End of the Garden

 Our garden has finally come to an end.  We have been really lucky to get as much out of it as we did considering how hot and dry it has been this summer.  The bell peppers were the last to go, so I decided to try something new.  I have a new recipe book on preserving and canning and I found a recipe for roasted and canned bell peppers.  I thought might as well give it a try.  Here is the first batch of peppers roasting away.

Here they are roasted and cooling.
Cooled, seeded and sliced.
The first two cans of peppers!!  This was really easy to do, time consuming.  You had to wait for the peppers to cool before you could remove the skins, which took a while.  After removing the skin, seeds and slicing them, you add olive oil, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.  Very easy.  Would definitely do this again.
