Canning for Dummies!

My wife has a great recipe for homemade salsa so we bought about 12lbs. of Roma tomatoes and hot peppers and miscellaneous other stuff for the salsa.  After it was all finished we had 17 pints of homemade salsa. (I’ll put up the recipe soon)

I wanted to also put up some dill pickles so we also picked up some cucumbers that are for making pickles while we were at Harry’s.  We ended up with 8 pints of dill pickle spears and chips.  We haven’t tried any yet but I expect one jar to get cracked open this weekend during our cookout.
