ReLocavore: Redefining "local"

A locavore moves from Wisconsin to New Hampshire and rediscovers what "local" means.

Canning Inventory for 2013

2 Comments

Here’s the full inventory of everything I’ve canned this season:

If “a pint’s a pound the world around” and disregarding the weight of the jars, I have put by 165.5 lbs of food in jars… More than my body weight! I’m proud. Very proud.

What’s left? I like to put by a few jars of gingered pears, but the pears don’t come ripe until mid-October. In addition, I may get the bug and put by some apple pie filling or spiced apple rings, but that won’t be too much of an effort. I’m not a fan of canned squash, pumpkin or potatoes. Those go into the kuhlschrank instead. So that’s about it for my 2013 canning.

Who’s hungry?

  1. I’m making spaghetti sauce today. Your wonderful father helped me seed the tomatoes. My back hurts. Tomatoes are cooking as we write. I’m so proud of you.

    • That’s fantastic that dad help with the seeding. Kudos to teamwork, eh?

      Three weeks ago, I had to can quartered tomatoes without any help. It was pretty miserable.
