Carole’s Concoctions:
Pickled Eggplant

A couple of weeks ago I harvested my eggplant.  Most farmers I know had small eggplant harvests.  But for whatever reason, I had a banner crop.  I made fried eggplant, breaded eggplant, stuffed eggplant and it just seemed we couldn't possibly eat it all.  So, the next option was canning.  I really didn't like the idea of pickled eggplant but i scoured my cookbooks and found a recipe that used my favorite Indian spices and thought, I could do this...of course, as usual, I didn't have all the ingredients.  And, guess what, I concocted!!

So here are the photos and I'll post the recipe tomorrow.  It is quite yummy and I already used it with sauteed cubed chicken breast over rice for a flavorful dinner.

Salsa Heaven

In my house we eat salsa a lot!  In fact, it's my favorite snack.  But there is nothing better than putting up 50 pints of salsa from the produce of your own garden to enjoy all winter long.  I encourage everyone to try it and if you are afraid - email me, call me, comment here and I'll talk you through it.

Here's the recipe.
