What are you eating from your garden today?

(Homegrown, homemade sweet and spicy pepper jam.  My first foray into canning/preserving!  Four jars have already been given away as gifts and/or misappropriated.  I'm eating what didn't fit into jars.  Texture is perfect, flavor is indescribably good. Smile )
Awesome!! What kind of chilis are the red ones?

Thanks again llama momma for a great recipe and peace keeper. We have run out of space to store frozen tomatoes, frozen sauce, canned tomatoes, canned sauce and still more tomatoes. I found several pounds hiding underneath a fallen over tomato the other day, brought them in to an icy stare from my DW. I thought we were ALL done with tomatoes she said. I took three lbs. and made a batch and asked her to try some. She does not like tomato or V8 juice but she tried it and really liked it. My tomatoes have been forgiven. Very Happy Very Happy

Didn't eat these yet, but I picked them last night when I was pruning my tomato forest (don't ask)...

When the rain stops, I am going to pick some baby bok choy to steam and make a garlic soy sauce to pour over them.  I love that stuff fresh from the garden.

I will try to post a pic later.

thanks to all who introduced us to Dilly Beans carrot  

happy harvesting
rose....who has an after thought study .....can I make them from some of our frozen beans from the gardens?.....they were blanched first and then frozen

I've thrown everything from papaya and mangoes to daikon and cauliflower into the pickling brine left over from pickle jars and various vinegar mixes, and it always seemed to work fine. With my snap beans, the brine isn't seeming to penetrate the pods very much at all, even though I pick them youngish and tender. I don't blanche them, just stick them in raw. But haphazard isn't working as well as usual. Any recommendations on how to pickle snap beans better?

Those soups sound so good, Herblover!

I pulled a couple pounds of tomatoes yesterday, trying to decide if its going into roasted tomato soup, pizza sauce, or V8.  Or use the harvested broccoli from yesterday and roast it with german red garlic, onions, and carrots. Hmm.
hungry

Family Gardening -  so you love your Dilly Beans?  I too have dilly beans which I've never tasted before.  The canning recipe made 4 quarts.  Keep looking at the gallon of stuff in my pantry and now I hope we love it as much as you!

Lettuce and tomato salad with a red banana pepper and a chopped up red giant mustard leaf. On the side, butternut squash soup with a squash from the school garden I volunteer at. Also, a cream cheese sandwich, but that doesn't count!

I didn't personally eat anything, but I sent my neighbor home with a gallon Ziplock: 2 small but sweet Silver Queen, KY Wonder, tarragon, 2 small eggplants, red Russian kale and parsley. She was so happy to have "organic" produce! Made me feel kind of like a real gardener.

Wait, what is the purpose of a garden if you don't eat anything.  Sometimes I do plant a few things that my friends/coworkers/family like that I don't just for the pleasure of sharing my bounty.

That's a nice thing to do.

The only thing I had so much of I couldn't eat it all was broccoli raab, but my neighbors didn't want to try it. They're only used to eating broccoli with regular big heads and the leaves themselves weren't attractive to them, I guess. Like most people.

We've been working on the rental and too pooped to cook.  I'm just letting the garden survive on it's own until the end of the month.  I felt so good to share with this neighbor.  She even ate a raw green bean while we were standing there.

We ate the last of our fresh tomatoes two  days ago and we made the last cucumber salad for lunch and diner this morning. We put all the serrano's in the de-hydrator this morning, I roasted the last of the poblanos and pimento's for freezing and we froze the last of the other peppers. All we have left are lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, radishes and carrots.

How do you dehydrate peppers?  Whole or cut up?  I have some jalapenos and hot wax left and a dehydrator so was wondering how best to dry them
