Canning on Labor Day







For a third year in a row, Magdalena and I have canned with Grandmom.  



This year, we processed 40 lbs of tomatoes which 
yielded about 18 quarts of raw-packed tomatoes.












The boys were a big help!  







And 20 lbs of peaches, which made about 12 pints of sliced peaches in a light, sweet syrup.







Hard working ladies...

Our kitchen was like a hot, humid swamp...fun!


But so worth it.






Peeling & slicing up tomatoes..

Then filling up jars--

Doesn't Magda look like one tough girl?!  : )










The peaches are sweet and bright and great over vanilla ice cream.


And nothing is as great as pulling a jar of tomatoes
off the shelf in the middle of January that you canned in the summer...


Thanks Magda and Grandmom for all your help & hard work!
