These beauties were canned by none other than... (DRUM-ROLL, PLEASE) ... Kit! Kit is into pickling and canning lately. For his birthday he got a canner, rack, tools (tongs, etc.) and book-o-canning by Ball. It is a huge book!! He has been perusing it faithfully and looking for produce in season so he can affordably can. I'm thankful for his interest in cooking, recipe finding and preserving since I get to taste the yummy results!!! He even finagled my boys into helping so I could run a couple of errands and work on my sharing time (what a wonderful Daddy!). Gavin was a little work-horse. He loves to help in the kitchen, especially with his Daddy. Be forewarned, however, of stinky breath. Kit pickled garlic ('cause I love it!) and tomatillo salsa. The Applegate household will have pungent breath in a few weeks when it is ready to devour!
Here's the video Kit captured of the boys...I know we've added quite a LOT of videos lately, but bear with me, I can't help but show off my boys!
