Corn Relish

Putting up the corn relish today. I got 10 pints and 5 1/2 pints. It sure is pretty. It’s a new recipe for me and it was wayyyy to strong tasting with the vinegar. I diluted it with water so it wouldn’t be soooo strong. Then it needed more sugar which I’m not using. I’m using Splenda instead. Then it STILL needed something I thought, so I added some celery salt. It’s better but nothing to write home about. ;) I guess it will be really good with peas this winter.

I got 12 quarts of dill pickles put up yesterday and 6 quarts of stewed squash and 7 quarts I believe it was of snap beans. I had to go get me some more canning jars last night. I had lots and lots of jars and I have no idea what happened to them. I bought 4 boxes of them last night. Don’t know if I will get them all filled or not but at least I should have plenty if I need them. I know I am going to put up more snap beans. Plus next year the jars will probably be priced higher so at least I will have them when I need them.

I think I actually have about 3 hours that I can chill out this evening. I think I might just take me a nap. lol

Now this evening this poor yard of mine has got to be mowed! DH is going to gather the squash while I mow. It is SO HOT here right now and we NEED some rain soooo bad. So I’m not getting out there to mow until around 7 I think so maybe it will be a little cooler anyway. This humidity is horrible right now with this heat.

I sure hope you all are having a great weekend. I’m off to take a nap. ;)

WHEW!!! Makes me so tired reading about all that work! Reason being that I have been there and done that so many times in the past and know how much work there is put into canning. Not many left who put up a lot of stuff by home canning any more!

Hope you get some rest this weekend!
