Canning Obsession

I can quit anytime I want.  Really I can.  Just one more box.

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.

So festive.

 The final product.

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.
