I didn't get a chance to take a picture of this weeks auction haul, but it was a good week. I got half a bushel of peaches, a 20-lb box of zucchini, two cabbages, and a small box of onions for under $25.
The peaches all went into the dehydrator (some sliced for snacking, and some diced for oatmeal) except for the few I used to make some Peach Anise Hyssop Jam. Overall, I was pleased with the jam but I need to make a few adjustments to make it drop-dead delicious. At that point, I'll share the recipe! I'll need several more bushels of peaches to dehydrate, and I still want
to make some peach cobblers, so we've only just begun the peach journey. I still have canned peaches and pie filling from last year, so I don't think I'll make more of them.
The zucchini also went into the dehydrator (some sliced for snacking, some shredded) except for a batch of Bread and Butter Zucchini Pickles that I tried. I read in the Ball Big Book of Canning that you can sub zukes for cukes in any pickle recipe. Let's just say I won't be making them again!
The onions have disappeared... sliced raw on burgers, chopped in casseroles or on pizza... you name it. We've also been eating coleslaw with almost every meal, but I may end up dehydrating some of it for soups in winter.
