My parents are relatively young. My mom just turned 50 and my dad is 48. However with the passing of my MIL at just 51, I have realized that I need to learn everything I can about family history and various skills and recipes. So last weekend and this weekend, I learned to can from my amazing mama.
My mom brought boxes and boxes of canning stuff over and we went to work. Last weekend we canned dill and spicy dill pickles. This weekend I canned salsa and bread and butter pickles. The salsa was a lot more challenging then I expected because I had to peel and de-seed the tomatoes. I’m weary of how it will come out, but they look so pretty.
I had a great time learning from my mom and am so excited to grub down on some deliciousness! Life’s short…learn.
