Here are my final totals for the year. The only way this would change is if Wayne gets a deer hunting, then I'll add canned venison to this list.
- Dill pickles 60 quarts
- Green beans 70 pints
- Salsa 72 pints
- Diced Tomatoes 15 pints
- Spaghetti sauce 48 quarts
- Sloppy Joe sauce 26 pints
- Pizza sauce 8 pints (new for me this year)
- Apple pie filling 24 quarts
- Applesauce 38 pints 13 quarts (also new this year--but now a staple)
In addition to all this, I also wrote another book. Autumn Kiss, book #6 of the Romancing Wisconsin series. I'll tell you all about it in an upcoming post this week because it releases Oct. 21st.
Did you do any canning? If so, let me know what's different from my list - I might want to try it next year.
Oh, and I did grow the cucamelons I talked about in a previous post--my son liked them okay, but I wasn't too impressed, so I didn't really do anything with them. The taste was fine, but they reminded me of a cherry tomato-all squishy and seedy inside and that doesn't do it for me.
Also, last year I did 8 pints of pears off our tree, but this year the pears ripened much faster than I expected with the cooler weather we had, so the kids ate some fresh off the tree, but unfortunately, the rest rotted.
That's it from me. Have a wonderful day!
