Copycat canning

Today on Food in Jars the author Marisa posted a picture of the outcome of her 60 Lbs of tomato canning.  It made me feel small, though vindicated in that my tomatoes look a lot like hers, and hers have lots of headspace, too.

I have been contemplating buying another 1/2 bushel (ie: about 28lbs) of tomatos and some more jars for more canning.  This picture might have just pushed me over the edge.

Short entry, but come on, first class today.


About danmalleck

Medical historian and jack-of-all-trades curmudgeon. I tend to ramble about politics, social incivility, and our self-centred culture more interested in buying the next cool ringtone or LED TV than actively engaging in the sorts of discussions and issues that matter. The more opportunity we have to buy more stuff, the less concern there is, it seems, in politics, social justice and let's face it, basic human decency, unless those things actually can save us money or get us more things to show how awesome we are through displaying our material wealth. And I like to brew beer, make cheese, and put food in jars.
