WOW, what a great use of all your harvested vegetables. Those look amazing, and bet they will taste great.

I hope to start canning next season. If I can get our fall garden going, I hope to start sooner. Have already started to collect supplies, cant wait.

Very impressive TRB!! I wish I had so much energy.
I've made one batch of strawberry rhubarb jam and I think 35 jars of blueberry jam. I usually make pear jam as well, but we didn't get any this year.

I'm going to try pickles today. I've cucumbers coming out the ears. I got the store bought packaged mix and don't know if it will be any good. Wonder do you have a good recipe you'd share??

I'm just starting to get peppers and tomatoes too, so I'll soon be canning in my dreams at night. Have you ever pickled peppers or corn? If so, how do you do it?

LOL, maybe you could teach us a class!!

I am so envious. I wish I had a sunny place for a huge garden and could put up the veggies.

You bet cathy! Nothing tastes better! Watch out, canning is addicting! I absolitely love canning. And you feel very rewarded when you eat what you grew in your garden and then canned it. Nothing better.

I dont have alot of energy. I just do what needs to be done. We grow alot in the spring and summer tovput food up and eat for the next year. I make my own pickle mixes most of the time. Sometimes i will ise store bought mix. You can also make cucumber salad woth them. I dont think i could teach classes. With life experience and a culinary degree, i just tend to do my own thing and somehow it works. I have pickled all kinds of veggies like cauliflower, peppers, zucchini, green beans, carrots, and okra. You can pickle just about anything. Alot of the time my experiments turn out better than recipes.
