We are also planning on strawberry and jalapeno jam and blueberry jam with maybe some spices, real ginger , lemon and lemon peel.
I had thought to include peach jam but we still have some from last year.
I went to the Raymore farmers' market for " canners " and veggies.... lots of samples were available and I came home with a yummy loaf of bread and lamb brats from Hi Ho Sheep Farm .
I have bought their lamb products before but not brats . Plus all the produce we needed..
Now I have to get all my "equipment" together and jars and lids and.... to take to Robb's . Then add all the stuff he has.
Our canning session is small compared to my sister-in-law's Mother. Rose was from a large Italian family in Geneva, NY. Her garden had 150 tomato plants each year and she had a second kitchen in the basement where it was cool and "boy, did she can!" And cook!!
Will try to add pictures next time!! Well... the pictures didn't go where I planned but here's our first of 2017's canning... blueberry, strawberry jalapeno and tomato sauce.
I had 10 tomatoes left so this morning I did a quick peel, cook, immersion blend etc. I ended up with 2.5 pints of spaghetti sauce with onions, peppers and garlic !
