So, being the devious person I am, I saw this as a perfect opportunity to snag an unsuspecting victim! One afternoon while she was at my house, I got to talking about how much I've been enjoying canning this summer, how fulfilling it is to see those jars lined up on the shelves and how wonderful it is to feed that food to my husband. *Wink*
Well, she bought it! And I'm so thankful! We've have had so much fun this past week, pickling our lives away. We also went and picked 250 lbs. of peaches that we will get to later this week. It has been so much fun doing all of this with my sister and my best friend as we both look forward to providing for our families.
Here is a small sampling of what we've done so far this year. Pickled Beets, Dill Pickles, Dill Beans, Bread and Butter Pickles, Cherries and Cherry Jam. I'm still hoping this year for some tomatoes to can and make sauce from, pears and apples. If you know of any great deals please let me know!
