What's old is New again- Summer in a Jar
Tomatoes were another staple in the garden. Rows and Rows of tomatoes. We made canned tomatoes, tomato juice, sauce and froze them. This was another long day at the stove. But there we were learning how to 'put up' the garden's rewards. Jars would be lined up like a little choir dressed in their red robes.
Pickles- This could be a book in of itself! Pickles were a staple at every meal. Dill, Dill with garlic, Bread and Butter's, relishes of every kind imaginable. We even had certain pickles for holidays- like watermelon pickles. Yum!
