Salsa after Midnight

The last few years, we've been getting enough fruit off of our trees to make salsas, jellies, wines, etc. This year our harvest didn't really pay any attention to our schedules or the weather. The peaches started falling off the trees while I was in Minnesota. And when I returned home, we were in the middle of a 100+ degree heat wave. What to do?
Salsa after Midnight!!!

Dave took the the propane base from the turkey fryer and set it up outside. I set up a chair so that he'd have a place to put the jars as they came out of the canner. The only mishap was that I thought he was waving at the camera so I happily stood there taking pictures...only to find that he was actually waving for longer tongs so that he'd stop steaming his hands!

Anyway, it was fun. The house stayed cool, and the peach salsa is darn tasty. :-)
