Canning Recipe for Peach Salsa

Canning Recipe for Peach Salsa

For the last three summers, Cathy and I have jumped into the world of canning. We started off small, just doing applesauce and sliced peaches. Last year we experimented with peach salsa. It was fabulous! We have also canned pickles, peach jam, blueberry jam, apple butter, apple pie filling and apple jelly in the past. It is so delightful to have these goodies in the middle of winter!

Last weekend, I went to purchase the peaches for our peach salsa. I originally wanted to use the little orchard right down the road. However, we had terenchal rain on Saturday and they are closed Sunday. So, off to Carter’s Mountain I went. My intentions were to make it an adventure day for my boys and take them peach picking. Wouldn’t you know it, they both fell asleep in the car on the ride there! I opted to not wake them and went to check out the pre-picked fruit. I told one of the workers that I needed peaches for canning. She told me the best deal would be getting the bruised and very ripe peaches. Since I was canning that day, these peaches were perfect! I ended up getting a half bushel for $5.00!

We used garlic, tomatoes and jalapenos from Cathy’s garden. I bought red bell pepper, cilantro and red onions for about $4.00. We ended up with 19 half pint jars of salsa and 5 half pints of freezer peach jam for $9.00! Plus we had enough sliced peaches left over for each of us to make a cobbler.

How To Potty Train Your Dog

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PurinaPetPack #CollectiveBias

Do you want to potty train your dog? Read my tips on how to train your dog to potty outside by using a bell.

I hear bells, and I couldn’t be happier. That means there will not be a puddle. We have a puppy. We love our puppy. The children have dreamed of this puppy for years, and now she is here. That is why it was so important to teach our puppy how to go potty outside.

I forgot the following things when we got a puppy.

1. They are a lot like babies, and they are learning non-stop.
2. They do not sleep at night.
3. They chew everything.
4. They need help learning the rules.
5. You can’t leave them home alone for a very long time.

All of these reasons and more are why I am an avid Amazon Prime Subscribe & Save user. I even buy her Purina® ONE® SmartBlend True Instincts Real Salmon and Tuna on Amazon. I do so because it is cheaper with the Subscribe & Save option.

You can take advantage of the same offers:

I do not have to worry about running out of food because you can set it to deliver when you need it. You can tell she knows when it arrives on my doorstep.

Save money and have more time playing with your dog by making sure they always have food in stock. Save big by getting Purina on Amazon Subscribe & Save.

Having Amazon Prime allows me more time to focus helping my pet learn all the skills she will need to stay safe and happy. She is learning to sit, stay, release, heel, roll over, lay down and potty training.

She even rings a bell to let us know she needs to potty.

Fun Swim Party Games

I love a good swimming party. The key to having a great swim party is fun swim party games. I came up with a couple of games that are easy to play and inexpensive. You will need a couple of items, but you can buy most of them at the dollar store. I personally buy mine on Amazon.

I would also suggest reading this post on how to keep kids safe from a swim instructor. When you decide to have a swim party if the children aren’t able to swim on their own make sure you hire a lifeguard, in fact, you should have one on site, just to make sure. You will be busy and not able to watch the kids. You can usually hire one for $15 an hour. It is worth the expense because safety is the best investment you can make.
