Preserving fruit and vegetables
Summer is a time
of plenty usually in the garden. Tomatoes, zucchini, beans, cucumbers
and fruits peaches, figs, bananas etc. The list limited only by what is
produced in your area.
Just what to do
with all the fruits and vegetables that have been harvested is a question
that is often asked. The solution is to give away the excess to friends
and neighbours, who no doubt will appreciate the produce. Using as many
fresh that you can yourself. Try and be adventuresome with your cooking.
There is another
way to conserve what is grown, and that is by spending time in the kitchen
turning the produce into something else that can be used at a later date,
preferably when not in season and expensive.
Making jams, pickles
etc are some of the ways and I will endeavor to get together a collection
of my recipes for this purpose. I have been making my own preserves
etc over the years and have been extremely satisfied with the results.
you have any comments, requests for different preserving tips or ways
to use excess vegies that you have grown, feel free to contact me c/-
The Vegetable Patch and I will endeavor to answer them.
