Preserving the Week's Harvest
8/24 - Seven half-pints of sweet relish, three pints of tomato juice and a loaf of zucchini bread
8/28 - Nine half-pints of strawberry jam, four half-pints of dill relish (I lacked about a tablespoon of having enough for five jars, so that went into the fridge), and four pints of pickled beets. *I left the canner on the stove that night. In the morning, I started to dump out the water and there was another jar of relish! It would be terribly over processed, so I doubt it is any good. It is sealed though, so we'll give it a taste test.
8/30 - Eight pints of Annie's Salsa, 5 pints of pickles, and a 16 ounce bottle of tomato juice (refrigerated, not canned) from the cherry tomatoes.
