Our gardens are beginning to yield quite the bounty! I picked all of this last night and this morning.
Here's what I'll be doing in the next few days:
--Freezing green beans.
--Baking zucchini bread.
--Making Garlic-Dill Pickles. I've wanted to try my hand at these since trying something similar at the farmer's market a few weeks back. They were delicious!
--Freeze shredded zucchini to use in zucchini bread through the fall and winter. I freeze in 2 cup portions as that is the amount my recipe calls for. Just shred and freeze in a baggie. When ready to use, thaw and pour the contents of the bag, including the liquid because that's part of the zucchini, into the batter. Fresh zucchini bread made with a pureed orange added to the batter makes a delightful Christmas gift!
How are your gardens faring? What fresh foods are you eating now?
