Canning 2008

Well, the canning season is officially over for our family. We canned 37 Quarts of Peaches, 13 Quarts of Pears, 72 Quarts of Applesauce, plus the salsa & tomatoes (see earlier post)!! The best part was working side-by-side with my children! Not only am I teaching them to preserve food, but it also teaches them teamwork & a good work ethic. In fact, all of the children helped with willing hearts - sometimes even arguing over who got to do what job... My children are such BLESSINGS!!
