to be affordable, accessible, low-key, fun, small-enrollment demo classes taught by the ladies and friends of FSC in a casual atmosphere, your home or at various sites around the region, including The Arts Center of the Capital Region.

The rest of the month we are on the blog, sharing stories, recipes, DIY projects, homesteading tutorials, kitchen tips & tricks and food policy news in hopes of inspiring people to jump back into the kitchen, their gardens and communities as a daily way of life regardless of income, space & time.
