I was all about preserving today.  Something about this time of year just makes me want to preserve all the produce left in our garden. 

I picked all the tomatoes, since they won't ripen now, and they are all ready to make a sweet green tomato relish.

And I used up the last of the cucumbers to make a cucumber pickle.  It tastes much nicer than it looks (I had to try a little bit just to make sure) and it was delicious.
Both of these recipes come from The Constance Spry Cookery book, which was published in 1958.  It is a fantastic reference for all sorts of recipes.  If I ever need to know how to hang a duck, I know where to find out.

Head over to Natural Suburbia for more creativity


  1. You've got me eager to get growing tomatoes! Looking forward to the harvest...

  2. I love preserving food too, it is such a great way to use up the bounty.
