The last few days has been a whirlwind. Jim and I decided to take a road less traveled and ended up at an Amish produce auction. I have never bid at an auction before in my life. They gave me a number and my hand just kept going up. I knew that I remembered how to can and freeze so I went for it. Little did I know that a "lot" meant each pint or quart. I when I figured that out, I stopped and found that I had spent $50.00.
I bought zucchini, peaches, apples, and plums. When I was about 12 years old, I made a recipe for preserves for 4-H. It turned out well and everyone loved it so, I decided that I would do that again.
Oh Ye of little Faith! I did it! May be it's because I am not afraid to fail or because I believe that I won't, but I'll try anything. If it didn't Jell, I'll pour it over ice cream. It's a little runny but great on my morning toast. The rest of the produce, I froze. I still have a peck of apples left so I think I will just cut them in pieces and freeze. The other peck I made cinnamon apple sauce and froze. I think it's time to buy a freezer for the basement. I had so much fun!
