Ok, I admit it. I’m scared to can. When I was a little girl, we had a huge garden at my grandfather’s – and each summer, I would help my mom to prepare the bounty. Pickled beets, green beans, tomato juice… those were the ones I remember most vividly. But me? I’m a pretend canner.
For my homemade tomato sauce, I prep the tomatoes and cook that sauce down until it’s nice and thick. I love how there are so many tomato varieties in here!
And after cooking, I put it in glass jars while it’s still warm. And of course, I always turn them upside down afterward to make that nice seal.
After a few hours, they go into the fridge – and the next day? Into the freezer. Because, you know, I’m a pretend canner 🙂 To be a REAL canner is one of my goals. Hopefully, soon!
And of course the chickens looooove getting those tomato scraps!
