Food Excess from your Garden - Living Lightly column
By Joan Jones, Trust for Nature Covenanter. Many of us have had bumper crops of fruit and vegetables this year, but what to do with the excess? We’ve made jams, jellies, sauces, relishes and soups. We’ve bottled, dried, pickled and frozen to such an extent the freezer and pantry are full. We’ve loaded up friends and family with so much produce it’s become embarrassing. We’ve bartered with neighbours, exchanging green peppers for grapes, green beans for radishes.
