Here is what has been happening this week at my house:
The peaches are in! Over the weekend we went camping with my family, and my mom brought me four big boxes of fruity goodness. I have been working on preserving them in stages as them come ripe.
Frozen is my favorite way to preserve these golden orbs of deliciousness, but I am also working on drying some and made some peach sauce today (recipe to come!). Check out my post on how to freeze peaches.
I made a couple of beautiful loaves of bread using my Homemade Bun recipe. I divided the dough into two loaves and baked for 30 minutes. I had not tried that recipe as just loaves of bread but let me tell you, it is delish! Get the recipe here.
I have oodles of cucumbers to contend with, and I am trying something new this year: fermenting! I got The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Fermenting Foods from the library and have been having fun with trying my hand at fermenting cucumbers into pickles as well as garlic-carrots.
So far the Garlic-Dill Pickles as well as the Garlic Sauerkraut that I made last week turned out very tasty so I am excited for the rest to finish their ferment.
Anything happening at your place this week?
