It’s so popular that many Americans may be better acquainted with its out of season version made with canned cream-style corn.

The garden is still producing and time needs to be spent on turning some of the bounty into things that can be enjoyed during the winter months. I have had the dehydrator going every day this last week drying apples, peaches and berries, cherry tomatoes and potatoes.
