Hi from the Poconos!
i even hate to complain really..we are very fortunate to have this produce. Didn't have to pay anything for it...just lids and the electricity to get everything canned, well..and a few other ingredients..but you know what i mean. ..traded peppers & bean salad for the apples...still can have more apples if i want more to do..hahaha, they are starting to get older though..a few more spots than at the beginning. I just might torture myself and get a few more for the peelings..now I have the "make your own AVC " bug to conquer! hahaha..might try to make crock pot apple butter.....i am a glutton for punishment! It does feel good though to look at all the food you grow and prepare with your own hands..you know exactly what was were and how it was done...and what is in it!! Makes it a lot easier to eat!
Just put G-daughter down for evening nap..oh my..feels good to sit down..hahaha, all the bean salad jars sealed...only had two jars not seal for this year so far...feeling pretty good about that too.
Made broccoli soup for tomorrows dinner..will make a greens salad to go with it. Collected the last of all those just the other night, before the "freeze" that didn't happen in our back yard...
Never did frozen onions..how are they on the thaw-out? Do they get mushy?..stronger flavor?...i know that hot peppers get hotter when you freeze them...my gosh, had to learn that lesson the hard way....
Good grief..it is dark out already...talk about mess-up my system
Is anyone in Chester County interested in some roosters, or can give me some advice on how to re home them? I have 3 roosters, and only 4 hens, so I'd like to find homes for 2 - I call them Buffalorps Their dad was a Black Austrolorp; mother was a Buff Orpington. They are beautiful! They were hatched on April 6, so 28 weeks old?
Any help would be appreciated!
There aren't many roosters more beautiful than these!
The birds are all gone. The couple that have the chicken hens and breeding trio of Bourbon Reds were very happy with how all the birds look. The couple brought two toms to their place to butcher, but came back with money. A friend of theirs lost his tom a day or so ago, and he couldn't get over how gorgeous my boys are. No one went to freezer camp.
Good bye, everyone. I will KIT.
be safe & happy
have done peppers like that..probably the same kind of consistency then..they have a high water content too. Not to good for "fresh", but awesome in cooked dishes.
I have used the dehydrator for the first time...got it a a yard sale this spring..never even out of the box! 1.00..hahaha...It is just a little 4-tray thing, but it has done the herbs wonderfully & in a decent amount of time...so nice not to have to wait days/weeks for things to dry out..just hanging, and to tell you the truth I get tired of seeing the messiness of it all..
Dried in the machine..oregano, basil, spearmint, lavender, thyme... other herbs, flowers & such were done by hanging. It is so cool to have all the jars full & ready to go
I did just have an entire jar of pumpkin seeds go moldy...i would have thought 2+ weeks would do it, but apparently not. I still have pumpkins to get seeds from, so not too concerned about it, but..now I am wondering if there isn't a better way to do this.....Do you think I could put them into the dehydrator?...or would it "cook" them?....
crazier than normal looks like this..
and this...scary, right?!
