I spent most of today canning farmer’s market tomatoes and a crisper full of cucumbers from my garden. I ended up with 9 quarts of crushed tomatoes and 9 pints of bread and butter pickle chips.
Now, I’m very tired. I just tried to put my dirty laundry in the chest freezer. Note to self: Don’t can and do laundry on the same day.
A neighbor came over to check out my pressure canner while I was working on the tomatoes. We’re going to have a canning party and either collaborate on one big batch of something or work on complimentary items — possibly beer mustard and sauerkraut.
