Canning Season is starting on Long Shadow Farm

I recently completed my first batches of dill pickles and bread and butter pickles. My cucumber plants have taken over the greenhouse, so I suspect MANY more batches of pickles to come. I am picking up peaches, tomatoes and pears in the next few weeks. That will produce peach ice cream, canned peaches, peach preserves, and peach pie filling as well as a very intriguing carmelized pear ice cream, and pear jam. We'll see what happens with the tomatoes, most of them go to tomato sauce for my own family, and we are on our last jar from last year, so I need more!

Either way, lots of good canned items and ice creams to come, so don't forget to pick some up when you stop by for chicken!
