2017 Pantry Preserved

Sweet corn is long gone, and our garden is finally slowed down between spring/fall planted crops…. Still have some greens, squash, peas, peppers, beets, carrots and beans popping up but for the most part we are fully stocked over here!

So what’s on our shelves and in the freezer? 

I went into this year wanting to try a few new recipes but sticking with only things I knew we’d eat. I don’t like making something then seeing it go to waste so both our taste buds went into consideration as well as what would be most useful for family gatherings, holiday potlucks, gifts, etc. We still have leftover fruit jams in the pantry so I kept sweet preserves to a minimum or only did small batches when I had to. I’m sure I forgot something but for the most part this is a comprehensive list for future reference, maybe more for my own use than anything. I’ll be tracking what gets used up first and that way I can better measure how much we consume and what we liked/didn’t like for next year.
