Dallas Farmers Market

I had to make a trip into north Dallas yesterday for soap supplies and since
The Dallas Farmers Market is on the way we decided to stop.


Lots of local greens, onions, south Texas grapefruit,
farm fresh eggs and honey.
Also plenty of the more exotic fare, pineapples, mangoes and papayas.

Well needless to say I parted with a little green!
We came home with 25lbs. of tomatoes, 14 pineapples, 10lbs. of oranges,
5lbs. of grapefruit, several bell peppers, (yellow and green) and, (I'm not saying how many) onions.
Guess what we're doing tomorrow?
Stay Tuned for canning day!!!!

Till next time,

The produce looks wonderful. I can imagine what it looks like in person. Do you chop the onion and bells for the freezer, or do you can them, too?

You've got your work cut out for you, that's for sure!

Nancy, Well, yes it is happy canning.

Tami, Sunny and windy today with a high of about 58 degrees, perfect for laundry on the line. Sorry you guys are cold. Been there done that!!!

Thanks for posting the recipes Kim, I will try them both.
I am making spaghetti sauce and a stewed tomato mixture to can up, so the bell peppers and onion will go into the pots also. I saved a few of the peppers for a tossed green salad. I do have recipes to can the onions and peppers but I don't think I'll do that this time. I can puree the stewed tomatoes, cook down a little and use for pizza or leave as is for chili.

Water is boiling so I have to get back to the pressure canner. Ya'll have a warm and comforting evening.
