    I can't understand people who couldn't be bothered with a garden cause they might get dirty, lol. When we moved and I put a huge garden in people were in disbelief. I got stupid questions like you work it by yourself, by hand? Uh ... Well ..ya! Lol. But those same people somehow are always first in line come fall for some garden goodies. I love working outside. Besides the animals I live off grid , heat my home and cook with wood and play in the dirt ( garden). Something so good for the soul about gardening, planting and caring then eating your own product. Flygap - I'll post the recipes for the tomato jelly and jam in the morning sometime and for who ever want. They are super easy and the jam you can use anywhere you use ketchup, salsa or bbq sauce.

    Always good to get other peoples recipes
    I'd have a cat but my 2 big dogs wont tolerate them - a neighbours cat that used to visit the barn ended up being rescued from a very tall tree by the local fire service after Mungo decided he'd had enough of him - it was quite an event (nothing much happens around her) with a good crowd of people gathered all giving advice on how to tempt it down
    FlyGap - my tan is sensational but unfortunately ruined by all the insect bites I'm covered in.
    Totally irrelevant to the thread but I got half way around the supermarket on Saturday, complaining loudly about the price of fruit and suddenly realized I still had my house slippers on.

    Lol Jaydee.
    Tomato jelly:
    8 cups sliced tomatoes (about 3lbs)
    1/2 cup water
    3 hot chili peppers ( I did it without, didn't have them turned out fine)
    3/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil ( I did 3tbsp dry basil)
    3 1/4 cups granulated sugar
    2 tbsp bottled lemon juice
    1 pkg regular powdered fruit pectin
    Combine tomatoes,water,peppers,and basil in ssteel saucepan. Bring to boil over medium. Reduce heat and boil gently, stirring some and slightly crushing tomatoes,until tomatoes are softened. About 25 mins. Transfer to jelly bag and let drip undisturbed for at least 2hrs over deep bowl. Measure 1 3/4 cups of tomato juice from this. Put tomato juice into large ssteel saucepan. Add lemon juice. Whisk in pectin until dissolved. Bring to boil over high, stirring frequently. Add sugar all at once and return to full rolling boil,stirring constantly. Boil hard for 1 min. Skim foam and quickly pour into jars (1/4 inch headspace). Process jars for 10 mins (altitudes up to 1000 ft) add more time depending on area. Does 7 x 125ml jars.

    Here is the Tomato jam recipe. Its crazy good. I did it last year when I was overwhelmed with tomatoes and wanted to experiment.
    5 lbs tomatoes finely chopped
    8 tbsp lime juice
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tbsp salt
    3 1/2 cup sugar
    2 tsp freshly grated ginger ( I didn't have so I omitted, tasted great without)
    1/2 tsp ground cloves
    1 tbsp red chili flakes
    Combine all in a large ssteel pot. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer till it reduces to a jammy consistency. Between 1 & 1 1/2 hrs. Mine took 2 hrs. Jar leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Process filled jars for 20 mins. The amount that this does varies depending on your tomatoes and how thick jammy is to the cook. Once again I warn - This Is Highly Addictive! Lol

    Thanks for the recipe - if I ever persuade my tomato plants to produce I'll give it a go - they are actually looking a bit healthier so feeling a bit more optimistic!!!

    My mom canned a lot, and when I was a teenager, we had company for dinner, and she made a blackberry cobbler, the berries were frozen, she served the cobbler, everyone dug in and we then realized she had mistakenly used beets instead of berries. We have never let her live that down!!

    Had to share this. I made raspberry vinegar (yeah, I had that many to waste, sorry TC! Did part with ACV and part with balsamic) and used some of the acv version to make a vinaigrette last night. Oh my goodness, it was heavenly with cucumbers out of the garden!

    Looks like I will be canning green beans, tomato sauce & juice & carrots this weekend. Corn is coming along well and first planting of Ambrosia is close to ready, hoping another week. Makes me wish I wouldn't have planted so late this year but on the plus side, with the staggered plantings I should be getting fresh corn into September
