As for vegetables, you should pay attention to garlic, herbs and peas. Garlic is a great base for making green borscht dressing and garlic pasta.

Zucchini should not be forgotten. In mid- and late June, feel free to start canning zucchini caviar or lettuce.

Apricots ripen in July and make delicious jams, jams, and compotes. In addition, the fruit can be dried as apricots and added to baked goods or desserts.

Zucchini, which canning continues, is joined by eggplants. Traditionally, they are canned in slices or circles, making salads and caviar.
What to can in August?
August is considered the richest and most generous month, when almost all fruits and vegetables ripen.
First of all, sweet peppers are canned and made into lecho, pickled and leavened cucumbers, the same applies to tomatoes. By the way, tomatoes can be not only covered - they make a delicious paste, ketchup and lecho.
By mid- to late August the beans ripen, which are traditionally frozen or canned on their own and in this form added to salads or snacks. Also ripe are carrots, which can be grated, frozen, and used in borscht or soups.
Speaking of fruit, the apple season continues with the addition of pears and peaches. Again, they are delicious to add to compotes, jam, or just dried.
And where's that without watermelons. So it's a good time to close a compote, juice or kvass. Some experienced hostesses even can such fruit on their own.
