I want to do fermented pickles but have no idea of where to get grape leaves which are needed for crispness. No vinegar is used when fermenting.

Now this is a pot of SALSA!

This pot is 14" x !4", my guess is maybe 10 gallons. I will know when it is in the jars.

From my pot of Salsa I canned:

15 pints of salsa
9 pints of peach salsa, I threw in about 13 ,skinned and diced, peaches into a gallon of salsa.
9 quarts of Bloody Mary Mix
9 quarts of salsa

So my pot holds about 7.5 gallons of finished product.
It seems so much more!

Never thought about doing Bloody Mary mix! What do you put in it TC? On the rare occasion we have them, I cheat & make them with spicy V8.

When I can the salsa, about halfway through it starts getting really watery, you know, after the big chunky stuff is already canned. Then I put the salsa through a strainer, what comes trough the strainer I can as bloody Mary mix, and what doesn't I finish up canning as salsa.
It is great and S p i c y!

Just put on, the water bath, the last of my second batch of salsa, bigger batch than last,

I got:
25 quarts of salsa
8 quarts of bloody Mary mix
3 pints of salsa
6 pints of Bloody Mary Mix
almost 10 gallons of finished product.

I miss-judged and ended up with about a quart of Bloody mix without a jar...looks like its bloody's on Sunday morning...YUM!

Spent all day canning my first ever marinara sauce!
Delish! Tried to fight off hubby because he kept wanting to make spaghetti before I had packed all my jars... He won.



Have yet to find the PERFECT spicy/sweet green tomato chunk relish recipe... Do any of you have a good one?

Looks yum Fly! I've got sauce on right now. Been canning like crazy the last few days. Green beans, beef veg soup, carrots, v8, tomato juice and I picked 10 dozen ears of corn to freeze tonight.

Tonight is a BLT, corn on the grill & cantaloupe for dessert kind of night. Ahh, summer.

So how's it going?
I canned until 2am last night, there isn't enough caffeine to get me going today.
Got 12 pints and 2 quarts of sauce outta these. Seriously I don't know how on earth companies produce enough tomatoes to make all that spaghetti sauce!



I was going to post a photo of me making the sauce, then I noticed I didn't have a bra on... I'll spare you that!
