Fruits of my labor
Despite last week being crazy busy, plus a weekend trip to Iowa, I did manage to get some canning done. I canned: pickles, rhubarb-orange jam, and lemon-sage wine mustard. I dried: orange cherry tomatoes, sage, coriander, parsley, thyme, and oregano. In the freezer: pesto and hanging outside to cure: garlic. Everything was from my garden or the CSA except the orange and lemon. I have also started collecting blackberries for more jam. I should have enough by the end of this week. Next year, I should also have enough raspberries and strawberries for even more jam. I hope to make more pickles, pesto, can some peaches and beer mustard, and freeze tomato sauce by the end of this season. Then I will feel ready for winter!
