(This after.... Jam, and frozen veggies.)
So far anyway. The only one that hasn't turned out well (so far) is the salsa. I'm pretty sure I created a little botulism in a couple of jars, but two out of 20 isn't bad is it?
Now don't be too impressed. I haven't canned enough to last a year or anything. I'm just getting used to this new eat fresh in the summer, and can the rest for the winter type of living. Now I totally get why people eat pickled things like sauerkraut. What a great way to eat nutritious cabbage in the winter! I'm not sure why I never looked at it that way. Probably because I have lived the last 30 some years of my life eating what I wanted, when I wanted.
On that note, not only am I apprenticing with a local Beekeeper, I'm taking a course on cheese making. I'm so ready to have our own dairy cow, and preserve her goodness with cheese and other products.
Soon we really WILL be the land flowing with milk and honey! So funny.
