Oh My Aching Feet

Canning is super addictive.  Now that I've started I can't stop.  There's just something comforting about seeing all those glass jars lined up on my shelves full of homemade goodies.

Here's what I've made so far with links to the recipes.

Dill Relish

Dill Slices

Pickled Beets

Taco Sauce (recipe in Bernardin book)


Pizza Sauce

I'm expecting my new pressure canner any day now.  I have a crazy amount of chard and beans to can.  My tomatoes are finally producing fruit.  I noticed some of the ones closer to the ground are already rotting.  My fingers are still crossed for a decent tomato harvest.


  1. dill relish sounds yummy! All looks great,so much work! I need to get my relish done...

  2. How did you get your pizza sauce to turn out so red? I have heirloom variety tomatoes and everything I make is light pink.

  3. I cheated. Our tomatoes are just staring to get fruit so I used canned diced tomatoes to make the puree called for in the recipe. It still worked out cheaper than buying pizza sauce.

  4. Can you recommend any good canning resources? I froze my pear sauce last year (we are lucky enough to have a pear tree in the back yard of our rented house!) but I'd like to can it this year to make it easier to give away as gifts.

  5. I use the Bernardin canning book. You can find most of their recipes online.

  6. When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    several emails with the same comment. Is there any
    way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!

  7. Hey! I was curious to know if setting up a blog site such
    your own: is hard to do for unskilled people?

    I've been wanting to create my own website for a while now but have been turned off mainly because I've always assumed it required tons of work.
    What do you think? Thankyou

  9. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick
    question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
