Harvest time!!!

Standard

I don’t think I would have made it in times of old. There was always something to do out of necessity. We are blessed to have people who share from their gardens. Learning to preserve foods has been a new unforeseen past time of mine. I have had to learn to can tomatoes -not a whole lot because we make and eat fresh pico de gallo every few days. But putting away potatoes has been interesting!
I have learned to parboil and freeze potatoes instantly and place into food saver bags that allows us to pull the air out of the bag. So far I have put away three one gallon bags of potatoes cut as French fries and three one gallon bags of dices potatoes! Mind you these potato are fresh from the Earth and therefore full of dirt. While the French fries are simply the best, it is a lot of work!

Putting away bell peppers was easier. Just dice and place into ice trays and freeze. Once frozen, remove from ice trays and place into ziplocks. When ever you need some just pull a cube from the bag without thawing the whole bag 😌

Now the okra we got, I’m not so sure about. But I diced and place them in a food saver bag as well. Time will tell.

While I was pretending to relive an episode of Lil House on the Praire, my hubby was manning the grill. Somehow, I think my job was harder than his!
