Oh my goodness I've been busy canning. My church has once again blessed us with produce. I've canned 48 jars, quarts mostly of tomatoes, 28 quarts of potatoes, a few pints of potatoes, 10 quarts of French onion soup, a few pints of the same, 3 quarts of okra and 1 pint (I wished there was more), 10 half-pints of raspberry jam, 2 gallons of frozen raspberries, 10 half-gallon bags in the freezer of broccoli, and then I bought a bushel and 10 pounds of apples for apple pie filling and apple butter. I'm sure I've forgotten a lot but we are going to have plenty to eat this winter. I still have tomatoes and potatoes in the freezer when I ran out of jars so we'll eat them first. I'm baking most of the last of the potatoes tonight, along with bacon, broccoli and sour cream for supper tonight. 27 quarts of green beans, I knew I was forgetting something. We also have strawberries and blueberries in the refrigerator for fresh eating. I also froze mangos, dehydrated mangos, and made mango preserves. Oh and oranges which I dehydrated slices, dehydrated zest, and made a few jars of marmalade. God Almighty through our church has blessed us, our church family and the community mightily this summer. My garden didn't do well and then we had to move but I still made out like a bandit on produce. My friends, neighbors and family have all been blessed.
