|Ketchup batch of 2010|
That was just one of the many steps of a long process. To be honest I'm not sure it is worth all the effort (read trouble), but it occupied an afternoon and we have ten jars of homemade fruit ketchup.
Watching that pot while it boiled and making sure it wasn't burning at the bottom was somewhat nightmarish, but it didn't boiled over nor burned, I made darn (read slowly and carefully) sure of that! Hubby mentioned something about it being an "experiment in surface tension". Ah!
I enjoy making preserves, but what I really LOVE is when people are eating what I've made!
