Summer Was...Preserving

First the cherries,

then the apricots.

Thanks to very generous neighbors with mature fruit trees, we have dozens of jars of fruit preserves to see us through the next few seasons.

Right alongside the preserves are pickled green beans.

We are extremely anxious to open a jar, but trying to hold out until next month. We attempted to grow our own green beans, dill and garlic this year, but the deer and moles had different plans. Oh well, there's always next summer.

  4. Hey Molly, how'd you preserve the cherries? I've got a bucket of Bings that need to get processed one way or another. Any suggestions? We've already dried and frozen a bunch. How about canned? What'd you do?
