The harvest is coming in, and I keep telling myself I won't get into the same position I was in last year. Last year, I filled my freezer. I filled the freezer at work, and I had some things in the freezer at my mom's house (she lives a half hour away). This year, I am attempting to can more items, and just plain use them up.
So, raspberries...I had a big container of them in the freezer, and I need to make room for the vegetables starting to be ready...and we don't really use a lot of frozen raspberries. Solution: stash bash the berries.
We poured it over vanilla ice cream (after it cooled of course) for the most intense raspberry float I have ever tasted. The extra was stored in a mason jar in the fridge for a repeat performance the next day. 4 cups of raspberries was enough for 6 small floats like you see pictured above.
Next year, I think I might boil them without water to make a really concentrated juice, to can, that we can mix into water in the middle of winter for a nice summer reminder.
Gonna link this one up for stash bash over at Crunchy Catholic Momma just for fun, and also to Creative Friday at Natural Suburbia
