    Saturday, 6 quarts of pears from 1 of 7 buckets of pears. 6 buckets to go. Hope to finish those this week. They have really stored well in the garage AND the cats have access to the garage so no mousy foolishness nibbling on my fruit!

    @Nyboy ,

    I have never just froze filling mix then loaded the crust for baking with thawed filling, later.

    Seems like it should work.

    Pickle candy. Anyone tried it?

    I saw it on the internet the other day. Thought I would try some. I got two 24 oz jars of bread & butter pickles. Filled up 3 dehydrator trays. I'll let ya know how they taste.

    It tastes like pumpkin pie too! It's really nice. I used this recipe, but less sugar and without the allspice and cloves because I didn't have them.

    i am a month late, but i put up the garlic that was starting to sprout.

    usually i get it done in January.

    the garlic would keep longer without sprouting if i had kept it in a darker
    location, but sometimes things get moved and i don't know it...

    in this case i was able to salvage about 2/3rds of it and after i had it
    trimmed of things that didn't look right i did the usual with it - which is
    to grind it up in the meat grinder and then drench it well with lemon
    juice and then pack it into small jars and heat up some lids, put them
    on tight and then put it in the freezer for longer term keeping. it can
    be kept in the fridge for a while because it is packed in enough acid
    that i don't worry about it, but because Mom doesn't have any cooking
    projects coming up for a while i just put it all in the freezer.

    i will be giving away six small jars this weekend to get rid of it (to
    whoever might want it that shows up at the seed swap this weekend).
    i don't like the small jars and needed a good excuse to get rid of them
    so this works out. :)
