this is the part of summer i love! cooling weather and an abundance of fresh vegetables. this is also the part of summer that goes by too fast. we have to plan carefully not to let any of these precious fruits and leaves go to waste. every wednesday evening, after picking up our csa share, we process all things that can be saved for winter. for example, this week we froze broccoli and kale, we dehydrated eggplant and basil, made soups, and sauerkraut. i usually make a meal plan for the week that will utilize all of the remaining vegetables.
what is your favorite way to save the bounties of summer and stock up for winter?
