A day of firsts
I have officially made my first cucumber harvest of the year and got 3.4lbs/1.46kg of cucumbers.

This is what I plan on doing with most of these. I know its a really big salt shaker isn't it
I also made some Saskatoon berry Jelly. It was my first time every making jelly and I didn't really have a recipe so I just combined a few together. I don't think I used enough liquid pectin. However, we shall see if it sets. If not, seed free ice-cream topping it is. I'm thinking I wont label it till I know for sure...lol
I used my grandmothers chinois (thank you Annie's Granny for giving me the fancy word). I'll be honest I had no idea how to use the thing so I just let common sense or at least my version of common sense do its thing.
I ended up getting 5 jars. I think it tastes pretty darn good and the colouring is nice so there ya go.
On a side note I have been looking up canning recipes for crab apples...since the tree is full of them. I found one for crab apple butter. That might be interesting...maybe
One yet another side note. I still have not been able to rectify being a noreply-comment blogger and it frustrates me to no end. However, this time I did not delete the blog in error..lol
