How to live a more natural, self-sustaining existence in south-western Manitoba.
Friday, 28 September 2012
My mother came over and we had quite a productive four hours! We canned 2 1/2 pints of tomato sauce, made pumpkin pie (from scratch!!!), and sampled her Roasted Tomato Soup that she'd made from a recipe printed in our local newspaper.
In total that makes 5 1/2 pints of tomato sauce that I have canned. I gave one pint to my mother as thanks for letting me use her canner all summer. I also dehydrated a batch of tomatoes, but honestly I will never do that again. What a waste of time. So much cutting, gutting, and the result is less than satisfactory. I still have more tomatoes but those will be made into omelettes, sandwiches, and soup.
