…and how they grew!
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?
