This is by far the largest blueberry inventory I have ever had..... 2 quarts went into the freezer, 3 cups will be going into a dessert, Blueberry Galette with Lemon Ice Cream, and I am not sure yet about the rest.
Look at this little piece of gorgeousness! An heirloom dwarf glad from Old House Gardens, Boone maybe?? Anyway, the darlings are so pricey I only ordered one bulb, but it is stunning. I love the blue pollen against the red.
I came to the realization tonight while making bread and butter pickles that I made a crucial error when making the zucchini pickles. I taste tested one while still warm and found it unappealing and salty. Yeah, that's because the pickling salt that was meant to only be used in a water soak went into the liquid pickling mixture instead. OOPS! Not sure if this will affect the whole acidity balance for storage/spoilage.....hoping not! After perusing more recipes they will taste more like a dill (which I can only stomach while preggers), luckily it was only 1/4 pickling salt for something like 6 pints of pickles. Should I chuck these babies or risk food poisoning, lol!?!
