an ambitious fall

perhaps i just do better in fall. but, perhaps i just can't remember last summer.
either way, i feel infinitely more in tune with september. i have five quarts of tomato sauce in the freezer, four quarts of frozen corn, four jars of pickles and seven jars of salsa.

and i'm not done yet—!

starting on monday and continuing through the week i have plans to make:

  • applesauce
  • curried green tomatoes
  • canned tomatillo salsa
  • pickled jalapenos
  • pickled red onions
  • nectarine jam (or jelly?)
  • whole tomatoes
  • (possibly) more salsa or ketchup?
  • infused liquors (pear, hot pepper, other)
roasting a chicken on monday too. looking forward to it.

somehow the whole allure of canning—rooted to the kitchen, doing as much as you can before things go bad, looking towards the colder months on the horizon—resonates with me.
