Come monday i be canning Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
I hope you get rhubarb easier than we do. I can't afford to buy it and no one seems to grow it here. As for soups and stews, just make up a few batches and freze them. Because so many of us use home freezers today, canning using the pressure cooker method if slowly becoming a thing of the past.

this coming weekend our daughter and son in law will be here for our annual canning days. We will put up about 20 to 30 pints of salsa, lots of pickles, both sour dills and hot and sweet ones: of course jams plus lots of tomatoes. This is for starters. Later in the summer i will do more tomatoes as they ripen plus jalapenos and a few other things. We are cutting back this year, I need to use what I have in the pantry from last year and the year before.

My favorite weekend of the year is our canning weekend. Because she will be here a week this time, we don't have to do everything in 2 days. Hopefully, this time next year they will be living here permanently. if they can sell their Texas home they will move to their house up here. She is one of the many in our country that has been hit by the economy and recently lost her job or 32 years. Her husband works for the same company and is safe for now: he will telecommute if they re-locate.

When we lived in Ca and there were cherry farms and cherry picking we did 2 things: 1, simply can them is a very light simple syrup. They are great for pie or make cherry jelly.

Amazing how everything ripens at once, aint it?
Oh yeah, I forgot about the pesto I made and froze last week.
