Our third Tomatopalooza submission came from Denise Adams, a dear friend who got the chance to pass on her canning knowledge to her daughters.
My middle child, Alexa, came home from Lexington for a visit with a purpose of canning for our first time! My mother is smiling down on us from heaven I am sure, as we are having an awesome time in the kitchen. We both prepared with lots of reading and researching lots of home canning blogs and websites and the preparation paid off. It is music to the ears listening to the little “pops”. We are forever hooked and bonded over the heat and luscious smells we have created…even baking biscuits and eating our leftovers at midnight last night. Thus far: 10 pints of spaghetti sauce, 10 pints of peach preserves and 9 pints of plum jelly.
An afternoon siesta and then back to the kitchen 🙂
The spaghetti sauce Denise refers to is the Roasted Tomato and Garlic Soup that I often refer to in other posts, a recipe I learned from Mrs. Wheelbarrow’s Kitchen.
