Harvest from the "Neighbors"

Wow!  That's a lot of berries!

So we've decided to start canning!  We've been talking about it for a while now and this weekend we started.  Our 23qt pressure canner (biggest pot ever!) arrived Saturday morning and we broke it in last night.  We picked the above fruit from two houses around town.  The berries and tomoatoes came from the in-laws neighbor house and the apples are from Morgan's mom's friend's (our hygienist) mom's house (they also gave us our couches three years ago!).

Last night we turned the pounds and pounds of blackberries into 20 pints of really good, really sweet blackberry jam.
This afternoon we are going to be making salsa, spaghetti sauce, and applesauce. 

Can you guess what you're getting for Christmas this year...? :)
