What to do with all the zucchini the garden produces each year? You can let it go to waste, or you can preserve it, so the crisp taste of your garden can be with you long after the season is over. The challenge for most people who garden is how to preserve your harvest, so it can be enjoyed and till next year’s harvest. Zucchini has been a particular challenge and my wife has so many useful zucchini recipes, she could write a book.
Zucchini is the most bountiful vegetable in our garden alongside our tomatoes and potatoes. Zucchini is so versatile, but it is also seasonally bound unlike the potatoes, which can store in a dark space all winter long. My wife and I were trying to think of ways to keep the harvest longer in our pantry and all answers lead to canning and preserving.
The Zesty Zucchini Pickle recipe is just one of our remedies for our prolific zucchini production. Join my wife Krista on this canning adventure in which she demonstrates how to make her Zesty Zucchini Pickles and helps you to think of new ways to preserve the flavor of your garden.
I also want to include some links to Ball’s Complete Book of Home Preserving that Krista uses to help you in your canning adventures. I am going off the beaten path to share links to bookstores that are not Amazon. I figure we did not purchase our book from there and Amazon does not need any more help in dominating the market, so why not support a different bookstore.
