So far I've put up dilly beans, kidney beans and today is turkey stock. When I'm done today I will have canned 24 quarts. I still have 3 turkey carcasses to make more stock from.

Yes!! It gives me great pleasure to can garden-in-a-jar for my grandchildren. When I was raising my own, I had reason to can but so little time. I still did it. Now, I have the time and the grandkids give me the reason. It’s so much more fun!

Sara, how fun to can for grandbabies.

Seven pints pear slices for my newest grand babies who will start eating solid foods next spring/summer.

Plus two pear breads (for the freezer) and a pear/apple crumble using Krista’s recipe on the “pear crumble” thread.

I agree! My full pantry is my happy place!

Last night I finished 5 quarts seasoned tomato sauce. Almost done with the tomatoes, just one 5 gallon bucket of greens that are still ripening, so I get a slight reprieve.

pop goes the jar lid. Great job Sara, on all the canning your doing. Your canning shelves must be full to the brim. Nice to go there and pick out what you want to make for meals. Enjoy

This morning I canned 4 pints red kidney beans with Tex-Mex seasoning. All sealed so I am a happy canner.

I came up with six quarts and seven pints diced tomatoes by the end of a long canning day.

Oh! Judith! You made me laugh out loud! Don’t tell the hubby, it’ll give him too much ammunition!!

I once set the water running in the laundry room deep sink; something needed to be soaked I think. Came back 15 minutes later to find two inches of water across the room! I was headed out the door—-good thing I saw it before I left!,

Judith, I'm also pondering the concept of a yearly hiatus from the hubby. I wonder how I could convince him to take up a six-week long hobby like hunting? #128521;
YellowRose Posted - Nov 18 2019 : 12:13:14 PM
Judith, thanks for the recipe.

This morning I pressured canned 4 pints red kidney beans with ham.

In the morning I hope to can red kidney beans with Tex-Mex spices/herbs to be used in chili.

After canning tomorrow I'll still have two more lbs of red kidney beans. May let them sit on the shelve a little longer so I can do split pea soup and more broths.

Sara -- I think I do it different every time. This time 3 cups vinegar 1 cup water #8531; cup sugar 2 tablespoons pickling spice, 1 tsp salt. If I put beets in then I use the juice from the can too.
The problem with the flooded kitchen is that my plumber will be gone for 6 weeks. From what I can tell looking under the sink is two of the drain assemblies are cracked and corroded and the whole thing needs to be replaced. Fortunately I have a washtub in the laundry room that will work just fine for now. 20 years ago I would have attempted fixing it myself but now I have no idea where the pipe wrenches are and my arthritic hands don't feel like doing it.

Barbara I'm so sorry for your flooded kitchen. I know that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when you see water gushing out of a pipe. On a lighter side good job on pickling eggs. What brine recipe did you use? I've pickled eggs using left over pickled beets juice.

Sara, I checked my canning books and all only give directions for water bath canning tomato sauce. Sorry I couldn't help you with pressure canning.

Takes water longer to boil over 1000 ft. that's why time is adjusted for high altitudes.

2 dozen pickled eggs. Finally! I shelled them under running water, then went to the pantry to get my step stool so I could get a 2 quart jar on the top shelf. Coming back from the pantry I saw the kitchen floor flooded. Grabbed towels and started pulling everything out from under the sink. Letting it dry out now. DH left for hunting this morning. He wasn't even gone 6 hours before I flooded the kitchen. I wonder what I'll break next. At least I got my eggs pickled; now I have to have patience and wait til they are ready to eat.

7 quarts tomato juice.

Oh dear Sara!
I saw that cold snap heading toward your state; sorry you are in its’ path!

In your downtime, can you offer some advice? I’m finding conflicting information about pressure canning tomato sauce. Some say process at 5# pressure, some say 10# (I’m at 96 ft. Elevation) Being tomatoes I get nervous about doing them right. What do your resources say?

(And please, stay warm!)
YellowRose Posted - Nov 12 2019 : 04:48:43 AM
Sara, glad you were able to save your tomatoes for sauce.

It's 22 this morning so my canning is on hold until I see 40 degree temps again. Should be warmer next week.

Today I put up 16 pints tomato sauce. Tomorrow I still need to process the juice that drained off the tomatoes.

When the frost was hitting I picked all the tomatoes that were showing yellow or red—about 40 lbs. I put them and also five plants with still-green fruit on them , roots and all, in the garage so they could continue ripening. The plants were hung over a 2x4. Half the fruit finished ripening in a week. So I am still saucing tomatoes even though the garden is dead.

Sara, like you keep several different kinds of dried mushrooms on hand. They "beef" up a lot of dishes.

Sara, you taught me to appreciate mushrooms in my pantry! I now make sure I always keep dried mushrooms in the house!
saram Posted - Nov 09 2019 : 10:14:30 PM
Lisa, I’m waiting to hear how your broth turned out!
I’ve been trying to empty my freezer too for steer and hog. I LOVE raising hogs for our use, they are such efficient converters of everything! With all the produce processed through the summer I have a stockpot full of miscellaneous kitchen scraps every day to feed to them, and they happily turn it into bacon and sausage for me! (The steer we are buying from a friend and splitting among our 4 families).

Michele, thanks for the shout out, but only about 1/2 of my jars are pressure canned. I do lots of jams and pickled green beans in the water bath, plus dill pickles, bread and butter pickles and apples. I’m trying to convert all the veggies that take up space in my freezer to pressure canned versions. So my roasted Anaheim peppers are now diced green Chile’s in jars, blanched green beans became canned, some with bacon. And I played a little with broths and a couple of dinner recipes (because the whole concept is so addicting once you start!) and I’ve switched to pressure for all my tomatoes on the assumption that it is a safer process.

Our favorite recipe for this year is candied jalapeños, also called cowboy candy. EVERYONE loves these, on burgers, sandwiches or just out of the jar. Hot and sweet, they’d also go over cream cheese for a dip on crackers. It was a great discovery since we somehow planted about a dozen jalapeño plants this summer! I picked about 20 pounds through the season! Thank you pressure canner!

Yes mushroom beef broth does sound yummy. I never find the deals on mushrooms that you do Sara!
Clearing out freezer to get ready for a quarter side of beef (lasts us over a year).
I had a bunch of soup bones from my last quarter as well as some a neighbor gave me (she doesn't like to fiddle with them).
I put some in oven with veges, then added to stockpot and cooked for a few hrs.. Added some bay. Will strain and can tomorrow. Save the beef for stew or bbq depending on how much there is.
Two of the packs were thawed and will be given to dogs since I am transitioning to raw food diet for them. They love it, plus the bones really scrub their teeth!

Thanks Michelle for the sweet words.

I'm running behind on ordering my groceries for next week so they will be delivered today. Ordered stew meat on sale and beef shanks to make beef broth to can. Hope to can Monday morning. May add the 8oz mushrooms my sister found in marked down bin and gave me. Beef mushroom broth should be good in many dishes.
