When I get into projects like this one, I feel so much accomplishment when I am done! I don't know what makes me feel that way. I do know, however, that we will have plenty of salsa goodness to enjoy during every college and NFL football game this upcoming winter! My "mater" plants STILL have loads of fruit on them, so I am thinking about putting my Gram to work when she comes to spend some time with us later in the week! I remember when I was a little girl, and I would go with Gram to the basement to pick out a jar of beans, or pickles, or peaches, or pears! I loved her cellar with all of her canning goods in it! Mine will never look like that, but the idea of canning brings me great joy!
