Tomatoes, Beans, Corn, Oh My…..


At the beginning of the summer I swore off preserving of any sort.  I think my exact words were  “I’m burnt out” and “we were going to eat seasonally and give the rest away.”

Yeah right…..Maine Man planted green beans at three different times.  You know what that means….beans galore, three different batches.  Ate a TON, froze a bunch, and made some WICKED good dilly beans! 

P.S. Flower Girl & I like green beans best baked with olive oil & sea salt!


Tomatoes….well I have a quick fix for them. LOVE, LOVE my saucer!  That is what tomatoes that are left after the PESKY HORNWORMS had their way with them.  Sweet revenge …the kids had a blast plucking the hornworms off the plants and feeding them out to the chickens and County Boy’s quail like them as well.

Nice thing about a farm….we might not eat you but we will find someone that will!

3 batches of sauce in the freezer thus far.  Will make for some tasty soups & sauces come Winter!



Note to self & others :  NEVER walk away from the blender when your making butter when it is  transitioning from heavy cream to butter! Oops, my bad !

I will end this note with my FAVORITE way to put up corn….. CREAM STYLE CORN .  Click on that link and it will bring you to a how-to I posted last year on it.  Glad I recorded it because I’ll be referring to it this weekend.
