Five Little Peppers…


…and how they grew!

Banana Peppers

We seem to have great luck growing peppers.  Last year we got lots of jalapeno peppers,  and we already harvested a basketful of  banana peppers this year – enough to can 3 pint jars.

Last week we went blueberry picking.  We picked almost 30 lbs. of berries!  I am snacking on some right now.  We froze a bunch, ate some,  made a pie, blueberry lemonade, and jam.  You can see the Lost Branch Blueberry Farm website here.

It was so nice to can again this year.  I always love getting back to canning.

The blueberry jam turned out wonderfully.  We have some in the fridge and I have been enjoying it.  As for the banana peppers…well, they had good flavor, but were pretty mushy.  I found a new recipe online for them that I am going to try – it’s here.  They are so delicious when they are crispy.

Do any of you can?  If so, have you canned yet this year?  And what did you can?
