I say tom-ay-to, you say tom-ah-to

Yes, the beloved community garden is in full bloom. The tomatoes are out of control, much to our delight. This week has been a week of canning sodium free spaghetti sauce and sodium free (and spicy) mango salsa that should take us through the year. No more depending on Trader Joe's some what runny sodium free spaghetti sauce. Our little joke in the Kang house, after making a sodium free dinner, is for one of us to say "Do you know what this needs? .....salt!" With these two little creations, there was none of that. They were delicious, even without the salt. Next week? I think I am going to try tomato soup, as I have really missed my tomato soup (with corn, of course) and grilled cheese sandwiches on the side.

Side note: Thank you, Ball, for making silver canning lids and rings this year. They sure do look lovely.

The silver canning lids are really a nice touch.

I thought you were going to spraypaint them? ...the lids, that is.

I ate some of Rachel's yummy apple pie. You're lucky she didn't win. There would be no living with the bragging that would ensue.

I like the silver lids too. I love seeing home canning all lined up like that.
