The Covid numbers are still up in our area. I ordered groceries online. It rained on our way into town...it is surprising how fast brown dry grass can turn green! I just had one substitution on my grocery order.
We picked up sweet corn from a roadside stand and a box of Colorado peaches that the local Lion's Club sells this time of year. We will peal the peaches slice them up and put some fruit fresh and sugar on them and then vacuum seal the bags and put them in the freezer.
We are doing an experiment with the sweet corn ...Far Guy took off a few of the husks and cut the top and bottom off of the corn and we used our vacuum sealing machine to suck the air out and put them in the freezer. We will see if it tastes like fresh sweetcorn after a few weeks in the freezer!
I read about Pineapple "tea" ...soak and wash your pineapple. Cut the top and bottom off and discard. Then cut up your pineapple as you usually do...saving the scraps and the core...chop them all up and put in a pot with water I used 10 cups of water and a splash of lemon juice. Bring to a boil and let it cook a while...cool and strain. Mix with equal parts 7 Up...it isn't too bad. It is supposed to help people with breathing problems. You can add a bunch of other stuff...cinnamon and honey etc...Far Guy says he wants his straight from now on...no 7 Up for him.
Today Far Guy is making Jambalya following a video by the Cajun Ninja. This is his first attempt at Jambalya...he enjoyed Floyd and Jessica's recipe so much earlier this summer he had to give it a try! Floyd and Jessica live in Louisiana.
Our vacuum sealer is just one from Wally World ...Food Saver is the brand. So far we have used it on meat and cheese. ( We buy a large chunk of cheese and vacuum seal portions for the fridge.) The rolls of bags are a bit expensive but so is freezer burned meat or spoiled cheese.
