Rhubarb Pie.. Uh Crisp

Now for something completely different….

I had planned on making a rhubarb pie tonight and thought I’d shoot it too.

Since wordpress.com doesn’t support flash objects I can’t embed a slideshow (or at the very least, I don’t know how). So here’s a link to the album instead.

Canning

It’s been two busy nights.

Canning still life

Last night we bought a pressure canner and decided to do a trial run on several pounds of rhubarb my parents had brought down from my grandparents house.

Since it’s the first time that I’ve ever canned, I was a bit frazzled. Everything went okay with the rhubarb. We now have 4 quarts of rhubarb preserved. I’m not entirely sure what we’ll do with the rhubarb yet. Perhaps once Christmas rolls around we’ll make a rhubarb pie. Yum….

Tonight was a tomato run. This was more work entirely. Peeling, dicing, canning. With 1 minute to go in the process I realized that I had forgot to put in the lemon juice. Nuts. The canner is cooling now. I’ll have to try to reprocess the tomatoes tomorrow.

I wanted a picture to denote canning, but didn’t want to spend all night on it (I already spent too much time messing with the setup for this one). So, this is what I could do. I’m not really happy with how the black turned out. I would have liked it darker. I bet that if I had spent a bit more time engineering the light, I could have figured it out.

Such is life. I’ll have to spend sometime later this week figuring it out.
