Every morning my ritual is to go directly to the garden, coffee cup in hand.
When I got out there this morning my intention was to start picking as many peppers as I could find, and boy did I find alot!
I was able to pick enough peppers, and green tomatoes and combine them with what I had from my earlier garden pick this week with the onions to make a small batch of salsa verde, or green chili as I like to call it.
Usually I will cook this on the stove until the peppers are nice and soft, when that happens its canning time!
This week I am going to experiment and see how it puts up after putting it in a seal a meal bag and freeze a couple bags.
The end goal is Winter! Those cold, stay at home wear the pajamas, don’t do much days, put a chicken in the crock pot and smother it with a bag of the garden salsa verde.
I always close my eyes and transport back to summer, those long hot wonderful garden filled days!
This morning I also came out of the garden with a bucket of beets. I give some of the greens to the chickens, they luv them, and a few to my breakfast and dinner plate.
This afternoon I washed the beets, peeled them, par boiled, and sliced, right into the seal a meal bags they went and off to the freezer. Once again I cant wait for winter!
Finally all the zucchini and squash I get go thru the spiralizer into the seal a meal bags and into the freezer.
Having a full freezer is like heaven on earth!
