So, like I said, we had to put them to work and get them off of the island counter!
Bushels of roma tomatoes went from this (sun drying on window screens w/ cheese cloth over top) to this.
Great space saver! Plus, I'll eat sun dried tomatoes!
Those huge zucchinis were put to good use. I peeled them (which turned into a crazy slime on my fingers that was excruciating to get off) and put them through the grater to make zucchini bread (which we disguised as "cinnamon bread" so the kids would eat it). 8 loaves of zucchini bread plus zucchini brownies (which turned out delish!)
Add to that, 7 1/2 pints of blackberry jam, 4 pints blackberry/raspberry freezer jam, raspberry/mango freezer jam, raspberry lemonade concentrate, canned tomato juice and two delish blackberry/nectarine cobblers and you will see why I am now to be called "Becky Home-Ecky".
