What's Left in the Larder
Today we ate our last winter squash harvested over six months ago. It was bitter and I'm sad about that.
I wondered exactly what is left in our larder. Here's the count as of March 9, 2010:
8.5 quarts applesauce
10 half pints tomato paste
3 quarts tomato sauce
12 quarts whole tomatoes
2 half pints ketchup
3 quarts barbeque sauce
3 pints honey strawberry jam
1 pint peach jam
2 bags frozen blueberries (maybe a pound each?)
8 2-cup portions of frozen pumpkin puree
handful of dried tomatoes
As we deplete our larder, we are relying on purchasing produce more than ever. I try to find fresh vegetables at farmer's markets and Clintonville Cooperative, our local natural foods store. Their selection of produce is getting slim and I can't wait to see more green house grown produce available soon!
How are your preserves holding up?
