We are on a canning spree here on the urban homestead and it looks like it won’t let up anytime soon. Today we put up some tomato sauce and sweet pickle relish (pictures coming…. probably Sunday)
This week the peaches have ripen and peaches means jam and a few (er bunch) eaten raw. Covered in sticky sweet peach juice we are.
Our goatsies love the peels (have to make sure there are no pits – pits could mean disaster!) and they devour the scraps up.
Certainly they aren’t the only one that’s benefiting from our canning efforts – the chickens and duck also get in on the action . Nothing is wasted here on the urban homestead!
If you would like to get in the canning action we have a few supplies that can assist you with your preservation efforts. Check out PeddlersWagon.com for canning kits, the nifty non electric food processor (shown below), food mill that’s great for making sauces and even the new Art of Canning DVD by the West Ladies are now available.
