Persimmon jam, now that sounds awesome! Do you make pepper jellies?

What can I say? I'm a total sucker for good down home southern cooking and canned goods!
Besides, I can't get good cat head biscuits and sweet tea around here!

Ya know, now I'm adding pepper jelly to the list, I've never done that, now I must.
I can't live anywhere that doesn't have decent biscuits..oh wait, yes I can, because I'll make em myself! I'm on the fence about the persimmon, I'm gonna test it out on the hubby tomorrow.

Great job! I'm about to start canning my Romas. I took the initiative to transplant about 50 volunteer tomatoes that sprang up around my cistern and in last year's tomato raised bed. I put them in the new asparagus bed on the south wall of the garage, and on the old cattle fencing left by the street. We've been eating cherries since mid-June. I've NEVER had tomatoes this early before. I've been watering almost every day, and we started eating beefsteaks about a week ago.
I'm not going to start canning this year until the temperatures abates some, and then only in the morning. We've had almost a month straight of over 100 degree heat indexes, and I think I'll keep over in the kitchen adding hot water to the mix! =b

I canned alot at 3am, to keep it cooler. I have a small cake business and I bake those at 3am as well. Sleep and I are not friends.
I have some mators left, and this is probably the end of them...I think I'll make salsa tomorrow.

Yum! Haven't started here yet. Did shred & freeze a bunch of zucchini to make bread & pies with later & made some pickled beets - that I don't have to share, it doesn't bother me a bit that my hubby thinks beets taste like dirt (?).

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

you guys are making me jealous! I don't have the room or sunshine to grow hardly any veggies. Guess I could rototill up my back lawn.

Anyway, I just want to say I admire your initiative and creativiity in doing all this and keeping the art of canning alive!

What's funny is I live in the middle of town in a little subdivision. My horses live at my inlaws on land galore...but I don't want to drive over there to garden daily, so I planted it here. My mom and I did this when I was a kid...and I just can't stand to let it die. I notice the older I get the more like mom I get..that's scary.
