We are lucky to live in an area of great farm land that provides plenty of produce this time of year. This morning we woke before dawn to make an early trip to the weekly farmer's market. I needed canning supplies.
I purchased half a bushel of plum tomatoes for pasta sauce
3/4 bushel of regular beefsteak tomatoes for chili sauce and salsa
Here you see my sweet pickles on day 8 of their 12 day process.
I am reminded of a childhood rhyme
A canner exceedingly canny
One morning remarked to his Granny
"A canner can can
Anything a canner can can
But a canner can't can a can, can he?"
May your day involve 'plenty'.
You should come and shop in my garden. The price is right. Pickled beets to be made here next week. Beans and swiss chard to freeze.
I'm not sure I"m going to get to my canning this year - too bad - I'm out of pickles and sauce, but I'm also out of time...
You had fun!
This year I decided to grow tomatoes in some EarthBoxes in my backyard and decided to learn how to can. So yesterday I had FUN! Imagine..me learning how to can at 64!!!
