It's the time of year for quart jars, isn't it? I don't do much canning (and when I say "much," I mean "zero"), but when I see the jars and lids in the stores, I think of grandma and her cellar full of jars.
My dad cans tuna, fresh off the boat, and salmon (sometimes in tomato sauce), fruit... and pickles.
My sister cans her homemade salsa.
I've never canned a thing. My quart jars are used to hold marbles or bouquets of Queen Anne's Lace.
*Katie swears that the total sale at the cute tomato vendors' on Saturday increased by $3.00 with the addition of the heirloom tomato pictured. I have to admit that I wasn't really paying attention -- I was enchanted by the green-black-purply-ness of the tomatoes. Just in case it was $3.00, it wasn't thrown into the tomato sauce pot; we savored it in small wedges. Mmmmmm, it was very, very good, though I'm not sure it was three dollars good. ; )
