[make] surplus veggies
But before the tomato boom, it was yellow squash and zucchini. With spring onions and a few green peppers matured, I managed some wonderful squash relish inspired by Carolyn's post on Cooking for My Captain. I went monotone with the yellow squash, yellow bell pepper and sweet onion relish turning out wonderfully.
I attempted both sweet and dill pickles. The sweet looked awfully pretty with the addition of peppers and onions, an idea from this pin. I used my grandmothers old school recipe for the dill version (above). Half vinegar, half water, a pinch of sugar and a pinch of salt. Add fresh dill from the garden and slice the cucumbers a little thicker.
Now back to the garden and on to more green beans.
