Don't get in a Pickle!

It's the time of year when I start to get into action with making chutney's with any excess home grown veg and fruit. Tomorrow's job, is to make chutney with the apples which have fallen off the tree this week. I love the process of chopping, cooking, filling and labelling jars. I find it very satisfying at the end knowing we will be enjoying this summers produce for months to come.

  1. Wow, have fun. We are celebrating family birthdays this weekend, so everyone wants Gumbo. Mom wants us to make 2 different recipes to see which one is the best ... cooking and canning is a lot of work, but well worth it in the end. Have a great rest of the week and weekend.

  2. This is beautiful as well in color, I'm sure. But I love the feel of this photo. Enjoy all that wonderful flavor you have locked in those jars!

  3. wow, what a talent. this looks and sounds like fun!

  4. I do love all these jars full of wonderful things and your shelves look so long! lucky you! very impressed!
