4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Canning: Salsa, Tomato Sauce, Pickles & Relish on: August 04, 2016 11:13:33 AM
    The past two days have been full of canning the two boxes of cucumber and tomato seconds I got at a local farmer's market.  After weighing, the totals were 31.8 pounds of tomatoes (though there were soft spots I had to cut out) and 24.9 pounds of cucumbers.  I have six cucumbers left (any ideas?), but every other bit was used in the following:

    Fiesta Salsa (7 pints) - used Ball Fiesta Salsa mix

Pickles - 6 quarts of bread and butter pickles, 6 quarts and 1 pint of dill pickles - used Mrs. Wage's mixes for both

Tomato sauce (7 pints) and Cucumber relish (12 half-pints) - Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving recipes for both

Things I learned:
  • you can fit more bread&butter pickles in the jars than you think
  • if using an All American Pro Pressure Canner, make sure you put enough olive oil on the rims so you can get the top off without use of a screw driver for leverage
  • a food mill is SO. MUCH. EASIER. to mush up tomatoes and remove the skins than removing the skins THEN mushing them up
  • it goes faster when you've a second pair of hands
  • I need more counter space and possibly a bigger pantry
  • canning is addictive ... now I want to do bbq sauce, blackberry jam, chicken broth ... Cheesy
