My big accomplishment for the day was filling about 600 jars of salsa. Yep, that's right! I went to the cannery today to work on salsa. Our shift was responsible for canning 3000 jars of salsa. I was working one cranky automatic jar filler and the salsa was piping hot. It was pretty interesting how it all works and thankfully, I only burned myself once. I think I did leave a couple of quarts on the floor and maybe another quart on my clothes and shoes but other than that I am pretty proud of the job I did. Our crew did all those jars in 2 hours and I think there were less than 20 of us--so that is pretty good. I haven't tasted it yet--but it sure smelled good so I brought some home to try!
