More Canning and pickling
My first attempt at making salsa. Ten half pints. Didn't use a pre-mix, although I hear they are very good. Decided to use fresh ingredients. My sweet gardener friend gave me the tomatoes and peppers.
She also loaded me up with enough cucumbers to get another run of sweet pickles started. I hope they do ok in the plastic bucket. I normally use the crock, but since I only had one and it was full......
This time I figured out an even simpler method of keeping them under the salt water. No rock in a bag, but quart jars full of water on top of a plate.
