Tomatoes and Corn!

The garden is cranking out tomatoes and corn right now, and we have been working on preserving all that we can. 

 Fabulous, fresh tomatoes out of the garden, waiting to be made into salsa.

 Salsa out of the turned out spicy this time, with some of our jalapenos added.  We like it though.

 Also, canning plain tomatoes for chili and stew this winter.  The orange and red tomatoes look so pretty together in the jars.

 We have been blanching corn on the cob.

 Let it cool on cookie sheets or clean kitchen towels.

Cut off the cob and put into quart freezer bags.  I have done 42 bags and am offically done with corn!  It was a lot of work, but I am happy to know that we don't have to buy corn for the rest of the year!  This should be enough to last til next summer's harvest.

  1. I shucked, blanched and froze 10 quarts over the week-end. Doing the same again this week-end. If I did 40, I would be done with the corn too, lol.
