October 23 national Canning Day Too

I've always been fascinated at the fact that people can keep up with the different food holidays. So today I decided to look them up what are the national food holidays. I was surprised to see that today October 23 is national Canning Day and national Boston Cream Pie Day. I'm starting to do a little food photography, And thought I'd leave you this little picture. It is also Boston Cream Pie Day, forgot to include it, "Thank You Rhonda" : ) for finding my lost brain cell. Lol, I really was going to say something about it too, : (

What is that stuff in your jar?

Well, I found this great recipe for hot pepper mustard so today I thought I'd make half the recipe just to see if I liked it. All was going well until I notice that I was low on 8oz jars, so off to the store I went. When I got home all I had to do with the mustard was add clear jel, can and process. Boy was it thick, so I put it though a food mill, still thick. I processed it and it sure looks pretty, but I think I have made a batch of cement because I forgot to use only half of the clear jell. Anyone got a chesel? Looks like bits of tapioca in it too. :)
