I have spent the last two nights at my sister Deanne's canning salsa and tomato juice. The salsa is just right, not too hot, and not too sweet. I haven't canned since we were first married. I forgot how much better homemade tomato juice tastes in chili and that kind of thing.
There are more tomatoes for me if I want them, so I am thinking I am going to try to make some more juice. First I have to get a couple pieces of equipment. I can't intrude on my sis and her hubby every time I want to make something. They do have an incredible set up to do their canning, big commercial sinks, HOT WATER to get the jars ready, and a juicer that makes you salivate, it cuts the prep time by 3/4 when getting your tomatoes ready to can.
I think it is great her hubby helps her do all the canning. It would take forever if you were out there alone. He helped me last night, they have a definite routine, it goes pretty smooth, and quick. I was quite impressed!
Thanks, Deanne and Mike. I will take pictures of my jars and post, I am so proud!
