Over the weekend I acquired eight half-pint jars, as well as a copy of “Canning for a New Generation”. The temperature through most of the week is supposed to be something stupidly high so I’m not sure I’ll want to have huge vats of water boiling, but I hope the meteorologists are wrong because I really want to make some sort of strawberry something. 17 months ago

About once a year I get all domestic and decide to do everything from scratch. “I’m gonna bake my own bread all the time! I’ll grow my own herbs! I’ll make seitan! No more frozen pizzas, ever!”
This lasts sometimes a month, sometimes just until I actually do one of those things and realize frozen pizzas were invented for a reason. This weekend I’m going to try to make my own bagels, and we’ll see how my mood is then.
But anyway, I’ve finally read “Fast Food Nation” and all sorts of books about how processed foods are so disgusting and will be the death of us all, so I’m going to attempt to do a little more from scratch than I do now. (Which is already more than most people I know, but I like to push myself.) So I want to make my own salsa, and can it instead of buying Pace or whatever not even good stuff, and put away jars of summer peaches and whatnot. Then next winter I can feel all smug about what I have socked away. 21 months ago
