Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard & More......09/06/2012
Since I harvested so many tomatoes this past Sunday, I finally made some ketchup!! Oh yum!! We have been out of ketchup for some time now. I use a recipe from the Ball Blue Book.
The ketchup cooked all day until it was nice and thick!
I ended up with 6 Half Pints and 1 Pint of Ketchup!!
While the ketchup was cooking, Erin had posted a challenge called "Medicine Cabinet".
I know I'm the last person to be issuing demands and challenges since I've been such a bad blogger lately, but since I put up the kitchen photo and it is that time of year, how 'bout you share a photo of where you do your canning and a photo of what you have stashed away so far? I'll call this the "Medicine Cabinet" challenge, because you have to admit that for us like minded folks looking at photos of other's canning spaces and
under-bed storage pantries is like other peoples' fascination with medicine cabinets!
Here's what my place looked like on Labor Day Monday.

At the other end of the kitchen.
Doesn't everyone have their computer in the kitchen and veggies everywhere??
There's even canning jars under the table on a chair!
The ketchup cooking at it's earlier stage before it was transferred into a different pot.
Don't you like our recycling center?? A bag hanging on a knob and a box for the paper???
This is the cupboard in the basement....
and the other side.....
I started stashing tomatoes on another shelf downstairs. That shelf will have to be reorganized soon to accommodate the rest of "The Italian's" tomatoes!!
While I was down there taking pics, I took this pic of the chest freezer and all it's frost!!
So, I defrosted it , reorganized and it's still full!!
There are also two side by side refrigerator/freezers, garlic hanging and potatoes stored in baskets.
I think you get the picture!!
What's been going in or out of your Cupboard lately.....and how's your mess???
