What I Bought

It's the height of summer here.  Hot and humid days are upon us.  Though I do not like this weather one bit, it does make me want to make jam.  I bought 8 quarts of blueberries at the Amish market and turned them into some blueberry/lime jam.  We ate a bunch of them plain too. Is it hot where you are?

I bought 4 large bags of bing cherries too.  Cherries are my favorite fruit.

Everyone was selling Ancient Sweets at the market.

Fresh beets which I pickled.

And more corn.  The corn is wonderful this year.  Are you eating corn on the cob yet?

I put my pumpkins out on my cooktop.

These tomatoes are from my garden. We are eating tomatoes with every meal.

I bought this rolling pin from and Amish guy that makes these and cutting boards.

I roasted the peppers.

If you have never made these, you should give them a try.  The are delicious.  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2011/08/turkish-roasted-peppers.html
