We always had a pressure cooker in our house when I was a child. Before crock pots, that was one way to get a meal on the table when there wasn't a lot of time immediately beforehand. Dad always told me that it was the best way to insure that the vitamins in the vegetables didn’t get poured down the drain with the liquid.
I’ve heard horror stories about unwatched pots and understand that some people are afraid to use them, but this was something I was familiar with from childhood.
So even though I’ve been unable to spend much time on SP over the last week, I wanted to check in and report that our garden is rewarding us for our efforts.
However, as nature’s bounty increased, I realized that I had to DO something with it.
We have a table at church where we share our garden produce. In the past I would pick up something now and then. On Sunday I was a contributor and people took what WE grew – how exciting!
Then I dragged out the pressure cooker. As much as I want to eat naturally and healthily, I really don’t like spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
These took 2 minutes.
and were followed in the pot by these.
I wore plastic gloves to clean the beets since I remember how fingers can get stained.
I’m really enjoying this and thank you to all sparkers who have given me suggestions.
