My little "helper"

I am trying my hand at canning this summer.  I have never done it, and wasn't sure how it would go.  I had planned on doing pickles and salsa, but my cucumber plants didn't take very well... so, salsa it is!!!  I had to peel and chop the tomatoes, so I started by tossing them in boiling water until their skins split, and then I tossed them into ice cold water.  This is where my little helper came into play.

He made sure the water was nice and evenly chilled by stirring it with a passion.

 He might have even taste tested the ice cubes to make sure they wouldn't taint the taste of the tomatoes.  He was so cute "helping" mommy with the salsa.

  1. I find it much easier to allow my grandchildren to help than I did my children. You've ahead! He looks like a much loved and cared for child. He obviously has a special momma!
