~ Cooking * Canning * Cleaning ~

Along with the wonderful harvest , comes a lot of ~ Cooking * Canning * Cleaning ~ the three c's. Yesterday I canned 14 qts of green beans and started prepping ingredients for making stuffed peppers today.
This morning I sliced up banana peppers , cayenne and jalapeno peppers , I pickled 5 pints. Now it's time to clean up the kitchen and get ready to stuff the peppers.Tonight we will have stuffed peppers for supper. I plan to freeze several also , these will come in handy on those busy days , just heat and eat.

Monday I made 6 more 1/2 pints of blackberry jelly. I tried a new recipe and it was sooo good , I decided to make some for christmas gifts. I'm determined to get my family to enjoy more wild foods. With today's economy being so bad and looking like it's getting worse , I hope they will learn to appreciate what nature provides.

Went to a local farm to pick blueberries yesterday afternoon , but their bushes had been picked clean.

Hope everyone is having a Wonderful day and your Harvest are plentiful.
