Tuesday Twister (my first)

GNOWFGLINS hosts the Tuesday Twister each Tuesday. Visit for more information & a great blog overall!!

I don't know how often I'll do this as I'm bad about keeping up with blog memes, carnivals, etc. But I thought I'd do this this week as my kitchen has been hopping!

Aside from my typical ferments (kraut, water kefir, kombucha, etc) I've been canning a great deal!

The last couple of weeks I've been able to get my hands on organic peaches by the case & have been able to teach 3 ladies how to can with these. A few days ago I bought a case of semi-local, organic apples. Today I'm working on winter meals- beef stew, chicken stock & chicken soup (all natural chicken, organic veggies & herbs, etc); chili made with all natural beef & organic ingredients. I've been picking like a mad woman from my own organic garden (can't get more local than that!) & dried some zuke chips. Nice!!!!

The list is huge of what I've been able to stash in my canning pantry:

Peach jam, peach butter, peaches, peach puree, applesauce (cinnamon apples soon to come), chili, chicken soup, chicken stock, grape juice, turnips (locally grown & not by a mass-producer).

Unfortunately, we've been having issues with our computer..... still..... so I don't have many pics on the computer to share. I'll share a couple that I do I have!

Love your Twist. Is that a picture of a peach cobbler?

It is indeed! I made blueberry apple crisp for dessert tonight! It is so good. I'll share the recipe later!

I dub thee Lady of the Peaches.

Very nice work! Thanks!

Michaela ~ thanks for joining in the Twister! You did a great job. I'm impressed by how much you've been putting up. The cobbler looks really delicious! I hope to see you again next week. :)
