Then I roe the swells back,

I just love those typos!

Well, while Amos is contemplating the navel of his cool nautical Saturday, I'm plotting how to turn my house into a huge steamer. IT IS TIME. Too many tomatoes in the fridge to fit the bucket of wild mustang grapes in. So I must start canning.

Backward steps from the actual canning mean rounding up and washing jars, running out for a bottle of lemon juice, making sure I have enough pots for all of the hot water, having a space to let things cool, and plenty of stuff for the floor to dry up spills so I don't kill myself with all of that juicy fruit and hot water and such. And then it has to simmer in a hot bath for 40 minutes.

MOM, you're gonna love these jars come January and February, but be patient while the house gets a little hot today.

After that, I might make some mustang grape jelly. This stuff is the best--and my son even prefers it to strawberry, his previous favorite.
