Canning Season

blogphotos 022

I went to Julie’s yesterday and picked tomatoes and grapes. (God bless you Julie and thank you!! – my brown thumb just doesn’t produce much produce!) Then I came home and canned 4 and a half quarts of spaghetti sauce, and 20 jelly jars of grape jelly. Then I cleaned the kitchen. Then I fell into bed and slept a good sleep. I still have to remove the rings, and wipe the jars down but I’m NOT going to touch them until this evening. So far, everything “tinked” - “tink” it has to be one of the most musical sounds in the world. Now it is on to some more apples and this weekend will be a marathon pear-canning session. Tis the season to be busy!!!

I agree with you about the "tink!" I miss canning, I haven't done it for a few years. It seems like with my kids almost grown and working at a "real" job, I just don't have the time. I certainly miss it. I say every year I'm going to do it, but... I do have some apples that are crying out to become applesauce and apple butter, though. So maybe one day next week.

You're welcome Kim. It's great to have more then I can use and be able to share it all with you and your family.
