September 2021 more of the canning and a bell pepper

This picture shows the grand results of the canning. My mother brought peaches, peach jam, and peach salsa. The peach salsa is on the very top and the peaches and peach jam are on the left and right. I canned sweet pickle relish (top left) and bread and butter pickles (upper right, next to the peach jam) before my mother arrived.

The peach salsa looks amazing. I haven’t tasted it yet.

In the upper left of this picture, these two 1/2 pint jars are tomato salsa and the red onions in honey. The dill spears are sitting on top of a jar of dill chips. And the green beans are on top of the very obvious bottom row jar of corn.

There are canned beans across the bottom row that are a little less obvious. At the far right is a jar of black beans and on the left, red beans and pinto beans. I usually put in jars of dry beans if there is a space in the canner but I also sometimes do whole batches of canned beans as I really like having them ready to eat.

The canned tomatoes are topped off with a jar of tomato sauce –such a lovely red. The apples under the peach salsa have already made an appearance, I have high hopes for that sweet pickle relish.

And my mother also brought canned cherries, which we forgot to get into this picture, but I will put up a picture of those at some point.

And, just to top things off, here is a picture of a bell pepper in my garden.

September 2021 corn and apples

The canning has been roaring along; I had already canned some corn earlier but we did four dozen more ears of corn. Lovely, lovely yummy corn. The apples are canned very simply –a light syrup of sugar and water and no spices. They are really tasty apples and I think they will be great in oatmeal or made into an apple crisp.

Loads more things happening… more pictures soon….
