Wordless Wednesday: Canning

My Italian grandmother of a husband has been at it again. A bushel of tomatoes, and a half a bushel of peaches, have become:

  • Tomato sauce (a/k/a pommarola)
  • Halved tomatoes packed in puree
  • Bolognese sauce
  • Tomato puree (1 jar)
  • Peach halves in light syrup
  • Spiced peach butter
  • Peach syrup

wow! you are set.

my neighbor brought by more tomatoes yesterday, mentioning there are more in the pipeline, far more than he can eat. i said, "you should can these!" and he said, "do you know how?" um, no.

we reached a general agreement that we are doofuses, but i have so many tomatoes now that i ought to at least figure out making sauce from scratch.

Would like to place an order for spiced peach butter.

Gorgeous. That looks like a summer kitchen after my Mom is done with it.

Gwen said...

Now you just need to put up some apples in your root cellar, smoke a deer, and you'll be set for the whole winter.

Seriously, that is impressive.

heidi said...

Would really like to see Gwen smoke a deer.

If only we ALL had an Italian grandmother! Do you get to keep all of that?

I would particularly like the spiced peach butter, I think. Recipe, please?

Have you ever read Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle? She talks about canning gallon after gallon of tomato sauce.

Laughing at your "out of control blogroll." Mine is the same, but I still keep falling in love. Mwah.
