Freezing Yellow Squash

Yellow squash also blanches at three minutes in boiling water and then three in ice water before freezing. If you grate the squash instead of chopping it you only needed to blanche for 1/2 minutes.

There is a LOT of really good information about blanching all kids of vegetables here.

A Note On Pasta


(picture blurred to protect the guilty)

Once you open a box of it, use the glass jar to put the rest in. It stays fresh and keeps bugs out, etc. If that’s too much work, at least turn the box around and close it as well as possible so the next person pulling out the box knows that it is open and to be careful so it doesn’t spill.

Grinding Chilies

My son was having an allergic reaction to the chilies hanging in my kitchen. I had to grind them all at once and stash them in the freezer. Besides the well, duh, of not touching your eyes or mouth, watch what goes up your nose when you breathe. Then your nose starts running and you end up with a Jolie-esque upper lip.

Everyone I know will be getting homemade chilie mix for christmas this year. For those of you on my list this will be replacing they woefully un-gi-friendly malted hot chocolate mix, sorry! Fair warning!

Still playing with the ratios for the chilie mix but you know I’ll post when I figure it out!
