We have been working like kitchen slaves for the last couple of weeks. Here is a shot of a small portion of our pantry. There are very few things in this world that make me happier than looking at this. Lots of work, but we have food for winter and beyond.
Those shelves are 3 jars deep and we have 6 cases of 12 bottles each still in the garage. There are two kinds of salsa (medium and hot), 2 kinds of broth (from the salsa (medium and hot), pepper relish and applesauce.
Call me a glutton for punishment, but we still have a few more things to can – cabbage into sauerkraut, beets and probably pears. As you can obviously see, I am obviously way into it. And then I turn around from those shelves and look out into the greenhouse where we have several kinds of herbs, lots of peppers and flowering tomato plants.
Fall is here and we are looking at a “long winter nap.”
