Remember all those beans I picked? Well I finally got them all shelled, rinsed off (with a little vinegar water) and dried out. Once I’m confident they are fully dry we will store them for future use. There are about four pounds.
We are also attempting to dry some of our hot peppers. The top photo was taken three weeks ago. The second just yesterday. It’s interesting how the Hungarian Wax peppers are normally that pale yellow-green and turned orange or red. We also strung another bunch vertically but they aren’t drying as well. I definitely recommend hanging them horizontally like this if you can. Simply thread a needle with a sturdy string and hang them up.
A few weeks ago we also roasted, pureed and froze all our butternut and hubbard squash. They are quite beautiful, aren’t they?
There has been (like always) a lot more going on in our kitchen but most stuff gets gobbled up too quick. I have a handful of recipes to share but I need to make second (or in some cases third) batches to make sure the recipe is just right.
