So I had EVERYTHING lined up to begin canning this weekend then my son and his wife decided to go golfing and drop off their 2 year old.

Needless to say...the canning was put off till when he napped or my hubby could entertain him, but I did manage yo put up 21 pints of what I call my Salsa/Sauce ( Pasta and pizza) mix 'smalsa'


We also have our niece here who will be a senior this year and is still sleeping. I had forgotten how much teenagers sleep! Recharging. But its has been a pleasure to have her here.


Anyway, I use this 'SMALSA' for both. But when we open a jar to use as a Salsa, I add fresh Cilantro and some lime juice.


Anyway heres pics of the process. I am planning on making zucchini relish sometime this week and pepper mustard. 


What is everyone else planning on canning this year?


There was another batch still in canner when I took this last picture.
