Happy Fall Equinox everyone! September 23 this year marks our move into fall, and our steady decent into winter. But this is not a time to woe the coming cold, but to celebrate a good harvest and continue to enjoy the produce of the season.
In the continuing spirit of the harvest season, Laura did a lovely job of jamming down some of our yellow plums form earlier in the season. Our freezers are getting mighty full, and with our holiday turkey and ham looming nearer, we are beginning to crack down on the produce in our freezers.
Laura, who had never really canned seriously before this summer is turning into quite the effective preserver! These lovely little things quickly became jam, all neat and tidy in their little jars.
So, while fall has come upon us, the Lovely Locavore Ladies never fret, but continue to squirrel away bits of summer to bring some sunshine to our winter. So, enjoy the last balmy days, and get that pantry ready for some winter squash!
