Pickled Green Tomatoes ~ Red Tomato Sauce ~ Neko & Rio

Good 40º dampish morning. Heard rain at 1:30 and again about 2:15. Natch Martin is coming over to day to do some work (stack wood on porch, clean up side yard, take down raised beds maybe.... Seems like Martin shows up on rainy days... hope it stops so he doesn't get soaked.


"10-9" ... Repeat ( or ... what did you say? )

PICTURE of the day...
A European Bee Eater..... I think he also ate a rainbow!

Historically this date....
1942 – The last day of the October Matanikau action on Guadalcanal as United States Marine Corps forces withdraw back across the Matanikau River after destroying most of the Imperial Japanese Army's 4th Infantry Regiment.
1945 – Parade in NYC for Fleet Admiral Nimitz and 13 USN/USMC Medal of Honor recipient.
1992 – A 13 kilogram (est.) fragment of the Peekskill meteorite lands in the driveway of the Knapp residence in Peekskill, New York, destroying the family's 1980 Chevrolet Malibu
......Bill... Jeannie.... relatives of your friend Dan?
And births this date include....
1940 – John Lennon, British musician and songwriter (The Beatles) (d. 1980)
1952Sharon Osbourne, English music manager and wife of Ozzy Osbourne
"Wife of drug and alcohol addicted Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon Osbourne comes off like one tough woman. She’s survived cancer, her husband trying to kill her in a drunken rage, and a painful childhood. She’s also had every plastic surgery procedure known to man and has even had her stomach stapled shut in an attempt to “cure” her overeating and bulimia disorders. As recently as 2004, however, Osbourne has said that the operation didn’t work quite like she had hoped and that she still purged frequently, even to her family’s knowledge. She has said that she intends to get help, but whether she has finally conquered the disease or not has yet to be revealed."

Yesterday I decided to pickle and can the green cherry tomatoes Jeannie gave me...
Wash and stem the tomatoes and cut in half...

Sterilize jars, lids, and bands. Chop and smash garlic cloves and chop and de-seed jalapeños....
Mix 1 quart white vinegar, 2 quarts water, and 1 cup canning salt. Bring to boil and boil 5 minutes. Put tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeños in jars and pour in hot liquid. Put on lids and tighten. They will seal in about 1-2 hours. You will hear a "pop" sound. I don't water-bath them because it makes them mushy. This way they stay crisp. Now Bill and I will have spicy tomatoes and "dirty" liquid for our martinis!
With the red-ish tomatoes, I stemmed them and put them in the crockpot with some garlic, chopped jalapeño, garlic seasoning, and spinach. I will can that "sauce" to use with other things, later today.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
