My problem? I was using old(ish) wheat. I canned it in 1998, and I thought wheat was just wheat and could last for 30 years and come out as good as ever at any time. NO. Not so! I opened a bucket of wheat I bought a month ago, used it, and everything came out beautiful! Lesson learned. Use new wheat for breads and keep the old for cereals.
Also...I won a blog drawing!!! And guess what I got! A canning set! I won it off of my all time favorite food blog Chef Tess Bakeresse. I am so excited, what with my obsession with food storage and all. Can't wait to use it...I am thinking salsa should be a good inaugural project. Although, I am planning a jam session first. Strawberry freezer jam, that is. Trying it with honey this time, because Chef Tess said I could.
Off to eat my homemade whole wheat tomato basil tortillas. Who wants to come over for lunch? :)
