WEW, I'm beat!

I know that there are many of you that do allot more canning then I do. It's been 8 years since I last canned Salsa. My neighbor gave me 2 big box's of tomatoes free, I said I wanted to do Salsa. I spent $30.00 at the farmers market buying pepper's of all kinds, $30.00 at the store buying wide mouth pint bottles and rings and herbs and cloves. I'm sorry, I forgot to take pictures until I was all done, you'll just have to imagine it. What a mess! It took 2 days. One day to blanch, pill and cut all veggies, and wash bottles. The next day to organize, cook, fill bottles and water bath 8 bottles 3 times. We got 23 pints! We can buy a bottle of a good salsa from Costco for $1.25. 23 of those bottles would cost 29.70 - plus tax.

After it's all over, the kitchen is cleaned up and I've had a 2 hr. nap, I guess I can say, yeepy! Salsa!!!!!!!


  1. I hear you...I have bottled everything you can name for years and years and I am so burnt out! I don't care if I never bottle another thing! Yay for your work ;D

  2. It looks wonderful!!! Even though you can get Salsa at Costco cheaper, you can't get it any better.
