making salsa!
Matt was sweet enough to peel the tomatos for me:)
cooling, ready to have the peels taken off..
he's such a GOOD helper:)
pretty color.. will miss that this winter
*insert picture of Hank "helping" here*
ready to stew it a little
more pretty color!
Ready to put into jars
first hot water bath I've done and years! My grandma Olson use to can a lot and I got her big canning pot when they were moving. I was thrilled. how many 26 year olds do you know that would be thrilled to get a huge canning pot!?
Waiting to boil... and that takes forever
I forgot to take a picture of the finished jars. they were pretty! There were fourteen of them, two batches. it was fun. made me miss doing it.

You are good, girl! Think what you'll be doing when you actually are 80 years old!

I need a salsa lesson! I have been so tempted to get Jonny a pressure canner.
