In more ways than one! It's been extemely hot here with heat advisories everyday and heat indexes of 105 to 110.
I'm still canning two or three times a week. Here I canned more Salsa and Hot Pepper Relish. They (hubby and his friends) told me the salsa and relish could be even hotter so this batch has tons of jalapeno and serrano peppers.
I knew hubby wanted to take some to work for several of the guys, so I decided not to give up my regular canning jars, knowing they more than likely would never come back home. lol I save all kinds of jars. I like to store things in them, ya know? Do any of you save jars? Hubby says I'm a hoarder. I say I'm smart! Just look at this...
The boullion cube jars, relish jars, taco sauce jars, etc. were perfect for me to fill up and him to give away. It saved me the cost of my regular mason jars and lids. Knowing the guys would be eating it right away and there was no need to actually process it in a water bath saved me time also.
Here's my harvest this morning. Not much is slowing down in my garden. I'll have to process more salsa. I need to check and see how much of the hot pepper relish we have left, not sure if I'll make more of it or not. How much is enough relish? lol I can always give it away at the holidays I guess.
I'm out of here to make me a cold refreshing fresh limeade. Hubby was given these last night:
And told me when he stops by his favorite joint tonight, the guys told him they should have a case of limes for him. So I'll be juicing for the next couple days making lime concentrate to freeze for limeades when ever we want. Take that SONIC!
