Did a very satisfying clean-out of the crisper drawers tonight.

squash:  Andy found a pickling recipe he wanted to try.  He also cut some into rounds, sprinkled them with seasoning, and threw them into the dehydrator.  We’ll see what comes of either of these experiments.  Neither of us particularly care for summer squash, so it’s a race every summer to find ways to use them before they rot.

We still have probably 6 patty-pans to dispense with.  I may succeed in talking Andy into trying squash tamales or burritos or something.  Been looking for an excuse to get him to try tamales for awhile now.

yogurt:  I had 2 jars kicking around the fridge for a little too long, so i set a strainer over a bowl and put it into the fridge.  Should have cheese tomorrow.  May also pick up more milk at the market to make fresh yogurt, and possibly some fresh paneer.  Haven’t done homemade paneer in awhile.

cabbage:  I’m trying my hand at sauerkraut.  Again.  After shredding, had about a pound of cabbage (fresh as of tuesday!) so sprinkled it with a little less than a tablespoon of kosher salt.  Packed it into my crock and weighted it.  We’ll see how this goes.  Every year i try cabbage, and every year i mess it up somehow.

I think next i’ll try turning my cabbage into kimchi.
