Canned so far

Canning

Above you see chili sauce, spaghetti sauce and salsa plus a jar of bread & butter cucumber pickles and a tiny jar of bread & butter banana peppers.  As I said in another post, I learned canning this year.  We have also already eaten 4 jars of salsa and 4 jars of the pickles.  I am thoroughly enjoying this garden!

At store prices, I’ve made $30 worth of salsa, $15 worth of spaghetti sauce, $5 worth of chili sauce and $10 worth of pickles.  Meh, just $60, and I spent some to make it—especially considering that most of the jars were new this year—but still it’s better than 50% off, completely local, free of pesticide, no preservatives.

And very satisfying!

  1. The spaghetti sauce would be good. But I’m not sure about the seed thing. Care to share the recipe?

  2. A person who didn’t want the seeds in would just have to spend a bit more time cutting the peeled tomatoes up. They won’t bother us, so I just quickly cored the tomatoes and left in the rest.

    Here is the recipe: http://mrswages.stores.yahoo.net/mrswagspagsa.html
