Tea Tuesday has rolled around once again. This one finds me taking it easy. It’s one of those days when I don’t feel like doing a whole lot of anything so only the things I must do will get done. A day like that is nice to have once in a while. I’ve worked hard canning this week and will start again tomorrow. Today I chill.
Blueberries are in season in Mississippi. I love them just about any way they can be fixed. This afternoon I am indulging in hot homemade biscuits covered with a generous amount of sorghum molasses and fresh blueberries. The combination was an experiment last week…and a do-over today. I’ve paired the blueberry biscuits with a mug of strong black tea…nothing could be finer.
Some of the fruits of my labors the past several days…
I’ve canned a five gallon bucket of Roma tomatoes…some with fresh basil and some with hot, red peppers. Later this week I plan on canning two more bucketfuls.
I also turned about 10 pounds of cucumbers into lime sweet pickles. Tomorrow I will begin the process of making more pickles. I’ve ordered 15 pounds of cucumbers for tomorrow and will begin the process of pickling them. Next week I will pick up a 20 lb. box of cucumbers and will go into over-drive. I am the official pickle maker of our family. No one wants to buy sweet pickles anymore. These are wonderfully crisp and are just plain good.

Until next time…
