Summer is such a great time of year for having fresh veggies and fruits available and usually at a good price. It is an awesome time if you don’t have your own garden to buy extra to put up to enjoy in the Winter months.
I love drying, canning and freezing fruits veggies and herbs this time of year. I chop fresh red, yellow. and orange peppers along with sweet onions mix them together and store them in bags in the freezer. This mixture is so good to use in stir fry or soups and stews.
I love making our own veggie broth. It is so delicious and tastes so much better than store bought broth. This time of year is great to make a bunch to have later on! I usually put up tomatoes, squash, okra, peppers, eggplant and cabbage. We also like to put up apples, strawberries, pears and peaches. There is nothing like using ripe fruit that you picked in the Summer to make applesauce, jams, jellies breads and cakes in the Fall and Winter months. You would probably be surprised at not only how much better tasting and better for you these fruits and veggies are but it is amazing how much money you can save as well.
We love grilling vegetables and also putting homemade bread on the grill. Do you take advantage of all the great Summer produce and put a lot of it up for the Winter months or are you just an eat it while in season type of person?
