Canning, Canning and More Canning

September 17, 2010

Well, I don’t have anything new to show you…but I was canning today.  Matt loved his oh so small taste of the tomato jam I made yesterday and was in complete agreement when I suggested I would repeat it again today.  Another double batch made its’ way in and out of our kitchen. 

Plus, I prepared the green tomatoes for jam tomorrow.  I am interested in how this recipe will turn out but I am confident that it will be amazing.  It comes from Gloria Nicols’ book Fruits of the Earth and every one of her recipes is nothing short of amazing.  If you get a chance you should check out her blog Laundry Etc  There are lots of beautiful photos and more of her great recipes!

I am so fortunate to have great friends that are also extremely skillful gardeners.  My good friend called me yesterday asking if she could drop by with a few tomatoes and such from her garden.  When she arrived we unloaded 4 boxes of tomatillos, 2 boxes of green tomatoes, assorted peppers and a bunch of field cukes.  Am I the luckiest girl on the planet!?!  I have so many recipes that I want to try…any suggestions for the green tomatoes or tomatillos?

    Wow, what a nice friend to drop off so many veggies! For tomatillos, I like salsa verde.
