Life can be like a bulldozer
They were too big to make pickles so I had a new recipe I wanted to try. It has me a little bit bumfuzzled! It said to grind up your cucumbers and sweet peppers and hot peppers and onions and celery. My sister-in-law had given me the perfect tool for that job Christmas two years ago. I had been saving it for the perfect time. The thing that worries me is how much "liquid" it seems to be , because cucumbers are a major part liquid? I am so hoping after spending all day chopping them up that this recipe will not ruin them????
My poor ole legs are just trembling from being up on them all day long.They are suppose to sit overnight and then drain them tomorrow and can them. I don't have enough vinegar so we will need to go get some and some more spices.
As both of us ended up in the garden at different times today I discovered that the beans also need picking . I cannot tell if it is enough for a mess - OR - if there will be enough to can?
I will have to bring up the jars and wash them and also check on the caning lids to see how many I have ??? See, it seems it is always SOMETHING.
Both of the gals who were in the hospital got to go home today , so that chapter has a happy ending. : ) Well, I better run (walk) back to the kitchen and mix up the salt solution to pour over the veggies and figure out a way to stuff them in the fridge! Sure do not want them to spoil after all that work. LOL
Love to all! :)
