Preserving Day, freezing peaches and dehydrating tomatoes.
Last year I canned and canned because we had lost everything in the freezers for the past couple of years due to our power being down for days and sometimes weeks at a time. Now we have a generator for my husbands work that could also come home if need be to keep from losing the freezers contents. Thus I am freezing my little heart out and we will enjoy all these lovely things in the cold of the coming winter.
Today I am putting my second peck of peaches in the freezer. I have kept them in the spare refrigerator since I purchased them and they are ready to go.
First select the containers you prefer to use for storing the fruit in the freezer. Plastic freezer bags are good and there are also hard sided plastic containers available. If you need to wash and rinse them or just get them out and ready them for use.
The third container I use is a large, probably 2 gallon bowl and I squeeze the juice of one large lemon into the bottom of this bowl.
And wow are these little gems yummy!!! They have gone about 24 hours now and I have taken them off the dehydrator.
I also took the Roma tomatoes that were halved and dried and put some in small jars and covered them with extra virgin olive oil. I expect a lovely unintended consequence to be a deliciously flavored oil!!
Just one discovery after another!!
