Calling All Gardener Cooks...

MunchkinRedux | Aug 22, 202012:58 PM     141

It's peak season for summer veggies in the PNW where I live. That means some long days in the garden, followed by many hours in the kitchen cooking with and preserving all our fresh produce. It makes me happy!

This morning I made zucchini-carrot-apple muffins for breakfast (posted about it on the What Are You Baking thread). These were served along with home-made yogurt and home-grown strawberries.

After breakfast I made 3 quarts of gazpacho for the freezer, and I'm experimenting with dehydrating some excess kale for future use in soups.

What are you growing? What are you harvesting? What are you cooking and/or preserving?
