~Fill the Pantry~

I have to say that canning is relaxing to me...
for some unknown reason... 
because everyone knows it is the messy job 
and you have to stand on your feet for hours on end.
But it is well worth it to see all 
those filled bottles lines up in the pantry!

All the things that I have canned are 
 recipe from the Ball "Blue Book".
Which is by my side at all time when I am canning.
I go through it and after reading almost every recipe...
I usually skip over the mincemeat ones...
I choose which ones I will try out this year and 
I also use the recipes I liked from past years.

DILL RELISH
(first time trying this recipe)



This is 
KETCHUP
(which is pretty easy to make and tastes so good
and I am not a ketchup lover)


 I also made 
TACO SAUCE
(sorry no picture)

~*~

Then of course I had to can some
PEACHES & PEARS



I planted my corn late so it just got picked and 
will be frozen on the cob.
My sauerkraut is trying to do it's thing...
for some reason I don't have much 
luck with sauerkraut. 
So cross your fingers for this year!
