Market Trip

Just got back from the farmers market. Lots of plans!

Fresh tomatillos!  Very exciting.  Plan to make and can salsa verde using the jalapeños in our garden and fresh cilantro and onions.

Fresh cranberry beans!  I've never had these before but plan to shell and simmer them in water, herbs and oil for 20-30 minutes. So pretty!

Last peaches of the season. Plan to eat these for snacks.

Corn on the cob for dinner. Honeycrisp apples for lunches.

Fresh green & yellow beans for dinner. Cilantro for salsa verde.

And a bushel of fresh Roma tomatoes to combine with onions, peppers and basil for a huge batch of pasta sauce.

Recipes and results to come!

  2. I bought one half bushel of tomatoes a few weeks ago for sauce. The next day I decided it wasn't enough since we ran out last winter, so I bought another half bushel. We have 22 containers in the freezer now! Nothing like it.

  3. So smart! I have no freezer space so I think we're canning it.
