Wednesday, August 27


We bought two large boxes of peaches over the weekend for canning. Sunday was an adventure. I gathered and prepared for the chore. I couldn't find the blancher. I couldn't find the rack for the pressure cooker. I decided I would hand dip and blanch them. They weren't quite ripe enough so I only canned 4 quarts. The adventure awaits! Hopefully they'll be ripe enough the next couple of days because I have cucumbers to pick up Friday for Mustard Pickles and two large boxes of tomatoes Saturday! I will probably just can the tomatoes and in a few more weeks get some Romas for sauce. Tis the season!!

Boy that layout just pops from your blog page...I think it may be my love of the color orange. I am not much of a "canner." But my MIL and SIL are doing a few things.
