We ran out of canned green beans last April. I have missed those wonderful jars of garden goodness when it comes time to make dinner. I didn't realize just how much we eat green beans. Our beans are now ready to be picked each and every day. I will spend some time today finding the canner so it can take its permanent spot on my kitchen stove until the garden has finished producing. My goal this year is to can 70 quarts of green beans. I think that will be enough, but if I have extra to can I won't be disappointed.
Last night I was finally able to get my first taste of fresh green beans cooked with our red norland potatoes. I remember my grandmother serving this dish. Heavenly. I also went down the road to a local farm and purchased some organic corn. This was the first time this year we had fresh corn on the cob, and we were not disappointed. I made some fried apples and cucumbers and vinegar and we feasted. Only the males of our family complained about the lack of meat, but I didn't care. No, I was in veggie heaven!!!
grace and peace,
