    I've been the crazy canning/freezing lady here lately! Have done lots of juice (mostly v8), not nearly as many carrots as I'd planned. It seems I have pint sized Robin Hood & friends around here, they steal from the rich - my garden, and give to the poor - my horses. LOL! Froze 25 dozens ears of sweet corn, 30 some qts of green beans and have a bushel to do today, froze peppers & zucchini and the best thing so far, I made cantaloupe sorbet over the weekend. DD has declared that the rest of her melons are to be saved for more. I don't know if she really likes it that much or if she really likes using the food processor to puree the melon.

    Been drinking a lot of cucumber water lately. Anyone ever just freeze slices to add to water later? Planned to dehydrate some but freezing would be a lot easier.

    I just discovered this thread! So far I have:

    -plum spice(cardamom, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg) jam,
    -apricot syrup
    -blackberry apricot syrup
    -canned plain tomatoes
    -canned stewed tomato/zucchini/onion
    -apple sauce
    -Fermented garlicy dill pickles
    -purple jalapeno-garlic sour kraute

    I don't think alcoholic beverages count, but I have beet wine, Saskatoon wine, blackberry apricot mead and peach mead fermenting, started in the last month.

    I have salsa, ketchup, crab apple jelly, regular sour kraut, fermented beets, canned peaches, hot sauce, carrot cake jam and a chocolate cherry mead planned for the next two weeks,

    I love canning season

    I am up to eyeballs in maranara sauce, just finished canning 14 quarts, it has been cooking for 2 days. About to go out and get more tomatoes from the garden, and start again. Whoo Hoo!

    How's it going everyone?

    Last night I did 21 qts of cinnamon applesauce. Had the dehydrator going for the last few days too. Did tomatoes to add to pasta later, cantaloupe, apple & watermelon to add to trail mix and going to do some banana chips for the kiddo today. Felt weird actually buying the stuff to preserve. Lol.

    Will probably be doing more juice today and the last of my green beans. Pantry is starting to look pretty!

    I am trying to get the last of my tomatoes into some type of can before they rot on the vine.
    Hopefully this weekend.

    I'm sick to death of anyone that's doing anything with tomatos because mine have totally failed for the first time ever - I am so depressed
    Carrots - got loads of them. Any suggestions for the best way to freeze them?

    Fermented pickles done, Peach honey wine in secondary, now have to make ketchup and pumpkin butter saturday, and maybe start a batch of crab apple jelly. Will get cider started as soon as the weather cools down. 32 degrees celcius yesterday

    I would think cut/peel, blanch and freeze in zip locks would work. I rarely have any left for freezing after I'm done making carrot jam, asian fermented carrots and pickled carrots.

    WOW Blue, you are ambitious! Well done!

    My corn is coming along nicely, won't plant this variety again. It's only producing 1 per stalk on average. Bummer, but it'll be yummy canned!

    My pears are meh, too wet, then too dry equals just right for the ponys!
    I need to get the last ones in the dehydrator.

    Taffy I need to do the same with my toms, but I'm kinda done. Dehydrating sounds like the best idea Mandy!

    JD I'd give you a crate if I could!

    So far:
    25 quarts of concord grape juice. Some have the grapes for later. I got a wine making kit last Christmas, but no time no to start.
    Only 2 quarts of tomatoes...so far
    6 pints of pears from my little tree--I harvested 31 beautiful Bartlett Pears
    8 quarts of tart cherries (back in June) for pies
    I haven't started on my peaches or my apples, yet.
