My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Freezing Blackberries, Blueberries, etc.

Finally, it's time for fresh berries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are normally what I freeze. I only freeze berries right off the vine. Wash berries well and pat dry with paper towels; spread in single layer on a large rimmed sheet pan that will fit in your freezer. When berries are frozen transfer to freezer bags and return to freezer. This will allow you to remove as many or as few as you need.

I freeze gallons of various berries each year to make pies, cobblers, jams and jellies, etc.

Throughout the summer and fall I hope to provide you with lots of wonderful canning, freezing and dehydrating ideas and recipes.

  1. flash freezing is so quick and easy! I love this for berries, and used this technique after we picked berries at Huber's in May.
