For the last three years I have been putting up significant amount of food for my family with the help of our CSA, farmer's market and our garden. I can, dehydrate and freeze the harvest. Here's my plan to preserve for 2014.
The Best Tomato is a big claim so let me give it credence. San Marzanos are: prolific, sweet, plum sized,disease resistant, less seedy than most,
indeterminate (continuous producers),heirloom (open pollinated) and above all excellent for canning.
With an abundance of rhubarb harvested, it was time to start canning this season. Making chutney is something I have not tried before and now I wonder why I waited so long? Tart, sweet, and spicy--it is so delicious.
