Enjoying and preserving some of this summer’s bounty
September 11, 2018
I have been busy busy busy this summer trying to use as much of our fruits and vegetables.
We have lots of fruit trees on our homestead – apples, pears, plums, a couple of cherry trees, and more apples! 🙂 In our garden, we had zucchini, TONS of cucumbers, green beans, carrots, sugar snap peas, onions, lots of herbs, and tomatoes. And we have blackberry bushes, too!
I learned how to do some canning last year – I did pears in syrup, and apple pie filling, and some jam. This year, I borrowed a dehydrator and have been dehydrating the heck out of things like plums and apples and pears, and I dried rosemary and oregano, too.
Every year, it’s my goal to use as much of the fruit and veggies as possible! I get better every year!
