Wednesday Challenge – Preserving Food From GC and SueW.
This week, my partner Susan and I invite you to write about PRESERVING FOOD.
This is the time of year when many supermarkets, speciality stores and other such venues run out of mason jars, pickling spices and other essential ingredients that many diehard canning enthusiasts require to fill up their cellars with all those tasty fruits and vegetables that have become available during the summer growing season.
Canning enthusiasts are demanding certain sizes of mason jars and the like that they require to preserve their favorite peaches, pickles, peppers and a plethora of such produce that have made their storage bins the envy of their friends and neighbors.
Many of us remember our mothers, grandmothers or even great grandmothers standing in the kitchen before a cauldron of hot boiling water decked out in a heavy-duty apron, rubber gloves, and at times goggles in order to prepare those canned treats for their families and friends that were well received and complimented by one and all.
Susan and I invite you to tell us of your own familial experiences with this tasty and rewarding seasonal hobby. Perhaps you helped your mother in the kitchen creating her speciality blend of fruits and veggies that inspired you to begin your own canning tradition. Tell us about that.
Feel free to interpret the challenge to suit you, anything goes – Words, Pictures, Poetry, and Rhyme.
