Peaches and Tomatoes

Last night I had my first foray into canning. Last week a friend showed me the process so I figured I should put my new "skill" to use! It really wasn't as scary as I thought it would be! The peaches look good, however the jars aren't as pretty. Our water has lots of minerals in it and I had read if you add vinegar to the water bath it would keep the minerals off the jars. Obviously from the picture you can see I forgot to add it! Oh time!

I also put these tomatoes in the freezer for use over the winter. Connie tells me the skin will fall off when they are thawed and they'll be nice and mushy for the soups I'll be putting them in. Getting ready for winter!
