OK, there was this weird buzzing noise in the Thanksgiving tips show we just recorded, so I wanted to share with you a show we did last year on the subject:

Rick and Eric talk about the How To Make Gravy for Thanksgiving video that Eric made with Chef Erica Wides. The price of Thanksgiving turkeys drops around the holidays, and Eric talks about why that happens. Rick asks why turkey is just a once or twice a year food. Turkeys provide an economical way to have several meals from one bird.

Eric talks about the podcasting podcast he has been listening to by Libsyn, and it ends up Eric and the Libsyn podcast host, Elsie, have a mutual friend in Natasha, who Eric knows from the food coop.

We then move on to talking about how to make gravy, and how one has to cook out the water from the stock, water and wine, then you add in the flour. One has to keep in mind that this can take longer than you think.

Rick likes the recent roof repair video Eric did using roof tar, and we point out how permanent roof tar can be when it gets on your hands or your clothes.

Eric found a new podcast, Jack's Farm Radio, that he likes. The host of the show, Daniel will be on our show soon.

Rick and Eric talk about the previous podcast about how to build a hoop house. Matt came on the show to tell us how he is building a hoop house greenhouse.

Viewer Mail and Baking Powder end the show.

Cheri from the YouTube channel Flannel Acres joins me to talk. A recent video she did on how to can grapes was interesting, as I had never thought about canning grapes.
