We can in the summer and that helps a lot. We use both our own produce and produce from local farms. We also switch what we eat more of. I get a lot of veg from garden salads in the summer and from hearty soups in the winter (we make an excellent vegetable soup base when we can).

It's really easy, but it requires a little luck, as it relies on wild yeast. First thing is to get fresh pressed cider with no preservatives. It's sometimes will still work if its been pasteurized, especially if you expose it to air by pouring it between containers in an old house where cider has been made been before. We ferment ours in the gallon plastic bottles that the raw cider is sold in. (We are lucky because we know an orchard that freezes their cider and thaws it to sell all winter, but we used to just fill the bottom of our chest freezer.). Put it somewhere cool, but not freezing...a basement or back porch or even the bottom of the fridge. We usually buy a gallon per person in the house at a time time and drink a bit of it as sweet cider every once in a while to check the progress until it turns. It usually doesnt take take long...a couple weeks maybe. When it does, the bottles will bulge and the sediment will tend to settle. The cider will be sweet and has tiny bubbles and be mildly alcoholic. This is my favorite way to have it, but tastes vary. It will continue to get drier and stronger and more fizzy and clearer. We just keep drinking it as it changes. A friend buys a lot and just lets it go wild in his basement until he wants to fetch a gallon, but the yeast in our house seems too active, when we tried this it soon blew the caps off the bottles and made a sticky mess. His basement is set into a hill and has a garage door in one wall so maybe it's colder than ours. Once I also tried making applejack by freezing hard cider and pouring off the part that didn't freeze. It wasnt fizzy after that and ended up being much too dry for my taste, but did remind me of hard ciders we bought in the liquor store.

We have an indoor winter farmers market. There are a few greenhouses and hoop rows on nearby farmers that will supply greens all winter...even here in New England. Squash and apples will store. I didn't get enough tomatoes to can this year, but we are feasting on them now, along with fresh pears and raspberries. I have fresh leeks in the garden and will have potatoes and cabbages soon.. Lots of local meats available too. I never moved my spring chicks out if the basement because of predictorroblems. They are laying well and probably won't notice the change of seasons. The longer use local foods, the easier it seems to get to figure it out. I was recently on a road trip and bought sorgum Molasses from a fam in north carolina. Someone gave me pecan her sister grew and my seven year okd niece proudly presented me with chocolate peopermint tea She had grown herself. There's not a lot of grain grown here, though, and I'm GF so I usually end up buying some rice and oats. We are also setting up some cider to get hard and fizzy for a treat.

I eat lots of root vegetables from storage, canned tomatoes, and sprouts for fresh greens. But I cannot give up spinach even when it's not bearing locally. One of my favorite u-pick places has put in a hoop house so I'm hoping I can get greens of some sort from them all winter long. And I eat lots of citrus, even though those are long-traveled foods.

I eat in-season as much as possible. Other than that I tend to sleep more, it seems natural when the days are shorter. I think it keeps me healthier.

Fresh stuff during the harvesting months and not as much meat. More meats and frozen vegetables in the winter as by then my freezer is full of those things. Milk and eggs seem to be always available because somebody's cow and/or somebody's poultry are always supplying me with those sorts of fresh goodies. My ducks are slowing down but still, I always find 2 to 4 eggs out there every morning. So amazing, so wonderful, so tasty!

In my part of the world fall is coming, and fresh, tasty vegetables will soon be gone. I will particularly miss real tomatoes and peaches. My CSA has a winter share of mostly root veggies - but can't live on those alone.

I thought it might be fun to get ideas about: "How do you adjust your menus, etc. as the growing season ends in your area?"
