Today is Salsa Verde. I'll come back and post how many jars I get done. :)

I didn't have many tomatillos, so only got 3 half-pint jars. However, it is delicious! :yum

Here are a lot of rhubarb recipes.

I couldn't see a recipe for rhubarb tapioca in that link. Can you share your recipe?

So jealous! Now that the oldest boy is 16 he eats things almost as fast as we can prep them - we hardly ever have leftovers anymore and even when we get a case of tomatoes we eat tomato soup for a week and it's gone :lol

I miss canning and having plenty all the time. Living vicariously!

We love roasted rhubarb clafoutis, too. ETA: I freeze lots of rhubarb and eggs so we can eat it all winter.

I did 8 pints of rhubarb syrup last night; 32 c chopped rhubarb, about 4 c sugar, cooked it down and canned it. We'll mostly use it to flavor yogurt.

My kid beg me to make rhubarb crisp. It takes about 8 cups of chopped rhubarb. I love rhubarb pie, rhubarb cake, pretty much anything rhubarb. I think I'll plant a whole patch of it. :lol

We had watermelon for Memorial Day. I have the rinds, although not many. Trying to decide if I want a couple of jars of preserves or a couple of jars of pickles. :think

Hubby made a rhubarb crisp from ours.

I've never had watermelon rinds.

I've been thinking about what I hope to can this year. I planted tomatoes, and hope to get enough all at once to can. I might order cucumbers to make pickles from our CSA. And peaches & apricots from my friends orchard. Maybe something with berries, but we are pretty well stocked in jam still.

The other thing I really want to try is beans, both black and kidney since that's one of the few things we use canned a lot. Would love to do that at home instead of buying bpa lined cans. But it never has to be done "right now" since I will just buy dried beans and go from there. So it never gets done. Sigh.

I am counting down the seconds until I can make some more HUGE batches of the Strawberry Maple Vanilla jam from Taproot magazine. I made it last year, and it was amazing. We are on our last jar now.

It's kind of a Southern thing, but I did learn today while searching the Internet for something new to do with them that apparently they are also a delicacy in Serbia, Croatia, and Macedonia. Who knew?

I am considering trying to convert them into something that I can use as a pie filling later rather than doing a straight-up preserve or pickle. Something like a mincemeat filling perhaps.

Blessings,
Kelly

I'm totally going to miss the strawberry season here-June.

This recipe too, please. :)

Okay, so Salsa Verde was so good I made more. :yum

I also made more pepper jelly as my peppers have taken off.

I'm still searching for strawberries I don't feel gross about paying what they are asking for.

I did get some raspberries on sale this week and am going to try raspberry lemonade concentrate. My kids love flavored drinks and I feel so rotten about the stuff that comes in the little powder mixes that I thought I'd try to make my own.

Also, I made a berry cobbler for breakfast this morning with my berry preserves and my kids all went back for seconds.

I am hoping to have peas ready to can in a few weeks.

This is the clafoutis recipe I use. It takes a bit longer to cook if you make it with frozen rhubarb (more juices after roasting). Either way, it's amazing. I double it for my family. I double everything for my family. ;)

A bushel and a half of nectarines at the u pick place means I've got to come up with enough canned goods to make this a good investment rather than a waste of money. I'm planning on nectarine butter, a savory jam with peppers, a chutney, and just putting some in syrup for cobblers and tarts later. I'll post back with recipes of what I ended up doing with them.
