After two hours of chopping, blanching, peeling and stirring I successfully created my first canned salsa!
I think it will taste great! I hear that the ingredients infuse with each other as they mingle together in the jar. I didn't have enough salsa to keep some uncanned so the final taste will be a mystery for some time. I did notice however that my salsa was more orange than red?! Maybe it was the color of the tomatoes I used? I don't know what would cause, that do you?
Well the canning bug really hit after the salsa and while I was at the Sprouts store, I found an amazing deal on fresh strawberries and blueberries. I found a great recipe for Honey Strawberry Jam on this wonderful site . I found it through my new favorite site Pinterest! Here is a link to the pin on pinterest.com.
I hate the amount of sugar that preserved fruits use so this really caught my attention because it is sugar-free! It uses all natural honey! Last night, the kiddos and I began to wash, chop, stir, and boil strawberries. Within an hour and a half we had these beauties-
This is what I am eating for breakfast this morning! Plain greek yogurt with yummy strawberry jam! Jealous yet? lol
Next up on my "need to try" list is Honey Blueberry Jam...
