I thought it would be fun to show you what I did with all the food I harvested last week.
Again, here was the harvest on Monday morning...
And here are some of the things I did with them:
|I have to sort through/reorganize my canning cupboard before putting these things away.|
|yellow squash soup with cheddar beer bread|
|blueberry zucchini bread|
|fried zucchini "cakes". (We had breakfast for dinner one night.)|
|loaded scrambled eggs and zucchini cakes|
|bread and butter pickles|
|On pizza night, we had green peppers with dip alongside our pizza. One pizza was ham, pepper, onion topped.|
|And one was tomato-basil garlic pizza.|
|For a reunion on Sunday, I made a veggie pot pie with these veggies, a bunch of cheddar, and the last bit of leftover zucchini soup. I used yellow and zucchini squash, green beans, collards, onion, tomatoes and garlic for the veggies.|
|This is it with the top on.|
|fresh salsa for the fridge. (That is wild garlic, by the way, not domestic., hence its teenyness) |
(I realize now I forgot to take pictures of the pesto I made and froze...oops. I also bagged and froze the leftover cilantro.)
There you have it. I kicked off my first canning week with a bang and we've been consistently eating like kings this summer. Matt, my meat and potatoes man, has been a real trooper eating a lot less meat and a lot more veggies these days.
A garden full of goodness is such a gift.
