VIDEO TIME! 3 Ounces of Product To Carry-On?!

Dear Reader-

The travel season is upon us. We all want to look great for the family (especially if you have those in-laws, let us be honest.) But I personally don’t want to see my checked baggage rummaged through or thrown carelessly about, or worse-LOST. So I carry on my baggage whenever I possibly can. I actually had an airline employee take my carry on luggage when they ran out of room for carry-ons in the overhead compartments. I begged him no, and explained to him I had lost luggage before. He promised it would make it. It did not. I froze in Montana in December for two days until it was returned.

But the 3 ounce clear Ziploc regulations make everything so hard! So we break down out 3 favorite travel size products to make your holidays a bit easier.

Merry Christmas,

ATCT

p.s- During your many family and social gatherings, keep a level head with those that rub you the wrong way. I accomplish this with Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

Canning tomatoes- scary!

Dear Reader-

I’m an active pickler, but I haven’t delved into a lot of other canning. They scare me! Ptomaine this, botulism that, who wants to give their friends and family food poisoning?!

But I make a lot of spaghetti sauce, and making it with my own canned tomatoes is an inviting idea. So, I attempt one lowly jar of tomatoes in my canning bath with a batch of pickles.

The recipe is easy. Peel the tomatoes and put them in the jar with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to balance out acidity and kill botulism as it matures. Great, my #1 worry come to pass. I put the jar into the canning bath and set the timer for a long 85 minute processing time. Thirty minutes in I yell out a string of expletives, realizing I forgot the death-averting lemon juice. Failure.

It cools on the counter, waiting to be tossed. I’m so mad at this point I get in the car, drive to the fruit stand, and buy more tomatoes because now I have something to prove. Sterlizing more jars, remembering the wretched lemon, I cook on, for 85 long, hot minutes.

My stove was working overtime. It was a lot of work for two prideful jars of darned tomatoes!

Not my best pickling day. But I will forge on!
