Hopefully the tomatoes are better this year then they were last. The season wasn't so great and so I wasn't able to preserve tomatoes.
2 years ago, I attempted to can for the first time ever and we were all quite happy with the results. As you can see from the pictures, I went right to town!
Relish, salsa, bread & butter pickles, sliced pickles, regular pickles, pears, peaches, lots of canned tomatoes, green beans, yellow beans, chickpeas, kidney beans (red and white), corn, apple butter, applesauce and pickled beets. This doesn't include all of the freezer jams, frozen strawberries or other goodies I had in deep freeze!
Everything tasted so much fresher than store bought. The only thing I won't repeat is canning fruit. Not a fan!
So far this year all I've managed to get done are various beans, peas, freezer jam and this relish. Now I'm just praying that it will be a good season for tomatoes, so I can buy a couple of bushels from the grocer and get started!
