My stores....

This is more for me then anyone else, but I liked that I blogged about this last year so I could just look back to see what I had canned and if it was enough! This year I have 110 pints of salsa (I only had to buy onions!!!). I planted 8 tomato plants 4 Roma and 4 slicers, but one of the slicers did not make it. I planted 12 green pepper plants and was blessed by the bounty of others for my hot peppers. I have around 42 quarts of grape juice. Once again the bounty of others!!! I did two generous bushels of purple and 7 quarts of white. With a big THANK YOU to Laurie I have 23 pints of apple sauce (glad we did it twice) which is being eaten faster then I thought, so think of all the extra fun we can have next year:) (and 2 quarts of apple pie filling which is almost to pretty to eat.) Went a little crazy on the peaches this year 55 quarts of peaches we just missed having enough last year. 10 quarts of pears. I will give them one more chance, but if they don't improve I don't know if I will do pears again. And I STILL have 14 bottles of pickles. I hope if you do read through this you enjoyed your canning season as much as me:)

Oh baby, I was the canning machine this year!! It just gives you such a sense of accomplishment though. Now I need to rig mine so they don't all just smash and break when the big quake hits. Always something that needs to be done!

I sure did enjoy my canning season. Mostly because it was done with YOU!

It was my first canning experience this year. My ward had a few canning Saturdays. First we made salsa...I got SIX pints for SIX hours of work. Sad huh? Didn't hinder me though, I attended the stewed tomatoes and did about 23 quarts of that. I also canned peaches for the first time! I'm soooo impressed by your homemaking skills. You should post a picture...that's the only reason I can really. I love how they look on my shelf! :)
