Hee haw!!! Good for you all!! Isn't harvest time the most wonderful thing in the world. The months of food growing in our earth, knowing what preservatives we don't put on our kitchen tables in the winter, wholesome, healthy, what more could you ask!!!
I just put down 30 dozen cobs of Jubliee supersweet corn (sh2). Man, my mouth is watering. I take the corn off the cob and freeze it, (of course after the blanching process). I only heat the corn when I need it from the freezer, tastes just the same as when it was first put down!!! Yeah!!!
I am right now in the process too of doing tomatoes, cooked and then the jars pressure cooked for speed. I cook the tomatoes, remove the excess water (and freeze that water for broth for soups and stews in winter), then process. In another pot I cook the celery (never knew how easy that grew until this year) and onions, put about 1/3 of this mixture in with the tomato slosh and then I have the ready made spaghetti (or whatever) sauce ready, sitting on the shelf, only a moment away. Yeah to all of us who make our own food!!!! Best of this beautiful day, beautiful life, great life. CIndi
