Been a chilly couple of days in New York. Absolutely beautiful sunny days with a chill in the air that makes you think about Autumn. My garden is finally starting to produce red tomatoes. I had more cucumbers than I knew what to do with and made many pints of pickles to get us through the winter. I cannot buy pickles in the store anymore as I am spoiled from eating ones from cucumbers grown in my gardens.
I was getting a little worried that I might not be canning sauce this year. Whenever I think about canning tomatoes I am reminded of my paternal grandmother and great- great grandmother. They were two ladies who preserved the fruits of their gardens and passed that knowledge down to future generations. I cannot think of fall without thinking of sauce simmering on the stove.
