Falls Harvest and ‘Putting Up’ food for the pantry

Visit any country market or “U-Pick” apple orchard and your sure to see all of the harvest on colorful display.  I don’t think squash is ever as reasonably priced as it is this time of year!  The sight of jars and jars neatly placed in rows inspires me to start ‘putting up’ the pantry as well.  I usually only jar applesauce and occasionally tomato sauce.  Either way, it is very satisfying to see the seasons bounty neatly preserved for another day.
