so we visited the farm to pick our vegetables and brought them home. the tomatoes were so good that i had an idea. why not go pick more and can them? i got a whole bushel for $9. bought my cans and yesterday started the job. this process is new to me so...... i was slightly nervous.
brian helped me boiling the tomatoes and peeling the skins. after a very hot afternoon in carleen's gourmet kitchen. (canning when i get home won't be nearly as posh in my digs.)
i ended up with this
after worrying all night that i would wake up this morning and press on my lids and they would pop. i will tell you we had success not a single popping lid! yeah! i only got through half of my bushel yesterday so today i will can the other half. hopefully i will have some tasty tomatoes this fall for spaghetti sauces, salsa and more.
