Home canning

Post by Spike188 »

This past week has been on the non negotiable bucket list. Major customer issues were not going to take priority over canning.

wild grapes clusters from our side yard should have been clipped 4 days ago but work got in the way. A lot off the clusters started dropping grapes or were beginning to shrivel.
This weeks goal us canning 30-40 quarts of tomatoes.

Looks like a tasty addition to the pantry shelves... I was talking with :wife: about childhood memories of autumn walks with my Dad and brothers, foraging for wild apples at a local nature park, coming home with knapsacks full, and my parents putting up a year's worth of apple jam... If the people from the botanical gardens caught you doing that now :109: they'd have words to say about that... :107:

30 quart of stewed tomatoes and 4 quarts of juice. Now it's time to make a customer happy while the kitchen cools off.

Yesterday the :wife: and I finished up the last of the tomatoes . Our crop was not that great , but a local farmer I do a lot of work for gave us loads of "culls" (non saleable do to blemishes) tomatoes, onions, peppers over the last couple of weeks . From that we made 150 quarts of homemade V6 juice and 30 pints of marinara sauce . The Outlaws are up today to help her with pear jam and corn relish . I have to pick apples for sauce. And then there is the grapes :headbash: . There is a bumper crop and I don't drink wine . :violin:
