Yay! A small success!

I canned today for the first time ever-- 2 quarts of pasta sauce made with stuff straight from garden.

Usually, we make stuff and freeze it, but last year, we lost power for 5 days and lost everything, so I was determined to learn to can. I don't want to have AEP determine the fate of my produce. It really wasn't that hard.

    That's great! What canning method did you use? Did you have to buy equipment or did you start off with things you had already?

    Its a lot of fun, isn't it? At least it "can" be. Smile

    We just used hot water bath. It's hard to screw up tomatoes because they are so acidic. Right? We only had to buy lids for jars. My MIL had a ton of them, so she gave us some of her extra jars.
