So I pulled up my BGPs and got at it on Saturday. I canned regular diced beets, then whipped up some spiced pickled beets. Then, since I was on a roll, I pulled out the apples and peeled and pared my little heart out. The sheep and llama were thrilled with the peels and cores. I tell you, the way to a llama's heart is paved with apple peels.
You'd think, with all the whinging and whining and carrying-on, that there would be acres of counter top covered with canned goods. This was it:
|All my beets were Chiogga|
For the record, I will now be making applesauce in full hazmat. While stirring away, a molten blob of applesauce erupted out of the pot and hit me square in the eye! Thank goodness it landed in the space right above the tear duct and not IN my eye. Geez. I had to very gingerly apply my handy-dandy aloe plant juice. It's getting so that I'm not safe in or out of the house!
