Summer's Garden
Summer's Garden is slowly winding to an end... the heat and lack of rain have really dwindled our recent harvest! Still getting cukes, zukes and patty pans, but it's just too hot for the tomatoes to blossom right now! The plants themselves still look good, so I'm hoping they'll have a second round of production when we finally start getting some cooler temperatures!

We purchased a new canning book at our local Tractor Supply store this season and today tried our first batch using a recipe from it's pages. The title is: The Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving by Ellie Topp and Margaret Howard. The title caught our eye as it is just the two of us here "on the farm" and we have only a small, square-foot garden plot.

The recipe we did today is called "Mixed Japanese Pickle Sticks". I liked it because it uses both cukes and zukes, something we have in abundance right now! It also calls for Daikon, which we have never grown ourselves. Wasn't even certain if we could FIND Daikon in our local grocery. They not only had it, but it was ON SALE, too! Can't wait to taste a jar of these in a couple months.

What are YOUR favorite canning recipes using garden-fresh produce!?!?!
