When Bountiful Baskets Gives you Lemons...
This past weekend we got 40lbs of lemons and 40lbs of oranges from our beloved co-op, Bountiful Baskets.
They were beautiful.
We (okay, Sam) spent all of Saturday juicing and freezing orange juice concentrate and juicing and canning lemonade concentrate. Poor Sam got hurt at the end when he spilled the boiling water all over the floor and burned one of his feet pretty bad. That is why we never let the kids in the kitchen when we are canning.
The juice is awesome and the lemonade is so good. Sam spent the week prior canning beans, chili, soup and jam, so we really upped our food storage. We have some chicken coming around the end of the month and I cannot wait. We'll be canning it too.
In a related note, if you have canning supplies you don't want, we want them!
