I think it would be cool to have a category to share our recipes and food advice for cooking and canning with our harvests. I love to see what other people do with what they grow (this is how I found Cowboy Candy!!!!!!!). Anyone got any unique recipes for canning they want to share?

I made a great tomato chutney. If I can find the recipe again, I'll post it.

My cooking is too simple. Fresh foods for salads and stirfries with about everything else. And an occasional spaghetti with meatballs. Ok a 3oz steak.

Just give me 3 veggie sides too.

I am really bad at stir fry. Maybe a recipe would help. Lol

I don't make a chinese style sauce usually, though a bit of cornstarch and some chicken broth will work cooked for 90 seconds or so on low heat after the meat and veggies are out of the wok.

I usually just toss them with cooked angel hair spaghetti and add some soy sauce and sesame oil after.

I had a major find today, I was taking some trash to the dumpster behind work, opened the sliding door on it . Someone had thrown out a bunch of canning jars! I checked with my sister to see if I could use her dishwasher for them. There were more than I first thought, ended up being 15 quart size, 21 pints, and 12 8 ounce. I still need to look them over carefully and get new rings and seals but it was my lucky day.

Holy moly, Robin -- that's quite a find! Make sure there are no chips in the rims of the jars (if there are, they won't seal properly). It's a simple matter to get new rings and lids. Thumbs up Thumbs up

Now I'm wondering how many jars that I've given away over the years have ended up in the trash... Sighing!

I found some at a garage sale and she just gave them to me. I love when that happens because I can almost everything I grow!!!

Sprouts had tomatoes on sale this week. Bought a bunch, made sauce in the Instant Pot and then canned 6 pints.

@LizDTM
Can you post your sauce recipe for your instapot?
@Yardenman - what's not to love about simple cooking Hurray! do you make your spaghetti sauce? Do you have a technique and recipe?
I would love to post a recipe for lunch pickles I tried a few weeks ago. It was delicious. I am in Texas right now with my ill Mother. When I get back home I will post it if anyone is interested.

@Toni, I simply cut the tomatoes up, smash them down as I go. Then I put the cover one and cook at pressure for 20 minutes. I let it release naturally usually about 25 minutes. Then I use an immersion blender, because I like a thick sauce.

I can it like that, no spices or anything, just the tomatoes. I prefer to flavor it when I'm using it.

I purchased some peaches at a local produce stand to make low sugar jam. I was not impressed by the flavor of the peaches, ended up adding some cinnamon. Turned out okay, put a spoonful in my cream of wheat yesterday.
I purchased some peaches elsewhere and plan to make more jam today (no sugar). Hoping these peaches have a better flavor.
