And the garden peas. You spend a good hour picking and shelling enough for dinner for as many peas as you could buy for $1. Tomatoes too. I spent a half day canning tomatoes, ended up with 8 jars. $39 for the plants for 8 frickin jars of tomatoes. This suzy homemaker shït is over rated.
Hi Shadow, could I bother you for a tried and true canning/preserving recipe, because from what I've been reading there are quite a few recipes out there, but the key is finding the right one.
And, yes, some suzy homemaker tasks take away from living a more adventurous and intellgecutal life, but the reason I am considering starting to learn how to preserve food, was when one canning lady said that there is nothing better than in February, when the cold snow and ice is blasting at a 45 degree angle - it is wonderful to open up a jar of sunshine; she meant peaches.
