Saturday Afternoon

"That's almost two quarts of green tomato pickle. Even if it's only our first garden on the sod and nothing could grow well, these pickles will be a treat with baked beans in the winter," Ma gloated. (The Long Winter, Laura Ingalls Wilder)

Well, it was salsa and it was ten pints (five quarts), but I know just what Ma Ingalls meant.

Nothing to beat that particular feeling of satisfaction when viewing a row of jars!

Doesn't if feel good to "put up" something from your own garden?

I always admire the lovely colors of completed canning--like jewels on the shelf. Salsa is a big undertaking with all the chopping and seeding and sterilizing. Let yourself feel satisfied.
