That hot pepper butter sounds good.
We put 40 quarts of corn in freezer. (I have had bad luck with canning in the past?) Thank goodness I have very large upright freezer.

Some pics of canning this season.....


The green in the jar is from a thick slice of green tomato.



Cleaned and waiting jars.....



Slumgulleon, cooking down....



Hot pepper butter, cooking down in the crockpot.
Those are Great!! picture perfect. looks like a peel-off from a magazine... I have a question... what do I need to put in with the green tomatoes when we jar them?

do you like pickles? i've never actually made pickled green tomatoes but i think that is what a lot of people do with them. some vinegar and a little salt and whatever spices you like. :) for high enough acidic things a boiling water bath canning process should be ok. just make sure you use enough vinegar or lemon juice to provide enough acid. the tomatoes will also have some acid in them (but that can vary by variety of tomatoes).

i would quarter the tomatoes at the least or perhaps sixths or eights (depending upon size of tomato).

onions are always good in pickles. a lot of people also use garlics.

We only add a tsp of salt and water. We usually can them up in thick slices, stacked up in the jar...this way you can roll them in flour and cornmeal and fry them when you get them out. You can use pickle crisp if you want them to retain some crispness. Boiling water bath/steam canning only...if you pressure can, they are mush.

Good to hear that you have a freezer to use for your preserves... As for mine, I have grapes, corn, mangoes, corn is very good as a preserve good... I hope to hear from your crops soon...

Crops are MONTHS away. So cold here. usually get potatoes in on Good Friday, peas shortly after that. Then make sure frost is done before setting out anything else/ May be June before we get anything to eat from the garden.
