Like so many things in life, canning with a friend is infinitely more fun than doing it by yourself!
With another friend's salsa recipe in hand, we set out for the market to gather all our ingredients.
Lots of hot peppers.
A 10lb bag of onions.
A bushel of tomatoes.
And then it was time to get down to business. We sat at opposite ends of the table in the backyard. We chopped and sliced and diced. All the while we chatted and gabbed. We drank coffee. After the coffee came the wine. The hours passed quickly.
Seven hours later we each ended up with over a dozen jars of tasty, spicy salsa. It was a great way to spend a day with a good friend.
