My 10 Favorite Ways to Preserve Fruits and Vegetables

Today I’m sharing – in one place – My 10 Favorite Ways to Preserve Fruits and Vegetables. After already “putting up” rhubarb, jalapeno peppers, peaches, and zucchini for the blog this year, I thought I’d share a list with some of my other favorites. It’s that time of year – our gardens are overflowing, and we’re in the throes of preservation. As I’ve said before, it’s so much fun to enjoy a bit of summer sunshine in the middle of a cold, snowy Minnesota winter. Here are some of my favorite things to can and freeze.




Marinara Sauce


Peach Jam


Frozen Green Beans


Frozen Corn


Hot Bath Tomatoes


Frozen Cole Slaw


Turmeric Pickles


Uncooked Jam


Grandma’s Tomato Soup

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all you rad dads out there! (Rad is my oldest daughter’s word – not mine!)

The photo I’m sharing today is of me and my dad and it looks like we’re working on putting something together! He always let us help with whatever he was working on.

Happy Father’s Day!

Love you, Dad!

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

For those of you who have served, or have had family members who served in the military, we thank you for that service! We appreciate you!

My dad was in the Army and was stationed in Turkey when I was born. When he came home for good, I was 2 years old.

Thanks, Dad!
