"My deepest vocation is to be a witness to the glimpses of God I have been allowed to catch." (Henri Nouwen)
Here is what I have preserved so far this summer:
- 1 batch 3-berry freezer jam with agave (not sweet enough)
- 2 batches watermelon pickles (about 6 pints each batch)
- 12 small jars raspberry jam (for Christmas gift-giving)
- 1 large bag frozen raspberries
- 6 jelly jars of blueberry/agave jam (many already gifted)
- 5 pints chopped tomatoes from the garden
- 3 pints canned salsa (w/tomatoes from the garden)
- 7 batches of frozen pesto (plus two batches we've already eaten and several gifted!)
- 2 batches of dried cherry tomatoes (frozen) from the garden
This is actually fresh salsa. No recipe, just tomatoes, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, red onion, cilantro and lime juice. So tasty!
I do actually have some knitting to post from some late-summer projects and hope to get to that soon. I know everyone is in back-to-school mode, and so am I with lots of class prep and Sam getting ready for his first day of preschool. But the blog will probably still be very summery for the next weeks, as I finish up preserving as much of the bounty from our garden (and the farmer's market) as I can.
