Welcome, Welcome! That sounds like a good way to use your produce, alright. Do you have a recipe or anything?

They are a pickle that uses the large overgrown cucumbers. You peel them, take out the seeds, and cut the cucumber in long strips. With strips of peppers and onions in the mix, the final product is like strips of "rags". They are not your crisp pickle spears, but they are taste side dish/salad. They are a great way to use up those overgrown cucumbers. The recipe comes from a church friend.

Hello, I am new to SP and trying to figure out where to connect. I have a large garden and a basement full of jars, so this seems like it may be a good connection. I try to can one new thing each year. My favorites last year were rag pickles and hot pepper jelly. I also tried basil jelly which was good, but I'm not finding many uses for it--maybe somebody has a suggestion for how to use it?

Hi, I'm just joining this team. I have recently become an avid gardener, canner and freezer. My garden is about 40 miles away, at my parents farm. I get out there about once a week to work on it or stay for a whole weekend. I can most of our veggies for the winter, spaghetti sauce, fruit, jams and the list could go on. I also freeze a lot of veggies that aren't good canned, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini. Looking forward to getting into this forum and seeing your suggestions.

The farmers market is all local. Lots of organic. I love it. I just seem to go overboard sometimes. Time to head back. I put up lots of tomato relish last summer, but hubby found out that it makes a great salsa. So, he ate it all with tortilia chips. That's okay though. I love making it.

It's great to have you here, Net! Sorry about your garden...those are the breaks, I guess. We all have that happen from time to time.

What kind of farmer's market do you have there? All local? Of do they bring stuff in from far off? Can you get organic stuff there? Just curious. We can get organic, but you have to watch, and it's better if you know the people you are dealing with. We also get far-off stuff (tropical-type) from time to time. We had the opportunity to try plantains and various other things that would never grow around here, w/o paying Giant Eagle prices to try. We love the market! The one closest to us just had a huge fire, and will have to be rebuilt. Most of the pavillions are still fine, though, and the tent-venders still come out.

emoticon I am new to this team. My name is Net. I have been with Spark People about 12 weeks and just found this team. I love to put up food for the winter. I do canned tomatoes, relishes, jellies & jams, and a variety of veggies. My garden isn't doing worth a flip this year [ too dry ] so, I'll hit the farmer's market. I'd rather can food than buy frozen or processed. No need for all that sodium and preservatives. Just wanted to introduce myself.
