It is canning season! My poor roommate is enduring the explosion of mess in our kitchen every night. I have made 2 batches of cherry salsa, but gave it all away. This week is the last of the cherries; third time is a charm (which makes 30 lbs of cherries this year) and I’m keeping this batch… probably…mostly. I have flats of tomatoes, herbs, cucumbers for pickles, and peaches strewen all over the place (ripening). Last night I washed the 6 dozen jars that my mother had collected for me, organized rings and lids for them all. I am ready to can my heart out. I have a pretty great roommate to put up with the mess. I’ll of course share my preserves, and here I am already giving away my not-even-made-yet cherry salsa. It feels good to give and share the love.
It's coming! Cinco de Mayo is coming!!
Are you ready? Do you celebrate the 5th of May? Do you enjoy margaritas?
If you've answered yes to any one of these questions, I have a fantastic prize for you. It's a blender full of Frozen Mango Strawberry Margaritas to enjoy all by yourself...or you can share. The choice is yours.
