Weekend Canning Fun

This past weekend we decided that we better do some more canning. Grandma Linda kept the babies so mom and dad could get some things done. Saturday we canned 26 pints of peaches and 4 pints of homemade sauerkraut. Sunday we canned 13 quarts of Salsa, 5 quarts of tomato juice, and 7 pints of tomato sauce. Needless to say that we were worn out by the time that Sunday night rolled around. Here are a few pictures from Sunday. The pile of tomatoes we started with.

Jason was using our meat grinder to grind up the tomatoes for the tomato sauce. We had almost all the bowls in the kitchen dirty and a big mess when we were done. The finished project is worth it though.

Here is all the finished product.
