I think I mentioned yesterday about the green beans we picked. This morning I finished cleaning and snapping them and got them canned. I saved out enough for a couple of meals. Since they were just picked yesterday, they’ll last a few days in the fridge. I also saved out all the little ones for frying.
Our night temps are into the low 40’s. 42 tonight I think. The tomato plants will not die til it gets down to about 33 – 35 but I figured this is close enough so I picked all the green tomatoes today and made green tomato relish.
Nine pints and two half pints of green tomato relish and I have enough tomatoes, bell peppers and jalapeno peppers to make another batch but I might make something else with those.
Vince came inside just as I was taking the jars out of the canner and said “I HAVE to have a hot dog with that relish.” I told him we’re having hot dogs probably tomorrow while Addie is here so he decided he’d have a liverwurst sandwich with relish . . so I opened a jar that just came out of the canner!
That really is good stuff.
