More preserving of summer's bounty for the winter!

Those apple cucumbers have just kept on coming, so another batch of Alison Holst's Bread and Butter Pickle was on the to-do list today. The recipe is here.  Didn't have quite enough mustard seed or celery seed, so mixed in a small amount of curry powder, because, let's face it, tasteless pickle is an oxymoron and complete waste of time and space. I think it's got quite a kick, this batch!

Also roasted up another pan of tomato sauce, with onion in this lot. The freezer is now looking quite jolly! The small containers are blackberries, blueberries and tomato pizza sauce, and the ice cream containers behind them are full of free-flow cauliflower and broccoli. I'm hoping there will be apple sauce to add to this soon!
