Whats been happening?

Well I had another weekend full of food and goodness! Bountiful Baskets was pretty awesome this week, also the fact that we volunteered and made a difference was quite fun. We did extras by doing that but we met some great people and had a good time. Not to mention the fact that we also got a workout! 

Here is a picture of the Bountiful Basket we picked up today. Celery, Pineapple, Onions, Pears, Apples, Bananas, Romain Lettuce, Roma Tomatoes, Green Peppers, Cauliflower, Sweet Potatoes. Yet again all of this was for $15!

I had some pears laying around from the previous week that I needed to do something with. So I broke out the big ole' book of ball canning recipes and came up with a Peppery Pear Salsa. 
This is some of the best salsa I have ever had, and better yet I managed to can 6 pint jars of it! Although two of them are already gone! 

I also tried to can some grape juice concentrate! It worked, everything sealed right up! Now the hardest part is to wait three weeks before I can even think about trying it! 

On a final note I wanted to pass on a project to my foodie friends out there in the North Ft Worth Area! We will be hosting for the first time ever a Food Swap! Do you know what a food swap is? Check it out over on the other blog and be sure to become a follower of it! The first event is going to be on October 28th at my house. The whole idea of the food swap is everything is homemade, home grown, or foraged for. Anything that fits into that category can be brought to be traded for other things.
