Becoming a Canner

My mother-in-law makes the most delicious salsa of all time, and I would not joke about such things. I go through a bag of tortilla chips and a jar of her salsa every week and can't get enough of it. SO, last weekend she taught me her skills, and we made 34 jars of  salsa! Coolest thing I learned:

-Put your tomatoes in boiling water for 30ish seconds until there's a crack in its skin. When you see the crack, move the tomato to cold water. Then it's EASY to peel the outside layer off. GENIUS.

Have you ever tried canning? I want to do it again!


  1. I LOVE CANNING! I want that salsa recipe! :) But yes, we can chicken and pork and peaches and pears. So far that's all i've got around to, but I've got a pressure canner if you want to get together!

  2. Yum! Blanching is the BEST! I did it with peaches last year and was constantly amazed how easily the skin came off. If you want to do peaches...they should be about in season!

  3. My family canned every year!!!! so i've helped lots, can't wait until we have space to store canned food!
