Fall is in the air...and I am trying my hand at canning for the first time. I have a sweet neighbor who shares any excess in her garden, and she has taken me under her wing to teach me how to preserve all that garden goodness. You can't get much more frugal than 14 jars of gorgeous FREE tomatoes! Peaches and pears are being sold by the case at the local market, and I also tried my hand at canning peaches. I was so excited today that I bought another case of peaches and a bunch of pears. My children love canned fruit, and this year it is much cheaper to can them myself than to buy even case-lot sale canned fruit.
