Putting foods by
We enjoy the process of planting, raising, and harvesting food for our dietary needs. We actually work together (in the same room, no less!) to prepare goodies for the freezer or the canning cupboard.
Our old reliable stuffed peppers are always part of the larder.
We canned beans from our garden a couple of times and did several batches of peaches.
For the beans we use a recipe that stores the beans in a brine for use in three-bean salad.
We purchased three bushels of red haven peaches that produced some 50 quarts of wonderful winter peach treats.
Our biennial pear trees produced on schedule, and we captured almost 30 jars for later use.
