Shortly after moving here last fall I was at Enrichment and they asked everyone who had done any canning recently to raise their hand. I am not joking when I say I was the only one not raising my hand. Believe me, home canning and storage is alive and well here in Meridian, ID. After attempting to grow a garden I knew it was time to take the next big step. With the help of my expert-in-all-things friend Michelle, I learned how to can salsa along with another friend Amy. Look at all this gorgeous home-grown produce (I only contributed a few tomatoes, the rest is from Amy and another friend Malia's gardens.)This was a major production and it took up most of the day, as well as every inch of my kitchen island.
The finished product; 40 beautiful bottles of delicious salsa to be enjoyed all year long.
While it was a lot of work I thought it was really fun and am excited to try it again!
