    Okay I know it sounds stupid but when a recipe asks for a clove of garlic do they mean the whold head or the pieces?

    They mean a section.
    The entire head is called a bulb.

    I made the bulb / clove mistake once. Had some REALLY garlicky dinner that night!

    Make sure you peel and seed your tomatoes...when making the salsa for canning. If you do not peel the tomatoes it gets all gross...tried to tell Dear Sis...but she didn't believe me either!! [​IMG]

    Wash and clean about $4.00 in pennies...that would be 400 pennies total...and put in the bottom of the apple butter pot...supposed to help the butter...but not sure...how. Learned this from a friend who said she learned from the Amish that apple butter should only be made in a copper pot...no copper pot so she subsituted pennies!! LOL

    Pressure cook the jars...it makes for a tighter seal and the product will last much much longer.


    Good luck...have fun!! Post pictures when you are finished.
