With our Fall garden growing and the weather cooling off, I am having so much fun letting the little old lady in me come take over! Yes I am still in my twenties but I love getting dirty in the garden, canning, and baking up a storm. 🙂
Our green beans and pickling cucumbers have really taken off this year! While I have enjoyed eating fresh green beans and cucumbers nearly everyday I have to say that there are more cucumbers than even this prego can eat! So, I am canning them. I chose to plant pickling cucumbers this year because:
- in FL these plants are very susceptible to disease and bug infestations. Since the pickling cucumbers are smaller in size they are easier to harvest before anything can get to the plant
- we can enjoy these little guys as cucumbers or can them to eat later as pickles.Yum!
Remember that you don’t have to have a garden to can these little pickling cucumbers. Click HERE for the recipe. They are very inexpensive right now at any veggie market.
We love visiting the local Upicks and getting enough strawberries to make jam for the year. Here is our recipe. 🙂
Also, with zucchini selling for .69 a lb at Save a lot I figured it was a good time to can some delicious Sweet Zucchini Relish again. Yum! Click Here for my family Sweet zucchini relish recipe. My family loves using this relish in dips, egg salad, chicken salad, or even on brats.
Last week I even enjoyed making some delicious pumpkin puree from our mickey mouse and batman halloween pumpkins. My daughter and I baked some delicious pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. The rest of the puree I froze- for later use. 🙂
