Preserving the Harvest
I turned this:
Into this (it is likely that I’m the messiest, most disorganized cook you’ll ever find):
And finally into this:
I shredded, chopped, diced, seeded, sliced, mixed, froze, canned until I could do no more.
Here are a few recipes of some of the things I made today (if there is no link, try back – I am adding recipes all night):
Zucchini and Onion
We recently had our roof replaced. A friend of a cousin did the work for us, so I fed them lunch every day they were here. Gregg was also home, so it was a fun time.
One of the days, I picked what was ready out of my garden and they were working on the side of the roof where they could see me. I had several nice looking zucchinis, and I overhead one of the laborers say to another, “I love me some zucchini bread.”
Since I hadn’t made dessert for lunch yet, I went into the house and whipped up a batch of my Grandpa Poe’s Zucchini Bread. This is the zucchini bread I grew up on, and have never really eaten one I enjoy more.
After lunch, the men got up from the table, and one of them said to me, “Ma’am. That was the best zucchini bread I ever did eat.”
High compliments, indeed, coming from an old Kentucky boy.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
You would bless me if you added me to your feed reader or subscribed via email.
