The first thing we will do with the tomatoes will be to make chili sauce. Next will be some quarts of chopped tomatoes and then I'm not sure. Ron has already cleaned the peppers and I have several dozen jars washed. We will cut the peppers up first thing tomorrow and then go from there.
While in Arthur we went to the bulk food store and also a salvage store. I picked up bacon for $1.34 a pound and got 2 cases (24 #s each case). Our son wanted some so that is why we bought a lot. I will can most of mine. We eat bacon and eggs for supper a lot, use it in quiche and make potato soup with it; so for $1.34 that is a cheap meal.
We also stopped in an Amish shop that had ground Black Angus Beef, 81/19 for $2.19 #. It came in 10 # rolls and you had to buy 4 rolls for that price. We will be going down to the auction one last time this season sometime in September and will stop by and see about getting some of the beef then.
