Children are back in school and we are clearly looking at fall. Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year are around the corner. Throw a fall break in there, if you have children in school, and you have your calendar for the rest of the year.
But right now, we are enjoying the bountiful summer harvest. Going to a farmer’s market will heighten your senses. Enjoy the fresh produce because winter isn’t far behind. My Granny always “put up” vegetables and fruits by canning and freezing. I hope these arts aren’t lost in our progressive world.
When we can or freeze, we know exactly what it in the product. When we buy it, we don’t know exactly what is in the product. Because our health depends on our food, if you are so inclined, I think you are awesome if you can or freeze even a small portion of your food. In the winter when you take a cobbler out of the freezer that you made this time of year, it is far better than any you can buy! And probably more nutritious.
Whether you freeze or can or don’t do either, enjoy this time of year with our bountiful harvests. My favorites are the peaches this time of year. What fruits or vegetables available now are your favorite?
