My mother in law was in town and I decided:
"Hey! She can pass some wisdom to me!"
So I for some crazy moment thought:
"Canning would be fun! I've never tried it!"
It was a TON of work!
My cousin came over as well to help out and join in.
I will admit though, even with how hard it was, I can see
myself becoming obsessed with it and canning weekly or monthly from now on.
I also love how pretty the cans are:
We did applesauce and a wonderful tomato basil sauce.
The recipe for the tomato basil can be found here.
It makes for an excellent base or used on its own.
The applesauce was pretty basic: apples, sugar, lemon juice.
My cousin also brought some of her blue ribbon winning jam:
I think I might need more shelving in the pantry soon......
