Thanks for the dilly bean recipe. I guess I'll be picking a few more beans to do for my husband. He deserves it, he rubs my feet!! emoticon
As far as the beets go a can them and we eat them. My husband likes to open the jars and make pickled beets, basically he just add vinegar, water and onion. My kids love to eat them cold.

Apparently you can freeze buttermilk and cream as you would freeze water! According to my mom, there is nothing particular to do with it ahead of time, and nothing that she knows of that you can't do with it because it has been frozen. I guess I just make things too hard sometimes...

Here you go makes 4 pints
2 pounds green beans
2 3/4 cp water
2 3/4 cp vinegar
1/4 cp pickling (kosher) salt
4 cloves garlic
fresh dill
dried red pepper (optional)

Wash beans, remove ends. I snap them into about 1 inch pieces because I am incapable of standing them up neatly in the jar. Have your jars and lids getting hot in boiling water, Bring the water, vinegar and salt to a boil, add beans and cook just 2 minutes (no longer). Remove beans with slotted spoon to boil or paper towel. Keep the liquid. Put one garlic clove, some dill sprigs, and the pepper if you use it in each hot jar, add beans, then add vingar mix. Process in hot water bath 10 minutes.

What do you do with beets?

Jetbrey-
I did Green Beans this morning and still need to freeze the blueberries my kids and I picked yesterday. I also put away the beets and beans I canned earlier this week, and began the process of rotating anything I have left from last year to the front of my shelves.
If you would, please pass on your recipe for dilly beans. My husband tried them for the first time yesterday and now wants to can some, and I said I wasn't picking any more beans. The things we do for love. (LOL)

I would love to have a day again with each of my parents (both deceased) to ask them all the things I wish I'd asked them!
What are you all canning/freezing this week? I bought cukes, dill, garlic, and green beans at the farmers market this morning and will make pickles and dilly beans sometime this week...

Yes, Welcome! I was talking to my sister (13yrs older, like a different family, really, because she went off to college when I was 3, at 16), and she tells me our mom used to freeze cream to make ice cream later. Hmmm. I guess I shoulda asked my own momma! LOL! I'll let you all know what she says...

Hi and welcome. I really don't know anything about saving cream or buttermilk, but if I run across something, I will let you know. Once again, welcome.

Hello all,
I just found you all today-cool team. I made zucchini pickles about 30 years ago, but they weren't very good, so I didn't save the recipe. I've never frozen cream or buttermilk, but can buy it at our local farmers market, so I'd certainly be interested in knowing too if it can be done.
I live In Wisconsin, love to make pickles and jams, but have a teeny yard, so I buy produce either at the farmers markets or grocery store.

I like to cut it into medallions, blanch it for 2 minutes, freeze it on a cookie sheet, then transfer to a ziploc. It will store through the winter, then I steam it and serve it as a side dish.

I think with the frozen cantalope, you just have to eat it partly frozen, or use it in smoothies. It's just not going to be the same thawed as it was before being frozen.

Those are great ideas for the squash! I also know people who freeze the fried squash, but personally I find the breading gets soft and isn't very good. But that's not huge...

Here are a few things I do with yellow squash, as I am gifted with so much I never need to grow my own.

Slice it thin, lightly sprinkle it with garlic salt, and dry into chips. You can flavor it with just about anything, so they never get too old.

They are good chopped into any egg based breakfast casserole, and add a little color to homemade pasta sauces.

And, like anyone around here, (SC) you can lightly flour them and FRY them! That's the best way.

As a squash they dehydrate very well, and I have even tried squash pickles, although I have no idea where to get that kind of recipe. I know someone who will even fry them and then freeze them, so they are a heat-n-eat when she needs them. I hope this helps. :)

Any tips for a large crop of canteloupe? It freezes, but doesn't thaw too well.

This is a thread to ask and tell what to do with things we want to "put up" that are hard or unusual to try and save. I thought of it because a freind of mine (who raises chickens) has a TON of eggs right now. A lot of people don't know you can freeze fresh eggs. The best way is to scramble them and put them in a suitable freezer container. This is actually what restaraunts do, they have frozen eggs in a cardboard carton. imo, they are not very good for just cooking and eating if they have been frozen, but they work great for baking and other cooking needs. So, that's how you save 40 dozen eggs!
