At least that is what all the blogs are trying to convince me. My CSA wraps up in a few weeks and the final boxes feel like an inventory reduction sale with loads of zucchini, peppers and radishes. Currently there are 10 zucchini in my kitchen and I have already made 5 batches of zucchini bread. I am not sure the exact measurement of a peck, but my crisper drawer is giving Peter Pipper a run for his money on peppers. Here is the challenge I have given myself, for no other reason than to make my own life more difficult, make and can condiments. My list of homemade condiments includes: salsa, pickled radish, zucchini relish and sweet pepper relish. Should be interesting. I have been studying recipes on-line and in books for the2 days, just have to make one last grocery run to get all the necessary items, then the canning marathon begins! I will chronicle the chaos in a future blog post. Yikes.
Please feel free to share any canning ideas or recipes that might help with my surplus.
