My tomatoes are ripening thick and fast. I have to admit that tomato products are my favorite things to can. Perhaps it's because they make the whole house smell so good.
Saturday I canned 20 pints of salsa. That isn't quite a full years supply of salsa for us, but I would like to make some pizza/spaghetti sauce and tomato juice next, and if I have enough tomatoes I might make more salsa.
My husband is not fond of salsa that has been thickened with clear gel or other thickeners so I thicken mine by cooking it down. Saturday morning I started chopping veggies and by noon I had a huge stock pot full. I started it simmering and cooked it for almost four hours. By then the house smelled heavenly!!
What are you canning at your house?
