Can Can

Cooking has never been one of my favorite things, back in high school I did take a cooking class.

What I thought was called a Spatula was actually called a Turner. (who knew?)

It was a fun class, with the ratio of guys and gals being tilted in the gals column made for some good times.

I achieved an A+ with my French dish of Coq Au Vin topped off with a delicious Chocolate Mousse for my final exam.

So if needed, I can turn it up a notch or two in the kitchen, with my secret chili recipe that is requested quite a bit.

With that said, my wife is the one who truly has the talent for cooking up delicious meals that are healthy and unique.

Truly, I cannot hold a spatula when it comes to my wife's ability to cook.

One of her many talents is her ability to can a variety of different foods ..

From Apple Sauce, Jam, Pears, you name it, my wife can can it!

I decided one day to take a few photos during her canning of Bread and Butter Pickles and Prima Sauce.

I have to say that her Bread and Butter Pickles are in big demand from family and neighbors whenever the word gets out she is canning,

The Prima Sauce I have with my favorite Italian meal, Raviolis and Meatballs.

After the jars are removed from the boiling water, a rhythmic popping sound can be heard emanating from the kitchen.

Each jar lid will give off a popping sound as it seals during the cool down ..

So for the curious minds who want to know what's the difference between a spatula and a turner?

Beautiful. I love Bread and Butter Pickles. I have not made them in decades. Hopefully one day this summer I will make them again.

Looks like a sauce I would love! You seem to have what you need to open a small department store with a food section. 😁
