🍅An easy winter day lunch--from my garden! I’ve thawed another container of the tomato-basil soup I made at the end of the season. For protein I cut up a chicken-spinach sausage into the bowl before I heated it up. 🍜

It is my goal to eat from the garden all year round. 🍴📆 One of the easiest ways to do that is to cook and freeze soup, sauce, and other dishes made from garden vegetables and herbs. 😉

Missing these #freshpicked fall harvest veggies for sure, but happy to have them still filling the dinner plate! 🍽🌽Winter will be over before we know it as planting season lurks around the corner, but for now I'll enjoy the simple pleasures like not running to the grocery store in freezing snowy weather, and making whatever yummy recipe we feel like for dinner just because we can! 😋 .

We still have a few jars of homegrown homecanned salsa! Not quite a years worth but close. Love having it with our backyard organic eggs! #homesteadlife #foodinjars #masonjar #salsa #homegrown #preservetheharvest #heirloomgardening
Broccoli from the garden--just thawed and microwaved! -  This was harvested during the summer and then blanched, vacuum sealed, and frozen. I wish I had enough of this to last all year to the next harvest. 🌿❄ Tips: Broccoli is fairly easy to grow if you have the room for it. I like to intercrop other things between the broccoli plants to make better use of garden space. After you harvest its head, the broccoli plant will continue to produce side shoots. I am not getting as much as I used to, so I may go back to the variety called “Green Goliath,” which seemed to be more prolific. 😉

My favourite way to #preserve excess #chillis from the #garden 🌶🌶🌶
👉🏻Simply dice finely(or leave chunky if you like a bit more spice!) chillies of your choice, along with sliced raw #garlic in a #jar & fill with #oliveoil for a #delicious #chillioil 👌
Great as a flavourful cooking oil or drizzled over salads or cooked meals for a flavour punch. 🔥

‘Anzac’ Peaches. It’s a win! They were sweet, juicy and tasted fresh if that makes sense! We bet the parrots to them, continued to thin the peaches as they grew so the branches wouldn’t be weighed down with too much heavy fruit and snap. It’s a young tree that lost several branches during gale force winds a couple of years ago, we collected roughly two kilo’s of fruit. Miss Lil decided to stew some of the peaches with some cinnamon, coconut sugar & star anise for a crumble she has in mind.

Forget the 'Goodbye'!
But 'Don't forget the Pickles'!
🥒
When life throws you zucchini, beans and cucumbers.....and you've already a stash of onions, it's time to make VEGETABLE PICKLES !
🥒
We go through around about 60-70 bottles a year! Family fill suitcases when visiting and special requests are even sent through Australia Post (😉)! Chances are if we ever need to 'Thank you', if we ever owe you, give you a gift or you host us......someway, somehow, you'll get Pickles!💚😊
🥒
RECIPE
🥒
2 pounds onions
6-8 pounds other vegetable
🥒
I like 1-2 pounds each of
*Zucchini
*Beans
*Cauliflower
*Capsicum (love red for colour)
*Cucumbers
*Green/yellow button squash
🥒
Other options are
*Green tomatoes
*Broccoli
*Choko
🥒
Chop vegetables superfine and add to large boiler. Cover with cold water and a half pound of salt and leave overnight. Boil veges gently until soft and cooked (say 1-2 hrs). Pour off liquid through colander in batches. Tip: run cold water in sink while draining as VERY hot.  With veges back in boiler, bring to point of boil with 2 pints top quality white vinegar (or sub some apple cider vinegar but its stronger) 1 small tin drained corn kernels or fresh and 2 pounds sugar (castor). Stir until dissolved.
🥒
In bowl whisk together
1 pint additional vinegar
1 cup heaped plain flour
1 heaped tablespoon each of turmeric, mustard powder and curry powder (keens).
Add to boiling veges and stir to thicken.  Using teacup or mug, add pickles to sterilised hot dry bottles sealing lids immediately but not tightly. Fill right to top for good seal. Cool half hour. Check seal.
🥒
We love these over ham and corned beef on toast. On a cheese sandwich etc etc.

Apricot and Raspberry Jam all the fruit on from the garden and it will be a nice memento of our time here but I'm looking forward to the next chapter wherever that may be.

Bubbling #plums in a cast iron pot, surrounded by #preserving #jars which I sterilise at the same time. That way the jars are hot when filled up with hot #preserves.

The pot was full to the brim with fruit to start with and in 4 hours nearly six kilograms of plums were reduced to less than 3 litres of aromatic, thick #plum #povidl. I'm going to have some now, spread on a slice of buttered, fresh #sourdough bread!

