Almost done. Just a half bushel of tomatoes left to do. Would have done that today, but I ran out of jars. Maybe I can get some more tomorrow. Anyway. Isn't it pretty? And yes, I am very glad I did it, even thought I was kind of grouchy during it all.


  1. Beautiful.
    My mom always cans peaches and complains every stinking time. I think it's the sticky that she doesn't like. Plus I'm not there to help her. It's always more fun in a group setting. I think the Amish are on to something.

  2. Oh, I've never canned anything. It is beautiful. Canning is on my list of things to learn soon. I'm jealous.

  3. Kara, I think you need to come help me next year! Laura, you too, it's always easier to learn doing.

  4. That is SO pretty, and I am SO jealous! Very nice.

  5. I can't even imagine. Look at how much whining I did about a measly not-quite-half-bushel of apples!!!

    As for the raspberry empanadas, I would have to seriously tweak the recipe before I pass it on. It was less than fabulous. The apple butter, however, was amazing. Once the preparation part was done, the rest was easy-peasy and I LOVE IT. So do the kids. So does my brother.


You are clever, tell me whatcha think!
