After a trip to see my grandparents Friday (and a deal scored on a half-bushel of tomatoes) and a trip to the market I was ready to go:
9 pints of salsa
8 half-pints of sweet relish
6 pints of pasta sauce
6 half-pints of tomato jam
1 pint of pizza sauce
1 jar of salsa for the fridge
1 jar of tomato jam for the fridge
1 container of diced bell pepper for the freezer
Dinner: BBQ chicken with corn zucchini and tomato salad.
Also, my mom scored a box of heirloom tomato seconds at the market for free, so I plan on making ketchup with those today and tomorrow!
My kitchen, mid-project. Not too bad, but kind of chaotic!
My friend Lindsey came over for some help with Klezmer music,
and then I put her to work!
(No worries, I fed her dinner also!)
Phew! Next weekend I hope to put up some peaches and crushed tomatoes. And maybe one more batch of salsa...We'll see!
24 weeks and growing!
