    Canned up tomato soup and need to do it again. Pickled our corn this year, what there was of it...not a nice crop at all.

    This stuff is really GOOD. This is the second year I've used this recipe and it's a good one, though I tend to not put as much sugar or salt in it as it calls for...rather, I add those two ingredients a little at a time until it taste good.

    TY. Could I just use an inversion blender instead? The flour mixture doesn’t get lumpy when it’s processed?

    Not if you blend it fine enough and add it slowly while you stir the hot soup...turns out fine!

    Every time the ears got within 4 days of picking, wildlife destroyed that entire planting. So far, 3 different ones.

    Canned 23 quarts of salsa over the past two days, with my mother's help. Still have two five gallon buckets of gifted tomatoes to work up, and probably another two more from my own garden. Planning on doing one more batch of salsa, then working up the rest as plain pureed tomatoes. I will turn them into soup or sauce when I use them.

    Why does everything have to ripen on the busiest work days? :bow

    Murphy's law:
    "ALL of your best vegetables will fully ripen and be ready to can on those days where you have the busiest schedules/deadlines."
    It IS the LAW. :lol:
