More canning today

Before I get to my normal Saturday sewing, I am doing a bit more canning.

I used Mrs. Wages salsa mix on the left, homemade on the right. I hate to admit it but Mrs. Wages beat my homemade hands down. Mine was too bland. The mix was nice and hot. I suppose if I made the homemade often enough I'd figure out the right blend of spices. The salsa made from the seasoning mix just looks prettier too.

I've organized my canning jars in preparation for the two batches of sweet pickles I am making. One batch is already to the last stage of soaking in the sugar and spices.

The crock looks pretty rough, and it is an antique, but I assure you it will do the job.
