If you've been wondering where I've been lately, the answer is easy: either at the market, staggering under laden produce bags and trying to corral two little monkeys, or in my kitchen, up to my armpits in fresh produce.
This month there's been pounds and pounds of fruit and vegetables coming through the front door, languishing briefly on the counter top, and passing through various preserving methods before making their way to their final resting place, i.e, the pantry or the freezer.
If you don't believe me, here's proof aplenty:
Sweet Summertime Blueberry Syrup
How to Freeze Sweet Corn
Garlic-Dill Pickles (This one is still on the 'to-do' list)
Freezing Broccoli 101
Canning Cherries (happening today)
How to Preserve Summer's Herbs
Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam (I added orange zest this time. Yowzas!)
My canning and preserving streak has even roused the interest of a certain local TV station...and they're coming over to crash the party next week. Double Yowzas.
Now if you'll excuse me, please, I've got a brand new cherry pitter to inaugurate.
Are you preserving anything this August? What are you waiting for?!
