Bean Season

The garden is in pretty rough shape this year, having been ignored for 3 weeks while we travelled and not getting enough water in general. But the beans are soldiering on, so much so that we got to can some pickled beans.

More uses for Blueberries

Getting desperate for blueberry uses, I turned to the index of the trusty Bell Complete Book of Home Preserving that Alicia mentioned in the last post. Blueberry Bonanza? Spreadable Blueberries? Blueberry Nectarine Freezer Jam? I opted for the Blueberry-Basil Vinegar.

Just mash together equal parts white wine vinegar and fresh blueberries, add some basil, and put it in a jar for a couple weeks. The jury is still out on whether this is a good idea… Alicia is looking at the fruit flies buzzing around it disapprovingly.
