I've had the week off from work, which has been fantastic! After a short trip to visit the family over the weekend, I've been relaxing, helping John with yard work, and keeping myself busy in the kitchen. We had a sudden bumper crop of cherry tomatoes, which I oven-dried, and I FINALLY got around to my first-ever canning project! I made a batch of tomatillo salsa from "The Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving." I think it worked! My jars seem to have sealed beautifully - no clicking when I push on the top, and I can pick the jar up by just the lid (after removing the rim.) Looks like a success!
