My mother was very thrifty, with a husband and five children to feed. We raised a garden every year and nothing went to waste! At the first and last of the growing season, there often wasn't enough of any one thing to fix for all of us, so she would use whatever vegetables there were on the vines and mix them together. Here is a recipe she used, and one of my favorites!
