food, not cards, lol! I having been canning. I never have before. My DD got me interested and I started to research and became intrigued. The first thing I attempted was grape jelly. It is so easy and DH likes peanut butter and grape jelly.
Then I made some homemade salsa and processed that. I like that I can adjust thespices to our taste. Here is the salsa.
Friday I went to my daughter's house and we shopped at the Amish farmer's market for fresh fruits and vegetables. She is very lucky that the market is just a couple of miles from her. I am hoping she will decide to have her own garden next year. She certainly has the room and she also has forced labor, ahem, I mean two helpful children to share the work.
I got these peaches from the market and made some peach preserves. They are so good this time of year.I wound up eating two of the peaches. I just couldn't resist them. Because of that, I didn't have quite enough for the recipe so I had to send Don out to the farm stand to get a few extra peaches, lol.
I also made a big pot of beef vegetable soup and put it up in quart jars for us. I don't like canned soups so it will be nice to have these on hand. One more photo, the vegetable soup.
My next project is to put up some potatoes, peeled and cubed, ready to cook. I have about 25 lbs of red potatoes sitting in the kitchen waiting for me. If you are still reading, thanks for indulging my enthusiasm and looking at the photos. I'll keep you posted on my adventures in canning and I'll have some cards to post tomorrow.
