Having already-chopped onions (& peppers) is a wonderful timesaver!
A documentation of my preservation and preparation of local foods as I work through the seasons. This will serve as a reference tool for me in the future and as a sharing guide for family and friends...and anyone else interested. Hopefully, I can offer some useful methods, tips and recipes to share with everyone--be they novice or pro--and encourage them to join me in the exciting world of preserving and cooking with local foods.

What a deal!
Got a deal from my farmer that I couldn't refuse: free onions and peppers because they had minor imperfections or small soft spots and couldn't be sold at market. I came home from the farm with about 50-60 onions and as many large (huge) peppers. Did lots of chopping, freezing, and dehydrating this past weekend (crying my way through the onions). I can cross onions and peppers off my list of foods I need stored for the Winter.
