Just went out to check the fall greens garden while the second batch of applesauce is in the canner. Most everything is now up. The hot weather is supposed to break tomorrow, so hopefully all the seedlings will be pretty happy and take off so that I can have homegrown salads into the fall!
Today’s preserving efforts have resulted in 12 cups of diced summer squash and 3 cups shredded zucchini in the freezer as well as 12 500mL jars of applesauce for the pantry. I’m tired and have a new appreciation for why applesauce is expensive. It’s a decent amount of work. Though my feeling is that my homemade sauce is far superior in flavour to those I could buy at the store. So, I’ll probably do it all again next year.
