right now our garden is bursting with vegetables- always seems to come all at once. this past weekend I did some canning so i can enjoy some of this bounty all year round. i made some pickled fennel with grapefruit zest, cherry tomato and chili chutney, pickled beets, pickled carrots with carraway, spicy pickled carrots, and pickled chard stems. pickling is so easy and quick and you can pickle just one jar at a time. people oftentimes think that you have to grow loads of vegetables to can. i oftentimes just pickle a jar or two and can items from my farmers market.
i don’t know what it is about canning but it always makes me feel so good. it always brings some country vibes into my city home.
