Scored a number of ears of corn-on-the-cob today so some of my early evening will be filled with blanching, bagging and putting in the freezer. Fresh corn on the cob in the middle of February is pretty hard to beat!

Whats a lug weigh?

Does anyone remember an old joke that was prompted by , "What's a hen weigh?"

It was so funny it blew a mental socket.

PS....Bubba has asked me to set up a thead for ''Turtle and Snail" jokes. I've found a few jokes that keep repeating themselves...1 Wheeee... 2 It happened so fast.....3 What was that all about?

Bubba seems really enamored with this....go figure!

So if someone wants to create this new thread, go ahead and I'll keep an eye on it. If someone comes up with the most amazing snail/turtle joke of all time...I'll make sure gifts are rewarded and I will personally do something....

I crack myself up!

But honestly....I will do something....It will have to be a surprise.
To me too!

I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'

I looked up the weight of a lug on Google and it's approximately between 17 and 20 pounds in a crate or cardboard box. I foresee a long day in the kitchen when I bring those home.

A snail joke should be worth it's weight in salt...........or should that be a slug joke? Tongue

I think that I can honestly say, that I've never heard a snail/turtle joke (I guess I've been too sheltered, lol). I'm interested in seeing what is posted.

That is A LOT of maters Brutus. Are you canning them without seasoning? Do you blanch them to remove the skins?

That is a season's worth, maybe two, of spaghetti and/or pizza sauce!

Well, unfortunately we missed cherry season by 2 weeks or so. And we weren't able to make the fruit loop. But we did manage to get some apples and Walla Walla sweet onions. I'll eat the apples but we might caramelize the onions and try canning them. Caramelized sweets on a burger.... nomnomnom. Yummy!

And then I've got blackberries to get made into jam. We always have waaaaay too many even with the 'pacas chowing down on the ones they can get to. Anybody want a jar?

Peach pickles today!
Its a recipe that is new to me, so I am hoping its worth the effort to make them!
Preliminary taste tests show promise, crossing fingers.....

RE: What are you canning/pickling/preserving today?
Hello... I'm new here... hope you don't me joining the conversation!

I'm making and preserving my hot salsa as we speak. Yesterday was another several jars of dill pickles! Tomorrow... I need to do something with all those pole beans in my yard!

BTW... does anyone have a good recipe for spicy pickled eggs? My chickens are outdoing themselves and I need to find a way to keep all those eggs! I tried doing them with the same brine and spices as I did my pickles in and they turned out okay, but ... not quite right. Any suggestions?
