weekend preserving: a list

preserving the seasons


Lots of produce that I need to put up this weekend, so I thought I would put together a list for the sake of accountability. I’ve listed things in order of priority for my pantry, but this does not necessarily mean that I will tackle them in that order:

  • Crushed tomatoes
  • Shelf-stable salsa (small batch for emergencies) 
  • Ketchup
  • Fermented dill pickles
  • Pickled red onions
  • Fermented serranos
  • Charred serranos for freezer
  • Escabeche (small batch for botana emergencies)
  • Enchilada sauce for freezer
  • Fermented serranos

Tryint my best to not get overwhelmed by just taking things a project at a time. 

P.S. I got a batch of fig jam put up last night and feeling a little less guilty about letting the birds win today. I’ll head back out tomorrow.

P.P.S. If anybody wants watermelon rinds for pickling (not organic, sorry), let me know. Ended up with two watermelons today and feel guilty throwing out soooo much of the rind. Nobody in the house likes watermelon rind pickles, but I know you people are out there.
