A good all day soaker. and do I wish I had some water butts! With the size of our roof, could save thousands of gallons . . .
So am making a batch of chili with some of my too hot egyptian/walking onions. They are so small it took about 2 dozen. and finishing up last year’s garlic. About 6 pounds of fresh ground beef and pork, the onions, garlic, 3 cans of commercial tomatoes, pepper, salt, chili powder, and 2 pints of beans. WAY WAY WAY too much garlic. So rummaged through the freezer and found a couple of packages of meat from 2010 that I’ll thaw and grind tomorrow to extend the chili and dilute the garlic. Yes, there is some canning in my future. a cool weekend is a good time to get it done, so its ready during a busy winter season.
