summer bounty

As you have probably guessed by now I love canning, summer, and fresh local fruits and vegetables. This past week I purchased some beautiful red raspberries from a neighbor and some really beautiful black raspberries at my local farmers market. With them I made black raspberry and red raspberry jam and boy is it delicious.

While at the farmers market I also purchased some fresh kale, that I made into kale chips,  fresh basil, cucumbers, carrots and a cabbage. All week I have been adding these ingredients to some fingerling potatoes and browning them in my cast iron skillet which has made for some tasty dinners.

I also made some candy apple jelly – while this was not made with any fresh local ingredients I had been wanting to try it for awhile so I did.
