Preserving Summer

No, I haven’t fallen off the planet. A busy August-September has kept me from spending much time in blogging mode. Instead, one of the things that’s filled my time is preserving summer.

Summer produce is in full bounty and I’m trying to preserve as much of it as possible.

So far in the freezer are blueberries, peaches, pesto, cubes of basil and parsley, cooked down tomatoes, and collard greens from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share from Staehly Farms.

Some of the canned goods, ‘put up’ as Gram used to say, so far.

My sister sent boxes of Tattler Lids  (the white lids) to me after she tried, and likes, them. They are reusable. This is the first time I’ve tried Tattlers. So far, so good on jars of hot garlic dill pickles.

There’s still more peaches and quite a few apples … and more tomatoes … to pick and process, so garden blogging will have to wait. Hope you don’t mind.

    Way to go! Wish I knew something about canning, that looks wonderful. Know what you mean about spending time preserving right now, we freeze a lot of stuff and it’s keeping me quite busy.

      Happy freezing, Marguerite. You’ll enjoy the fruits of your labors when the growing season is over.