‘Anzac’ Peaches & ‘Moorpark’ Apricots picked from the trees in our Back Orchard yesterday. If you are thinking of making Apricot Jam or Chutney I put about a tablespoon of butter in the jam saucepan first, let the butter melt, coat the sides and base of the pan before adding the other ingredients. It stops the Apricot Jam or Chutney from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan and burning. Because I only preserve Apricots a couple of times a year I sometimes forget about the butter step, this tip is now written under all my Apricot Preserve recipes. It saves on burnt saucepans!! Happy Monday Lovelies xxx

Capsicums are cheap at the vegie shops atm, so 1.5kg of fermented chilli-cap mash runs at about $10. Now the waiting as the jars of fire run their fermentation course. Took a whole 20minutes to make with a #fieryferments recipe. Lashed out $7 and got a very big, sturdy, deep baking tray to play overflow catcher if they get a vigorous fizz. #ferment #capsicum #chilli #fermentstation #fermentworks #preservetheharvest #preservedvegetables #preservedfruit #fermentedvegetables

Pulled the last of our #localapples out of the pantry.. heading for sauce today 🍎🍏🍎🍏 I must have picked up almost 40 pounds of apples this fall. With a family of six, I am realizing that I probably should have gotten at least double that amount. It goes very quickly here!

Considering I have near-abandoned my garden this summer (well, it feels like that! 😞) very excited to still be harvesting good amounts of lovely vegetables 🌱😋 A whole bunch of capsicums and a few jalapenos (underneath) plus a good heap of rhubarb and plenty of cherry tomatoes. Plus there's more basil than I have jars to make pesto! 🌱

Ode to true scallions in the winter; delicate, almost sweet oniony-goodness. I have been growing 'Ishikura' Japanese scallions for years. Grown to this small-leek size they are known as "negi". Most scallions are just young onions, where these never form a bulb= true scallions. They overwinter and I save seed when they flower in Spring. Soba Hoisen Stir Fry with Tofu.

This is what my Thursday looks like. I started 7 new ferments today. I picked up all the organic produce I needed at the co-op last night, in preparation for the snow that was predicted today. It’s been a while since I’ve spent the day chopping up veggies. I can’t wait until all these goodies are finished fermenting. 😍 I’m totally exhausted right now though! I have more planned for tomorrow! SWIPE TO SEE MORE PICS AND VIDEOS. ❤️ .

The roasted beets in today’s salad came from my garden! I roasted them back when I harvested them and froze them to use later. I could heat them to use in warm dishes, too, or use them in a soup like borscht. ❄

Gardener Wife Tips: Another way to preserve beets, of course, is to pickle them--you’ll get a completely different flavor! They are easy to grow from seed, and they are great for both intercropping and succession planting. 😉

So different from storebought - light and tender; and the well toasted unsweetened coconut tempers their potential for being overly sweet.

It’s Zucchini Pickle making time and that for us is one true tell tale sign that it’s Summertime! I started making this recipe twenty six years ago when I lived in a share house in a big old terrace with an outside loo, outside kitchen and roof top garden in inner city Melbourne. My hair brain scheme was to make & sell preserves to help pay the rent, we ate more than I sold! Some recipes just stick don’t they, I really have know idea where the recipe came from, at the time I collected Chutney, Sauce & Pickle recipes from library books and wrote them in a cheap lined notebook. This recipe has been fine tuned over the years and we even grow Cocozelle Zucchini’s from seed specifically for these pickles. Cocozelle is a firm zucchini, slow to bolt in our garden, holds it shape well, keeps its crunch and doesn’t go soggy easily. If your thinking of making preserves but feeling a bit overwhelmed start in small batches (use a recipe with only one or two kilos of fruit/veg in it) and do a little every couple of days when you are already in the kitchen preparing a meal. That way you aren’t processing 10kg of fruit or veg at a time and making something that takes hours to cook and you might not even like.

In preparation for the coming heatwave (42 degrees forecasted for tomorrow!) I watered the garden, covered plants which can be damaged by the heat and harvested last cabbages, beetroots and a few carrots. They were all #fermented.

Tomorrow I'm going to lock myself inside, with four rabbits, a water spray bottle, a fan and a good book.

Stay cool this summer, watch over children, elderly, pets and gardens!

A great day preserving yesterday! We still have no gas but luckily Lisa was too the rescue and we moved to her place. It was fabulous and preserving was much easily as a team and having other children so they played together. We got canned peach slices, peach and rosemary jam and peach wine. I'm still going to make a peach BBQ sauce in the electric frypan to bottle when the gas is back on. I can see why women connected and did this together in the past and I'll definitely be looking to do it as a group in the future!

