What are ya'll canning?
I need to learn canning, and get off my rump and start my Garden again. I would can Peas, Beans, Squish, Cabbage, Jalapeno Carrots with Garlic and Onions and Homemade Pickles. Sweet Bread & Butter for me and Garlic Dill for the Wife !
Canned up salsa then apple jelly so far.
Deal is, when regular canned food runs out you better know how to can your own...
Ya, I need to learn and I know it's easy. Just have to do it right or else get sick real bad or die as well.
We canned up a bunch of salsa last night. We also are using up the mountain of tomatoes we had by just roasting em up with squash and red onion (or whatever else I have) to freeze in jars for tomato sauce. Its really simple to just chunkem up roastem in a big pan for several hours till the liquids gone them blendem with a bit of oil for a general purpose tomato based sauce
Not canning - YET - but did pickle both Jalapenos and Bell Peppers so far this year:
Tuna in August, apple cider this last month, apple pie filling and apples next week end. Going to can up some stew mix, meat, potatoes carrots, probably some salmon when we start catching them next month.
Canning is pretty easy, it is a lot of work. Pretty easy way to store food, we pressure cook everything, never had any problem. You need .75 protein for each person each day, so it makes planning easy.
Just finished 20 pounds of berries last week. My wife and I love to can. It's our time together in the kitchen. I will be making beer this week. The whole community smell so good from our work.
did some jam, pie filling, salsa, pepper jelly and dilly beans the past couple weeks. doing pickled hot peppers with the extra's so they dont go to waste. they are nice on a sandwich
I pretty much freeze all my berries. Keep some for breakfast and pancake additions, and then will start into making jam the first week or so of December. Christmas gifts for the family and some friends.
Sounds fun and is certainly a necessity. I helped some folks in Idaho can boxes and boxes of Veggies, many years ago. I saw my first Moose Cow there in Idaho, and it is a Beautiful State.
