It was that time again. .Salsa time!!
Lisa came out Saturday for our annual salsa-makin' marathon!
Of course this year we didn't have ANY frozen tomatos from our gardens. So, she bought 3 cases of salsa-cut tomatos. It just works so much faster. .and you'd never know the difference!
|Lisa and I sporting our empties. .tomato cans that is. .We just needed ONE more can to make a complete pyramid! HA|
I don't think I showed a photo last year of our canner on the gas grill!! Our favorite type of salsa is a knock off of a local Mexican restaurant. We didn't like how it tasted after we had to add enough vinegar to keep us from giving someone botulism. .so we started pressure canning it. Every year we get the instruction manual out to remind us how to work the thing. .and this year there was NO wind. .so the heating up process of the canner was a lot faster and more predictable. We hopped through 6 or 7 batches of that stuff!
The equivalent of 155 pints of delicious home-made with love salsa!! Our family has been through 3 jars since Saturday. .
Come on over and we'll have some chips and salsa!!
On a side note. .Jeremy's grandpa passed from this life right before lunch today! I hope he is enjoying his own mind again!! We'll appreciate your continued prayers for healing and ease of suffering and sadness from those who loved him!
Have a blessed week!
