My name is Jen and I'm a canning addict.
42 quarts of tomatoes. Does not not include quarts already consumed.
Mild salsa in progress. This is the Zesty Salsa from the Ball Book, but with 1/2 poblano peppers instead of jalepenos.
I'm intending to mix this with the Hot Salsa we made. It's so hot I can barely eat it. But it is beautiful. Can you see the heat emanating from it.
Tomato season is winding down and I was starting to get a bit panicky. What will I do with my time?
Luckily, beets are available by the box now. Hello, new obsession. Yesterday, I hung out with Anne and we canned 19 quarts of Pickled Beets. We also put up Bruschetta in a Jar, because tomatoes may be ending but they aren't done yet. Tomorrow more friends and I are doing more Tomato Sauce and trying out a Green Ketchup recipe. I also have some eggplant I'd love to turn into Caponata.
I know. I'm obsessed. And also, I'm out of jars.
