Late Summer Food Projects

Pin It

VB has taken a keen interest in pickling, possibly to compensate for our epic FAIL on homemade sauerkraut. So despite having a ton of stuff to do at home, we still managed to get two food projects off the ground. This one came with a big assist from VB's mom, who mailed some pickling salt and spices to us. We found some large quart sized wide mouth jars and added sliced cucumbers, carrots, onions, zucchinis and radishes. They look so pretty in those jars! This is a quick pickling process and only requires five to seven days of refrigeration. So we will be enjoying them very very soon.

The other project is equally delicious but we have to wait a bit longer before we can enjoy it. We're planting tomatoes and peppers! It's a bit late in the season considering most tomato plants should be bearing fruit by now, but we're hoping to have some tomatoes by late summer/early fall.

As for the peppers, we already have some baby jalapenos and Anaheim peppers (can you spot them?). I can hardly wait!

Totally unrelated, here's a picture of Tangerine living the good life -- lying in the sun with a full belly. All she needs is a pillow and a drink with a tiny umbrella in it.
