A VERY BUSY DAY INDEED!
This weekend was a busy one. My husband and I ventured out to the one of the many areas that features a Farmer's Market. We returned with a bushel of peaches, two dozen sweet corn and a very large bag of green beans. After preparing the beans and corn, they were promptly put in the freezer. Then I started to tackle the peaches. My first time canning peaches...I think it's easier to go to the store and buy a jar or two, but then again it would not be nearly the fun.
Well, I keep telling myself it was fun? The peaches will be used for the winter, when nothing will satisfy as a warm peach cobbler.
This is the partially filled box of peaches, I had already prepared half when I took the picture. They look yummy don't they?
The pre-canning stage........mmmmm, what fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally, the finished product. I think these will make lovely peach cobblers this winter!
Once the peaches were complete, I tackled the zucchini from our garden.
From this......to this......
Okay, I think I've worked in the kitchen long enough. In addition to the canning, I baked two loaves of banana bread from some very over ripe bananas. Monday brought more canning of the zucchini....zucchini is another story. Our garden is over run by zucchini.
Our very small garden, which produces sooooooo much!!!!! Gotta love it!!!!!!!!!
There is certainly much more zucchini to can or bake with, but for today I am only working on
creative things in my room. I need a break from the garden and the kitchen!
Tomorrow, more zucchini cannning and perhaps a loaf or two of zucchini bread!
