What I did over the Labor Day Weekend.

I learned to make bread. Who knew making homemade bread could be so easy? I made three loaves of bread.

 I also experimented with pickling peppers. That is green bell, yellow bell, purple bell and jalapeno pepper. In two weeks I will try the peppers and if I like them I will post the recipe.

 Peppers, peppers and more peppers become....                               pickled peppers.

My son, nephew, and I picked blackberries. (big kid son, little one nephew)

These two buckets of blackberries became 10 1/2 cups of juice. I made 10 half-pints of blackberry jelly and froze 5 1/2 cups of juice for later use.

What did you do for the Labor Day weekend?
