Canning Marathon

Photobucket

I spent most of the morning and afternoon in a canning marathon. I had piles of tomatoes as well as about 10 lbs. of plums. A friend gave me a bunch of cucumbers too.

So I made 4 quarts of relish.

10 cups of plum jam.

and

5 quarts of tomato sauce.

I love the popping sound the jars make as they seal. It lets me know that they are done and that we'll have lots of good things to eat this winter.
