runes are done!
We’ve canned, dehydrated, cordialed, juiced, buttered, sold, bartered and gleaned until the we’re blue in the face.
Final total for our pantry:
4 gallons dehydrated.
5 gallons juice, canned in quart jars.
4 gallons frozen for baking or snacking.
2 gallons cordial.
5 1/2 pints plum butter.
I can’t count how many we have actually eaten, fresh and out of the dehydrator, and I have no idea what the sold, bartered and gleaned prunes turned into for other pantries. But I do know we sure enjoyed the bounty. I hope all this lasts until the next large Italian prune crop :)
