Day 158 - Canning! (3)

Taking the jars out of the water bath.

The finished product. It'll be 24 hours before I can check the seals and see if I did this right. Cross your fingers.

Next up: green tomato relish (probably Tuesday, assuming I didn't f*ck up the seals on this batch and need to go back to the drawing board). Then I need to decide what to do with the rest of the peaches we got (there's already a pie and some Afghan-style pickled peaches in the fridge). I'll probably put up at least one batch of honey-spice peaches for the winter.

Hey, guess what everyone is getting for holiday presents...

Glad to hear you are following in our family tradition. Mom and I did the canning thing too. Mom was actually the canning expert; I only helped under her direction. Mem also did a lot in her day. Dad...
