Goodness From The Garden

Since it was cold and rainy all weekend long the hubs and I decided to do some more canning.
After he went out to garden twice and came back with at least 30 pounds of tomatoes and over a dozen cucumbers we decided on more spaghetti sauce and pickles.

On Saturday we made...... 

6 quarts of Spaghetti Sauce.
Unlike last time we didn't blanch and peel the tomatoes, I just seeded them and he ran them through the Squeeze-O food mill. Worked much better and was quicker. I can truly call this organic since it was made from home grown tomatoes, peppers, onions, and herbs. 
On Sunday we made......

7 quarts of Bread & Butter Pickles

I don't think we will be needing any pickles for a while as this brings our total to a whopping 58 quarts and 3 pints. 
36 quarts of Bread & Butter
15 quarts of Dill spears
7 quarts of Sweet spears
3 pints of sweet pickle relish

There are still lots of tomatoes that will need harvesting and a few more cucumbers, then we need to harvest the beets and make pickled beets or beet relish. There are more peppers out there as well that I'll chop up and add to the freezer to use later. So much home grown goodness, gotta love it.

Well that's all for today, so until next time.......

Take Care & Happy Fall Everyone
Hugs, Sandy
