Preserving Food

Tomatoes and peppers in the smoker.
A friend came over and brought with her a case of tomatoes, a case of peaches and a case of red peppers all sourced from local farms.  With that started the fun that ensued in the kitchen for the next 2 days.  We canned smoked red pepper spread, smoked tomatoes, peach butter, hot & spicy peach BBQ sauce, and a Guinness mustard.  Not bad for a couple days worth of effort.  Altogether, we each walked away with around 30 pints of canned goods.  The new gas cooktop got a serious workout!

In the next couple of weeks I'll put up some cranberry relish sauce in time for T-day.
