Canning Tomatillos

We begin buy going out into the beautiful gardens, getting our feet into the dirt, and start picking away all the ripe tomatillos. We picked a couple 5 gallon buckets, all ready to make salsa verde!

 Then, after we wash and peel them, we cut them and cook them down in low heat, making sure they don't burn at the bottom!                                                                

Those two big pots cook down to one,(after a couple of hours). Now we begin to stir the salsa for another couple of hours until its cooks down a lot more! We want it to be thick. Patience..... stir and stir..

 Once the salsa verde is done, we simply boiled our mason jars and the lids too, and the pouring begins. We carefully seal each one, and there we have it! David, the canning expert is in the back getting ready to feed the dogs.
