too many vegetables

Between the CSA and my garden, I have an overabundance of vegetables in the fridge. Besides trying to squeeze in a bunch of veggies at dinnertime, I’ve been processing things for later use as well. So far this year, I’ve frozen a few containers of garlic scape pesto, made pickles, froze peas, and froze swiss chard. The latter two I did last night. I took a chance and didn’t blanch the peas, so we’ll see how that goes. I found one person on the internet saying they didn’t have to be blanched, so I went with that suggestion.

I still have much to do, though. I need to make some freezer pickles and freeze even more vegetables. It seems like a lot of work now, but I won’t be complaining in the winter when I don’t have to go to the store to buy produce.