One month until we start seeds indoors. Two months until we plant outside. Three months until we are eating spring crops. And six months until it’s time to can a batch of pickles. Seems like it’s so far away in the middle of winter, doesn’t it?

Immersing myself in warm fragrances while grinding #spices for the #cucumber and #zucchini #relish I made today. The colours and textures, smells and flavours make cooking an adventure 😊
I think I need a bigger stone #mortar though. Any suggestions?

In a pickle:  these black beauties are unripe blackened walnuts, bobbing in a pickling solution for a bit - until they're ready for their first date with a nice aged cheddar. ⏱ #preservetheharvest #wastenotwantnot #eattheseasons #eatlocal #walnuts #greenwalnuts #pickledwalnuts #pickles #pickledfood #curedfood #preserving #curing #pickling #homemade #homecured

Need to stay warm on a cold evening? Also is your house at 5% humidity from all that dry heat? Try canning tomatoes you froze this summer. Solves both problems.

Perusing tomato seeds this morning and would like to know if y'all have any favorites for canning. We love rich and complex sauces with multiple 🍅 types. Low acid varieties (usually yellows) are always a nice compliment.

It feels so good to have this many jars left in the dead of winter, and motivates me to do what it takes all over again. I hate that I had to stash the big old microwave over here, but kitchen renovations... when my popcorn lovin' Hannah goes off to college this year I'm taking it to the Goodwill. .

If you’ve followed my account for a while, you know that I am obsessed with pickled jalapeños and add them to pretty much everything. But when I want a little more heat, I opt for a jar of pickled mixed peppers. During late summer/fall the farmers at the @stpaulfarmersmarket sell baskets of hot peppers that vary from mild to HOT 🔥. I slice them up, add garlic and pickle them for delicious pickled pepper slices. So easy, aesthetically pleasing and satisfying. #pickledpeppers #canitandfermentit #canning #canned #weckjars #canner #waterbathcanning #waterbathpreserve #shelfstable #homecook #madefromscratch #pickled #pickle #urbanhomestead #veganrecipes #prepper #vegetarian #jars #spicy #hot #garliclovers #spicyfood #preservetheharvest

#after: red cabbage and caraway #kraut. I was asked to post a picture of the final result. So this is it - #simples 😉! I think cabbage is the easiest of veg to ferment - it so obligingly gives up juice to create its own brine with salt, is ready quickly - and makes the perfect partner for so many of the foods that I love (home made pork sausages, any type of schnitzel, eisbein, schweinzhaxe, corned beef, Lancashire hotpot, ‘dog rolls! - the list goes on 😍…). I do love it traditional-style with #caraway, perhaps because that's how I remember tasting it first as a child. But it's still wonderful without - if caraway's not your speed - and easy to switch up to a fiery kimchi too. Added bonus: this stuff is really good for you, in many ways. And if you love pickles as I do, but not the sugar that usually goes into them, fermented veg is the way to go. Also lasts for ages in the fridge - I would never be without it! 💜#saurkraut #cabbage #caraway #salt #time #preservetheharvest [This small-batch preserving jar recipe from @thekitchn.]

Here are the garden ingredients I used to make Cuban Black Bean Soup in the Instant Pot today: cilantro stems and bell pepper halves from the freezer, garlic from the basement, and bay leaves from a dried up plant cutting. Don’t worry, the other bay cutting, which I put in a plastic dome is doing fine. (Slide for pic.) 🍜🌿 Gardener Wife Tips: The 2 bay plant cuttings in the 2nd pic were started on the same day, so  you see the importance of putting new cuttings under protection. I could have cut the taller one to fit into another container, or I could have covered it loosely with a clear plastic bag. 😉

Happy New Year! 🎉 I upgraded our usual Sunday night snacks dinner for the holiday, and my garden’s contribution is in the upper left corner of the tray--warm jalapeño popper dip with pita crackers. 🌶🌶🌶 Also pictured, going counter clockwise from the jalapeño dip: smoked salmon with sour cream and capers on four-seed artisan crackers, blue cheese stuffed green olives and black olives, dried figs, almond-raspberry thumbprint cookies (made by yours truly) and peanut clusters (made by a sweet friend). 😉
Gardener Wife Tips: I made the jalapeño popper dip in the summer and froze it in several small ceramic bowls. I just thaw one ahead of time and pop it into the microwave before serving. This is the last one, but I could still make more from the jalapeño halves I froze, too. That’s good to know--now you’re good to grow!

