Yes, that's the one I use.

1/2 C white vinegar
6 C chopped pitted peeled peaches
1 1/2 C chopped red onion
4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 C loosely packed finely chopped cilantro
2 T liquid honey
1 1/2 t cumin
1/2 t cayenne pepper

Bring all ingredients to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and boil gently, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Ladle into hot 1/2 pint jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Process 15 minutes in a boiling water bath.

ok, I imagine I will only do a little more this year: I want to find some tomatoes and apparently that is about the only thing we got that was worth much this year. Of course I have already done a bunch of salsa but I would love to do some tomatoes only. I usually do them in pints, not quarts...

today in the paper, there was another article about the drought, AR is the most extreme drought state there is this year, so you guys can imagine how bad it is.

Because of the horrible spring and summer I am hearing and reading the appple crop this year, what apples there are will be about 4 weeks ahead of time so think I am going to start checking out any apple farms in SW Mo...maybe I can get enough to make some apple butter in the next few weeks.

Hi all, I asked a question in Food about canning and my glass top stove. I'll try to find the manufacturer's instructions online to see if its safe to can on my stove, but I've also found a stand alone water bath canner ($$) that I'm considering. Pressure canners are cheaper. Anyone know whether pressure canners can be used on a smooth top stove? It seems it wouldn't matter because its a whole different animal. Are there some type of foods that can't be pressure canned? I'm most interested in canning pickles and zucchini relish based on the garden at the moment. :-) Thanks!

Relish and pickles are best canned in a water bath canner -- the pressure would turn them to mush -- but you can use your pressure canner as a water bath canner as well. Fruit products, because of their high acid content, don't need to be processed in a pressure canner.

All vegetables that aren't pickled must be processed in a pressure canner. Most tomato products can go either way; it depends on the recipe.

To turn the pressure canner into a water bath canner, all you do is sit the lid on top of the canner, without tightening it, and process as usual.

And you have to read the instructions that come with the pressure canner. Some, like mine, are too small to use as a water bath canner with quart jars; the pot isn't tall enough to cover the quart jars with water. Otherwise, it's fine to use as a water bath canner.

I'm making yellow-tomato salsa as we speak ...
