I got a great deal on bananas, tomatoes, and assorted fruit on the cheap rack in the grocery store. 99¢ per bag.
The tomatoes I bought to eat fresh, then mom gave me a bag of tomatoes from their garden. Then I found the peppers. Now I'm thinking of doing a batch of salsa. With red tomatoes. Go figure, lol. I started canning salsa a few years ago when I had about a million green tomatoes that obviously weren't going to ripen. Google led me to green salsa, and it was an instant hit. It almost feels like blasphemy to make it with red tomatoes. And what shall I do with all of the green tomatoes I end up with at the end of the season? But I don't think I have enough red tomatoes to do a batch of pasta sauce.
I did do a batch of pasta sauce the other day. I cleaned out the freezer in the garage and found a bunch of tomatoes from last year hiding at the bottom. My big roasting pan full of tomatoes resulted in 3 quarts and a pint. Is it worth the effort? I'm not a small batch canner. All of that farting around and all of those dirty dishes for 3.5 quarts?
Hmmm... Maybe I should just freeze them. I'll think on it. While I'm thinking on it, how about another BLT? Maybe the 'problem' will go away on it's own....
Today's adventure- Jamaica Banana Jam. If I can get it done before the boys inhale the rest of those bananas. ;) And then I want to break a bunch of rules again, and can cream of celery soup.
