Mom's notes on canning Pickled beets (my fav food ever), on the pages of Nana's recipe book
A wonderful package came in the mail last week, from my Dad (love you Daddsy). It contained a beautiful hardcover copy of one of my late Nana’s recipe book. It came the week I was canning. My fav food in the world remains my mom’s homemade pickled beets. And I believe her recipe is a variation of the one in this book. Thanks dad… another thoughtful and timely package.I attempted the beets last year and they were okay, not quite mom’s. I’m going to enjoy this book, this winter.

It was annual Salsa making day. My canned pinapple salsa was a screaming hit last summer, mostly with Corey (because we didn’t share much of it), so I went for it again this year.
Canning supplies were purchased at the mega supercentre evil but cheap Walmart in CR (thanks dad for gift cards!). I think I added too much vinegar.. But I’m waiting for the man to get home from camp to try it first! Water bath canning is easy enough – I watched about 5 diff YouTube videos for tips. I’m a visual learner so I find it and the how to page (see my links) really helpful. I’m ready to learn to can Salmon -nudge nudge Corey we need salmon! Salsa results to come, stay tuned!
