Neat! Of what?

Peaches, tomatoes, apples, pears and pluots.

Pluots are sort of like a cross between a plum and an apricot in an analogous manner to nectarines being a cross between a plum and a peach.

tl/dr would be "fruit geek thing", I guess.

That sounds exciting. Do you have a canning machine?

Nah, just hot water bath. I'm only doing fruit (including tomato sauce) and maybe pickles for my pickle-loving kid.

Yea, he's hot but he's cis, pushing thirty, doing something good little mommies don't need to know about that has something to do with animal rights and explosives, and pretty much taken anyway. ;)

I wanted to learn how to can non-acidic foods too, but the pickle-lover is the only one of the giant economy sized pack of mixed nuts I call "my kids" who spends much money on dear old mum any more and he got me a dehydrator and a new freezer instead of a pressure cooker.

No worries, It's all good.
