true love

I have wanted to do this for a long time.
I have stood and watched as others did this without me.
I have sometimes tried to help, but ultimately went home empty handed.
But finally it was my turn, my chance to grab a piece of the glory,
And I did it!
I canned my own tomatoes!
12 beautiful shinny quarts to be exact.
and I love them!
Is that weird?

What is your favorite produce to can?


  1. This year my favorite was peach salsa. Mmmm...

  2. Oh! That sounds great! I am canning peaches on Wednesday, I will have to do some salsa too!

  3. I love to can! This is my third year doing it. Last year was the first year that I was Brave enough to try the pressure cooker. My Favorite thing I have done is veggie stew.

  4. When I was young it was always my favorite when my mom and dad would can homemade applesauce. I love the fall season for so many reasons.

  5. Not at all...those are just beautiful! I've only canned twice, jam and cherry pie filling, and it was so rewarding. I can't wait to do more. Enjoy.
