    Today was my first attempt at canning peaches. I had fun and I really hope they turned out okay. What a mess! Peach juice and skins stuck to the front of my kitchen cabinet and everything! I made homemade strawberry jam this past June and I didn't make nearly enough. The kids have devoured it! Going raspberry picking with the family tomorrow to make jam. Any other canners out there and what are some of your favorite things to can?

    I have canned grape jam, grape juice, tomato salsa, pasta sauce, & tomato juice. Our raspberries are not ready yet. Thank goodness, maybe I can get caught up on my sewing!

    I can applesauce and apple pie filling, but freeze everything else. Of course you need freezer room then.

    Used to do applesauce, jam, grape juice, tomatoes, peaches, pears. Now just jam and baking things when hubby is home. It'll taste wonderful in Jan. and Feb.

    Just finished up the last of a wheelbarrow (big) full of tomatoes today. Green tomato relish last week. The market had California strawberries 2 for 1 last week, so made 4 more batches of freezer jam. Have lots more of those red things in the garden, so will make more sauce, juice and chili sauce over the next couple of weeks. Also need to do salsa. Don't you just love this time of the year!

    Hubby bought a ton of tomatoes today to make his Gram's fantastical chili sauce. I could eat bowls of that stuff!!
    Doing some jams and fruit but not much else this year.

    Back in my wild and wooly days I had a recipe for making Red Tomato Wine. That was some killer stuff! The first batch I whipped up I didn't know that I was supposed to test it now and then and when it got to the wine stage put something in it to kill the yeast. Anyway, that "wine" tasted a lot like and had twice the kick of Southern Comfort. The recipe has long gone by the wayside and I don't remember it. But my cousins and I used to make it a lot! Hardly had any tomatoes for a salad. LOL

    I had my first ever tomato plant this year and I got at least 48 tomatoes off it. It was in a container on my deck.

    I made Salsa with the first 2 dozen, and then the next week I made a sweet cherry salsa with the other 2 dozen.

    I also had a cherry tomato plant in a topsy turvy planter.

    Not bad for my first try and growing something edible.

    Only problem, I didn't water consistently and got yellow shoulder on most of the tomatoes or they had cracks on the tops of them.

    I also had something called tomato spotted wilt virus. It made the leaves turn purple and most of the later blooms just dropped off the plant.

    And then a tornado came through our area about a week and half ago and finished it off. LOL

    OK now - you can't do that to us!

    You can't talk about GRAMS FANTASTICAL CHILI SAUCE and not post the recipe!
