We're going to be at a concert tonight, so I'm doing a midday post.
Well, I think the fall weather has officially arrived. It started pouring last night and has been raining ever since - my silly coastal kids were so happy that they were running around outside in their pajamas and raincoats while I was frantically gathering up the onions and laundry. So what to do when you're trapped inside? Catch up on the canning that you haven't been doing! I made and canned a batch of salsa with the ripe tomatoes I picked this morning. It was my first ever attempt at canned salsa, and while I altered the recipe quite a bit to suit my taste, I'm still not sure it's exactly right. I guess I'll have to wait and see how it is with chips. I canned the rest of the tomatoes too, but I only ended up with 3 quarts. There are lots more out there that are getting close though, so I guess I'll be canning some more in the coming days.
