I love this preserving method too cuz it doesn't take up freezer space. I tend to roast a lot of my tomatoes, freezing both fruits and juice ( separately).

Today was a cool enough day and we had the time. Thawed out my raspberries, some blueberries and cherries. We made dozens of jars of cherry jelly, raspberry preserves, blueberry preserves, and some mixed berries too. Still have more to go. Lot of half pint size jars, as that's the size we had the most of. A nice breeze blowing in from the back door and out the kitchen windows as well as the ceiling fan kept us cool all day.

I did 3 canner loads of a hot sweet salsa--it is the chili sauce recipe from the Ball Blue Book, but I use all hot peppers and leave out the spices from the orginal recipe. It is the one thing people ask me for--so if you are on my Christmas list, I got ya covered.

The drought doesn't seem to have affected my tomatoes, but I have no beans or cukes. Lots of patty pans, and I have dried some of those, as an experiment.

Uh-huh!

If you are a canner, I would certainly copy out the recipe for you. And email it on Christmas.

I left the beans for the DH. I brought home two head of bok choy and will go back out tomorrow evening. Sure I can't bring you some eggs, kale, sweet corn, purple pole beans, a head of cabbage as well as the potatoes, TL?

It all sounds good to me. So, any of that you have plenty of, please, except maybe the corn. Is that sweet corn the bicolour kind? Hate that stuff. Too sweet for me. I like the old fashioned yellow stuff. Greedy bugger, ain't I.
