Preserving Summer - Conservare l'estate

I savor summer's flavors year-round by canning fresh fruits and vegetables from our garden
The tomato crop seems to be abundant and our pear tree is delightful.

There were so many pears that I decided to preserve some in jars.

Pickled vegetables provide a taste of summer all year long.  Great as snacks, appetizers.  Also great to enhance meat taste.