I think I might be getting cabin fever... Started a few easy winter projects last night. Trying out bean sprouting, microbrews and a pineapple wine. Then canned my chicken stock from the other night. It turned out with the most beautiful golden color. I think the second garlic bulb was the key to it's amazing flavor. #sprouts #peashoots #microgreens #wine #homemadewine #homebrew #chickenstock #pressurecanned #garlic #mrsgarlic #preservetheharvest #cabinfever #winter #homestead #winteronthehomestead

Apricot jam, start to end. The #apricots are from a tree planted here a year ago, sweet nectar like fruits that I eat warm and oozing juices in the yard. With 7 people I am sure these won't last long, but they will be relished! Can't wait for next years harvest, this is already extraordinary. #apricotjam #growyourownfood #homemade #preservetheharvest #essentialcoffee

Another of our farm made products. I call this #magicjuice it's an infusion of flower petals that make this incredible color. Completely natural no added coloring. I like to add it to cocktails to make amazing colored drinks. When you add an acid like lemon or lime juice it turns from blue to purple. It's the key ingredient in our Tularosa Farm Margarita recipe. None of these products are available yet for purchase but we will be offering them as gifts for our crowd funding campaign we're getting ready to launch in the New Year. We're so appreciative of your support and interest in our farm and it's products. Thank you for following us on this journey!

Capsicums are cheap at the vegie shops atm, so 1.5kg of fermented chilli-cap mash runs at about $10. Now the waiting as the jars of fire run their fermentation course. Took a whole 20minutes to make with a #fieryferments recipe. Lashed out $7 and got a very big, sturdy, deep baking tray to play overflow catcher if they get a vigorous fizz. #ferment #capsicum #chilli #fermentstation #fermentworks #preservetheharvest #preservedvegetables #preservedfruit

I made these dill slices from our cucumbers this summer hoping that we could use them on Cuban sandwiches sometime this winter. So we had friends over tonight and made those sandwiches. So good!

❄Brrrrr!  Chili today--hot tamale! 🌶 I’m making chili on this very cold day (high of 10F). I’m glad I don’t have to pay $2.99 per pound for organic bell peppers because I still had some in the freezer from my garden. (I’m also using tomatoes and garlic from the garden--slide for pic.) 🍅 😉 Gardener Wife Tips: (1) I base my growing priorities on what foods cost more to buy and which produce is preferably grown organic due to high levels of pesticide residue if grown conventionally. Bell peppers are a good example as they are high on the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list. Conventionally grown onions, on the other hand, are quite low in pesticide residues and are on the EWG’s Clean Fifteen list. They are also pretty cheap, so store bought onions are fine with me. That is why I don’t mind that I’ve already run out of my organic garden grown onions. (2) I preserved these peppers by coring and halving them and then vacuum sealing them before freezing. Another easy option, which would save freezer space, is to use a dehydrator to dry them. 
That's good to know--now you're good to grow! 😉

❄Brrrrr!  Chili today--hot tamale! 🌶 I’m making chili on this very cold day (high of 10F). I’m glad I don’t have to pay $2.99 per pound for organic bell peppers because I still had some in the freezer from my garden. (I’m also using tomatoes and garlic from the garden--slide for pic.) 🍅 😉 Gardener Wife Tips: (1) I base my growing priorities on what foods cost more to buy and which produce is preferably grown organic due to high levels of pesticide residue if grown conventionally. Bell peppers are a good example as they are high on the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list. Conventionally grown onions, on the other hand, are quite low in pesticide residues and are on the EWG’s Clean Fifteen list. They are also pretty cheap, so store bought onions are fine with me.

Working on a batch of homemade orange pineapple marmalade, seasoned with pineapple sage that I had preserved from our gardens earlier this year.

These jars are filled with the most incredible raspberry jam. And love, sooo much love!!
.
We built raised beds and filled them with wonderful soil, we thoughtfully picked out raspberry varieties and planted the plants, we weeded them, we pruned them, we picked them, we froze them... we even kept the bees that helped pollinate them. And then I turned them into jam with nothing else but heat and a little sugar. I'm convinced you won't find a better jam than this! Toot toot! (<-- me, tooting my own horn 😉) #raspberryjam #preserving #homestead

🎄I did not use anything from the garden to make these snowman pretzels, but this is the only good food pic I took on Christmas Day. ⛄  I did use a leaf from my bay plant to make Ukrainian style sauerkraut and sausage, and I opened and served a jar of Tilly Beans--made with green beans and herbs from my garden. (Tilly Beans are pickled beans like Dilly Beans except with tarragon added, too.) 🌿
