How to utilize your end of summer garden
Do you recall watching your grandmother can? For example, she may have canned green beans. Possibly, Gram may have made jellies. At any rate, my grandmother and yours knew how to use what they had on hand to the fullest. The end of the summer, especially here in New England, specifically put their know how to the test! Do you have a garden?
If you have tomato plants, you understand how quickly green tomatoes pile up as the season comes to a close. Of course, you don’t want to waste food! So, what to you do? Simply learn how our grandmothers’ vintage recipes can utilize your end of summer garden like theirs. “Waste not want not”! One of my family favorite vintage recipes, Green Tomato Picalilli, utilizes green tomatoes to the fullest. Once in canning jars the relish can be enjoyed year round. It also makes great gifts for the holiday season!
