What's Bringing Me Joy
If you follow me on social media, I’m sure you’ve seen posts about my veggie garden! It’s been doing super well this summer, with a massive crop of tomatoes I’ve already started harvesting and using in cooking. However there’s way more than I can eat by myself, so in the next week or two I may cook them down into a pasta sauce and can them up for later use.
Which is an easy transition into my latest little hobby - canning! Water bath canning, to be precise. At Christmas I made preserves and found the process of not only cooking the food but learning how to properly seal and store it to be very rewarding; plus after many compliments on my Paddington-worthy marmalade I really want to play around with flavours in jams a bit more!
