My Mom And Dad pictured above,came out today and we all canned Apples!We all took turns peeling,and slicing the apples,but the guys handled most of that when Mom and I started making the mixture of water,sugar,cornstarch,cinnamon,and nutmeg,after it is boiled and you add yellow food coloring and lemon juice, then pour into sliced apple-packed quart jars,then you give them a 20 min. hot water bath!When you use them they are all ready to put into the pie crust for apple pie!You don't have to add anything else!We canned 26 1/2 quartsWe also boiled the peelings and juiced the leftover apples we had sliced , We strained the peelings and added the juice and made 9 pints of Apple Jelly,and I used the leftover pulp from the juicer addded a little apple juice and water and made 2 1/2 pint of applesauce!YUM, the sauce and jelly taste so good!
We canned Tomatos the other day and have 15 quart so far!Is there anything prettier then fresh canned Tomatos,or fruit?We have more Tomatos to can sometime this week!
Well we are both exhausted and I bet Mom and dad are too,! Early to bed tonight I bet!LOL!
