I've spent some of the weekend and last night canning tomatoes from my dads garden. He's canned about 90 something cans of his own and between my friend and I, we've canned about 50 and I'm planning on canning a lot more. I'm also wanting to can some home made salsa in the next week, so if anyone has ever done this, I'd love some advice. It will be my first time doing salsa.
7. Store away for winter. Nothing like home grown canned tomatoes cooked in yummy soups while sitting by the fire. Okay, so I'll probably sneak a couple of cans out to use before winter like I have the green beans.
There's a lot of corn ready now, so next is corn! I'm going to freeze the corn, I don't really like how canned corn tastes. My dad has this neat little gadget that you use to remove the kernels and it turns it into creamed corn. You don't add any cream or additives at all, and it still tastes so creamy and yummy! I just bought a freezer at Lowe's last week, so I'm hoping it will be delivered by Friday.
If you've been wanting to can your own veggies, I would encourage you to do it. It is so satisfying and tastes so much better than the vegetables in store bought cans. It's pretty easy, too. If I can do it, anyone can. :)
