Elderberries

Day 123 od 365

It’s been another long day of putting up food. I love harvest, but it can be a tough time when I working on my classes and also putting up so much food. I am thankful for all of it, but the days are long.

Today, it was more sauce. We have made so much sauce this year that I am almost out of jars. Thankfully, I had a friend give me some extra jars this year, or I would not have had enough for today’s batch. So far this week, we have put up two or three batches of sauce (it all runs together), corn, carrots, and I baked quite a bit of zucchini bread and muffins to freeze.

Tomorrow, I must tackle the elderberries. For the first time in two years, the birds left some elderberries for me. I have always made syrup in the past, but I would like to try to make some jelly this year. That will be my mission tomorrow, but I am a bit nervous. I have never made elderberry jelly before, but I am determined, as I am convinced it will be so beautiful. I mean, just look at these berries. The jelly has to be pretty, right?
