I have a new love and it (of course) involves food. A week ago, Gretchen and I took a canning class from Marisa McClellan, the author of the lovely book and blog, Food in Jars. During the class Marisa gave basic instruction for canning whole tomatoes, but more importantly for me was her ability to make canning not so intimidating. I've wanted to try my hand at canning for some time but there is this little fear of mine called killing someone with botulism that has been a deterrent to trying it.
Our canning of the tomatoes went so well that we decided to go ahead and can peaches. We used Marisa's recipe from the book for boozy peaches . Our only setback here was that the peaches would not peel! That was a bit frustrating but we persevered and the result was definitely worth it!
