I have been enjoying the fall weather and continuing to do some canning since I last posted. Today I am finishing up some pickled figs. Our tree has produced so many figs it is ridiculous! I am completely amazed at how much one little tree can put on! There are still little ones growing too!
A week or two ago I made some chili sauce using a recipe from my Great Grandmother Empey. Now that is some delicious chili sauce!
Before that it was grapes. I am looking forward to drinking that home-canned grape juice this winter. Yum yum! We have a couple different varieties of grapes, concord and a lighter variety. You can see the two side by side in same jar in the picture.
Since the weather has been cooler I have been doing some baking as well. Nate loves ginger cookies so I made him a batch. I have to admit that it was my first time baking ginger cookies.
Today is Miss E’s birthday! So she is the recipient of my first ever hand-carved stamp. She is OBSESSED with the band, One Direction! So I made her a “1D” stamp. I hope she likes it!
I hope everyone is enjoying the last little bit of fall clean-up. What a beautiful season!
