Today I am taking part in Kitchen Cupboard Thursdays over at The Gardener of Eden’s blog. Today Robin is having a Thanksgiving addition with some mouth watering pies. Make sure you check it out.
As for what is going on in my Kitchen cupboard this week...well not Thanksgiving since we Canadians celebrated it back in October ...but POTATOES!
Out of all the potatoes harvested from the garden this year I ended up with two small boxes of baby potatoes.
The largest potato is about 2.5 inches in diameter and the smallest about 1inch. Now I figured that these would be great as canned potatoes. I have never made canned potatoes, but we use to buy some when we went fishing for shore lunches and they were always yummy. The problem was that I could fit about 7 potatoes into one 1L jar and then the rest were just a bit too big so I would only get two or three in the jar. I decided to cube up the bigger ones and save the wee ones for either canning later or frying up in a nice creamy dill sauce..lol
This is my finished product. 5 x 1L jars of canned potatoes. I used my pressure canner to process these and I think they ended up losing a bit of water, but they turned out pretty good. Santa says "YUMMY"...lol
Now besides frying up canned potatoes with onions, mushrooms and butter I am not sure what else to use them for. If anyone has some suggestions I would love to hear them.
I hope everyone south of the border is having a lovely Thanksgiving!! Since the weather here is still wonderful i am still doing that happy dance. They are calling for +7C on Sunday....WOW
