This morning I'm making mushroom broth to can later this week. In the pot fresh portabellas, my home dried button mushrooms, dried sh**akes from Amazon, 1 onion, garlic, fresh bay leaf, fresh Syrian oregano. and fresh lemon thyme. Mushroom broth is so good in winter soups, stews, and sauces.

I dried mushrooms and then powdered them in the blender -- also good in soups and gravies.

Sounds good - and so much easier than having a still in your back forty.

I have been busy making pickles. My dill pickles are “famous” with my family and friends. They are not too difficult, and we have had a banner crop of cakes this year.

Always a good thing to have plenty of pickles. Good luck with them Nicole. We canned 5 gallons of fresh apple cider last night. Got another two and a half for the moonshine, that is ready to go into jars this morning. I don't can that, just leave it in the fridge. My ma and dad, cousin and sister came over to help, and of course share in the bounty. We were done squeezing in 2 hours.

Michele, good job on your apple cider and moonshine. If you'll please tip a glass south toward Texas.

I am delighted this was the first year I planted tomatillos and what an unusual plant! I just love their little lanterns that eventually after the plant grows to four feet finally start growing the green tomato inside. I harvested 15 pounds of them and I canned salsa and also green enchilada sauce. I just canned some Maple Sweetened Apple Butter. Our apple trees were prolific this year and I have two huge bins of apples so I will make apple sauce and other canned items from them too. Busy in the kitchen these days roasting tomatoes and making sauce from them. Annie

Annie, glad your tomatillos did good. I like green enchilada sauce but have never made it.

Michelle maybe you will find them next year.

Jana, that is quite the impressive list! Good for you!

Sara, I bet the mushroom broth is lovely. I bet it adds such depth and richness to recipes. I can just imagine using it to make gravy for a beef or venison pot pie :) I had to giggle at your comment to Michele about the still in the back forty :)

Judith, what a great idea using the mushrooms! We have so many different varieties growing wild here in the UP but without having a guide show me what is edible or not, I am just going to purchase from the store :) I really would love to learn how to forage them :)

Michele, we don't drink but if we did I would definitely be trying your Apple Pie Moonshine :) It sounds tasty. You know I never even considered canning Apple Cider. I'm glad you brought that up because it looks like a bumper crop of apples this year and we are getting ready to bring the cider press out. Do you can in quarts? About 10 minutes processing time in a wb?

Nicole, so glad that you had a great crop of cukes :) I love dill pickles.

I haven't canned anything since my last post. Waiting on Grapes and Apples for Cider :)

Thanks for sharing girls you are encouraging!


Annie, I tried a tomatillo for the first time this year :) They have nice flavor and I bet go fantastic in Mexican dishes. I LOVE the smell of roasted tomatoes! When I am successful in harvesting ripe tomatoes I freeze them and come Winter I roast for sauce or bisque (especially nice on a snowy day :) ).

Canning fresh cider- get it hot, and process 10 min is what I did. We did quarts. I thought I read that you should get it up to 190 for 10 min before putting in jars and do not let it boil. I had it to 180, and canned it. I have to finish my tomatoes this afternoon hopefully. I have two thirds of my garden cleaned out. The deer were eating everything even green pumpkins. Happy canning everyone.

Michele enjoy putting up tomatoes this afternoon. Sorry the deer are eating your garden.

I only canned tomatoes one time and it was in the early 1970s. Here's what happened. I bought a bushel of tomatoes and the elderly lady next door was helping me can. My first experience at canning anything. After I peeled the tomatoes we set about canning them. She mentioned that I looked tired. I told her it was just my time of month. She told me that my tomatoes would spoil because I shouldn't have touched them. I thought it was just an old wife's tale. Well every jar had black mold.

Several years latter I was at work in a clean lab at a technical company in Dallas. One of the engineers was from another lab in Arizona and he told me that lab was so clean they paid women to stay home during their cycle because by touching the circuit boards they would contaminate them. I said "So that's what happened to my tomatoes." He thought I was crazy until I told him about the time I canned tomatoes.

Connie the engineer told me it's because of the chemical changes in a woman's body. Makes you wonder how many other old wives' tales are based on fact.

I need to get back to canning dried beans but it seems like I keep finding other things to do with my time.

Canned applesauce yesterday and more to do today. I don't remember what kind of apples but they sure give the applesauce a nice rosy color.
