Oh, hello again! Welcome to Sandy's Kitchen... Sandy's Messy Kitchen! We have a few projects on the go.
First up... we harvested some prune plums from the tree in the backyard. They are super yummy to eat but if you eat too many well... they are prune plums and... well... you know. Anyhow, we had way to many to eat so after a bit of research, decided to make plum chutney!
Yum!!! It calls for the most interesting list of ingredients: brown & white sugar, onion, garlic, mustard seed, cider vinegar, crystalline ginger, raisins, cayenne pepper and a few other things. It smells fantastic!
Our other project is another harvest of basil. This is our third harvest. It is getting cooler at night and we're not sure we'll get another harvest. Some for some more basil puree for the freezer. Oh, and we're giving some bundles of fresh basil away...
Also a Beet & Potato salad for dinner! Yummers!
I am going to sit here and supervise... since that is what little bears do best.
Yup,.. did a good job of supervising. 12 1/2 jars of plum chutney...
And a bit left over for a jar in the fridge. Have you made any preserves this summer or fall?
