I enjoy canning. Time consuming but not difficult. Results in homemade deliciousness. Leaves you with a sense of accomplishment. I consider it meditation time. Felt like meditating one day last week and created a batch of salsa. Just a small batch, seven half-pints. Pretty tasty. The cat didn't help but she was curious. Who else is canning? What are you making?
(For the record, the cat doesn't get onto the table or the counters. I set these jars on the floor to take advantage of the warming glow of the sun.)
