Can it yourself.
Summer vegetable season is here and there are so many delicious options it is difficult to choose a few for your family at the supermarket. Now is the time to stock up and take advantage of those sweet veggie prices. While your kids play outside, make a large batch of your family's favorite soup with all the fresh veggies.
Using a traditional canning technique, you can save the soup for a rainy day (literally). Your family can enjoy all the flavors and nutrients from those fresh veggies months down the road and it makes preparing dinner on those dreary nights a snap.
Jams, jellies, pickles and relishes are other great ways to take advantage of summer produce prices while giving your family great flavor months from now.
