You Say Toe-May-Toe ...

No, that's not me on the packaging. From Costco, these held the 30 pounds of tomatoes the husband and I just turned into 12 quarts of canned tomatoes. I am looking forward to being able to make spaghetti sauce using something other than tomatoes from the store. I'm not sure how the husband felt about helping, but lifting large pots of boiling water between the sink and the stove or vice versa is not for the faint of heart or shoulder. So, older son and/or I have now canned salsa, bread and butter pickles, strawberry jam, and tomatoes. I think I'll rest on my laurels for a while. There's but one more day to this long weekend, and I plan to do something other than canning.

  1. You're really on a roll! I'll probably do one more batch of rhubarb jam. And if the blueberries are ready (they're running behind this year), we'll go picking on Friday and I'll do blueberry jam next weekend. But beyond that (unless we decide to you-pick raspberries), I'll be done canning for a bit until the garden starts putting out cucumbers and jalapeƱos and beets and tomatoes.
