Processing food

We spent much of the weekend again processing food we grew
in spite of the challenges this summer.
We successfully grew cauliflower, small carrots, onions, a variety of hot peppers.
Fred prepped and canned those in a brine. Should be ripe in a few months.
We also blanched & froze cauliflower and the last of the beans.
We used to process food mainly for the quality and the
sense of accomplishement. Now the financial benefits are also great.
It is like a second job, that we love to do.
The food?
Fresh is the best. And when you grow it yourself, a satisfying taste.


  1. Not only it is best, it is safer. I am reading "Tomatoland" and I recommend you do too. You would be aghast. Who knew we had slavery in FLORIDA??? And now I know why our tomatoes are rock-hard.

    I'll never look at a tomato the same way again.


Feel free to leave comments. Have a great day in the Universe!
