19 quarts of tomatoes!

What a difference the pressure canner made when processing tomatoes -- the job took half the time, and the kitchen didn't get all steamed up. Love it! I get impatient waiting for the canner to depressureize, but that was my only frustration. Better be frustrated than wind up with a canner lid muckled onto your face, LOL.

When I was cleaning up, I reached for the disposal switch and my elbow touched something wet and cold: another big bowl full of tomatoes that I forgot about! Well, I was out of jars and out of lemon juice, so I stuffed the tomatoes into zip-lock bags and tucked them in the fridge. I'll process them when I make the salsa; two jars didn't seal, so they went into the fridge as well for reprocessing.

Now I need to find some peaches ... I'm out of peach salsa.

Yes a pressure canner speeds things up for sure. I usually buy a bushel of Michigan red haven peaches to put up only can't this year. Their whole crops froze out so none to buy. How do you use your peach salsa?

I really need to find a bushel of tomatoes to put up but honestly with this moving junk I don't know when I'd have the time. I'm so tired by the end of the day unpacking and putting stuff away as it is now.

But seriously, aside from the usual snack with tortilla chips, I also eat it on chicken, fish, pork chops, and ... hamburgers. I'm really liking having a fruity condiment with meat.

I've never tried this, but over vanilla ice cream ... ? Bet that would be different.

You need one? I can post mine when I get home from work.

While the tomatoes are processing, of course.
