Canning is My New Favorite Joy

I have been working on organizing my food storage shelves, so of course, now that I have some extra free space, I decided I need to fill it!

I am *just* learning how the canning process works. I feel like I have an okay sense of water bath canning, but pressure canning still confuses me a bit. Thanks to my mother in law, I am rapidly filling my shelves. Next “foodie” goal–making bread from scratch!

Homemade applesauce!

Homemade tomato soup–the picture does NOT do the taste justice.



And diced tomatoes….tomatoes

Plus, I have LOVED having my toddler along for the process. I hope that she carries memories of these special activities, even if she is only two. 🙂
