My... what beautiful peppers you have!
Looks like a tomato party!
Canning salsa last night.
The crushed and diced tomatoes.
Please don't think that all is perfect in my little canning world. I filled a jar with tomatoes that apparently wasn't hot enough to handle the hot tomatoes and when I picked it up the bottom fell off. I had tomato and juice in the drawer and cabinet and floor. Luckily it was only a pint jar!
And finally... a recipe. This is the recipe I used for two batches of tomato juice that I have full intentions of enjoying in a bloody mary on some cold winter morning or day. They will also be used as back up for soups and such. This recipe has just the right amount of spice and heat and once in a glass of ice all that is needed is the vodka and Worcestershire sauce and maybe a little salt. Or you can leave out the vodka all together and have an amazing nutritious drink. Enjoy!
By the way... for my batches of this I used my father-in-law's banana peppers which have a lot of heat this year and I used my Vitamix to chop my peppers, onions and celery. What a life saver! And always remember to use gloves when handling peppers.
