It’s that time of year again. Time to fill up rather than take from the pantry. We did our first really big batch of the season last week, that being Flathead Cherries. We bought 100 pounds, turning some into jam, brandied some, dehydrating others, and finally putting some in an extra light sugar syrup for winter snacking. There’s been plenty of fresh eating too, don’t forget that.
We’re also putting up the veggies and herbs from the garden. There’s been freezing, dehydrating, and canning of those items too.
I love watching the shelves fill up and knowing that there will indeed be good homegrown eating come the cold winter months ahead.
How are your winter stores coming along?
