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.

Sara, sorry to hear that you have to deal with MS, but you keep going. That is the main thing. You do alot, that is for sure!! We did apple pressing late yesterday afternoon. Got 27 quarts canned up. Plus a few more my daughter in law took home. Not all for us. My mom and dad get a few, and my cousin will get 14. I want to do another batch for us in jars and then the moonshine. Only one jar did not seal, a dang kerr lid. Always have trouble with them. But this year you use what you can find. I got our first batch of apples dried as well. I like to have a couple gallon bags of those done. I take them in my lunch alot. Happy Canning

Sharon you are surely a canner deluxe. I cooked posole once but never thought about canning it. May have to give it a try sometime down the road.

Michelle - gotta have apple pie moonshine!!!

Canned 7 pints of apple pie filling this morning. Used clear-gel. Turned out okay. Will have to wait until I make an apple pie for our Apple Pie Sunday to know how it taste.

As you all know I deal with MS fatigue so I have to prep one day and can the next for most recipes. I prepped the apples yesterday and covered with water with 1/4 cup bottled lemon juice and stored overnight in the fridge. The apples did not discolor and were still crisp. I also measured all dry and liquid ingredients so this morning all I had to do was follow the recipe.

Sharon that sounds like a lot of canning to me!! Everyone does what they want or need to do big or small. I just cleaned out the final plants from my garden, the season is done. Froze last night. Just checked the apples, it is apple cider time. And don't forget a batch of apple pie moonshine. woo hoo. That will be the last of my canning for the year, oh except french fries, got to try that. lol Happy canning

Wow you girls are so busy!!!

Canned Coleslaw: I finally made it this year. It is like a pickle relish so it stays crunchy. You can drain some of the brine/juice and add mayo if you want or not.

Did a lot of canning this year and am still working on more.

~Strawberry Jam
~Strawberry Pie Filling
~Spiced Blueberry Jam
~Sour Cherry Jam
~Sour Cherry Pie Filling
~Red Onion Jam
~Amaretto Cherries
~Peaches canned with Maple Syrup
~Chili Beans
~Anasazi Beans
~British Style Beans
~Cole Slaw
~Dilly Beans
~Wild Raspberry Jam
~Zucchini Relish
~Cherry Balsamic Jam (for meats)

Well, after typing that it doesn't sound like much. Probably because I have been busy freezing and dehydrating too :)

To can:

~Venison Stew
~Posole
~Minestrone Soup

I haven't ventured into meat yet so the stews will be a first :)

Jaime, thanks for the link for the mustard. That sounds awesome!

I have made a freezer coleslaw before but never heard of canning it. Good luck with trying that. The jars all look so pretty. Got to get out and check my apples again. Time to can some apple cider, and dry some apples too. I have plenty in the freezer yet. Happy
canning.

Ok Jaime, spill it... Bourbon brown sugar mustard... Gotta try that!
AuntJamelle Posted - Sep 15 2020 : 1:00:04 PM


This past weekend I put up some Garlic Onion Jelly and Indonesian Satay Sauce - thought the Garlic Jelly looked so pretty in the jars!

I've also done a TON of Salsa Verde this year - my tomatillos went NUTS!

Also have done a couple of types of Red Pepper Jelly, Bourbon Brown Sugar Mustard, Dijon Mustard and Asian Plum Sauce...
Ninibini Posted - Sep 15 2020 : 08:51:54 AM
Yes! It really tastes like pineapple, Jana!

I' m going to make zucchini bread with the shreds, of course; but I was thinking of trying it in cherry pineapple dump cake, because it is so similar to crushed pineapple in texture! I'll get my 24 year old son to eat his veggies one way or another, by hook or by crook! Lol.

I am considering trying the chunks in my mother's Easter pineapple casserole. The texture is different, but the taste is the same, and I think it will be fabulous. I'm planning on tossing them on salads, too. Very good, truly.

I will probably try the coleslaw because nobody else enjoys it. One batch should last me a while. I'll definitely let you know how it turns out!

Oh! And I am pretty sure the lady recommended Pickle Crisp for those who like it crunchy. I don think she used it herself, and I probably won't, either, because I try not to use any additives. We will see. If it isn't crunchy enough on the first try, I might try the Pickle Crisp the second time around.

Hugs,

Nini

Nini, I just recently heard about pineapple zucchini and it sound interesting. Does it really work? I find your question interesting about canning coleslaw and would love to hear if it works and whether or not it stays crunch after canning.

Nini, I'm worn out just reading about what all you are putting up and doing. I'm going to have to think on canning coleslaw just can't get my mind around that one. If you do try it let us know how it turns out.

Yesterday I put up 4 pints of chicken mushroom broth. Must say the broth was so good.

Later in the week I hope to work on putting up apple pie filling.

Oh, Jana! You've been jarring up some pretty great stuff! You GO, girl! You have some pretty blessed friends, indeed!

Sara, I've had that lid popping thing happen before... we're you pressure canning? That is always when it has happened to me. The jars have always sealed up fine. It's that final pop that matters!

Lisa, are you jarring up any of your beef? So good,I'm telling ya!

My garden... I have to idea why, but God has blessed us with so much produce this year...and it's still giving! I am very grateful - thank You, Lord! - and have been thrilled to share with friends and family. We still have plenty. But my fridge and counters are so full... With my hubby's appointment schedule, I am having a hard time keeping up!

I got a really good deal on bananas last week, so I tackled those and my zucchini this past weekend. I made pineapple zucchini (shredded AND chunks), monkey butter (oooh myyy!), and lemon pineapple juice concentrate. Last night I made monkey butter muffins, substituting the monkey butter for the usual bananas and orange juice in my recipe. I added some chopped macadamia nuts an white chocolate chips for added flair. They are delicious! BUT I forgot there is already sugar in the monkey butter,and forgot to reduce the sugar in the recipe accordingly. They're a bit sweet, but my hubby doesn't mind. I think I'm going to crumble up half of them and freeze them to sprinkle on top of vanilla ice cream later. As tasty as they are, that's just too much sweet for me. ;)

I have to can my mixed hot peppers yet, as well as plain zucchini. I wanted to do celery, just so it was cut up and ready for chicken or Turkey salad, but I read that they are not approved for canning, so I suppose I'll be dehydrating and freezing them instead. I also need to get salsa made and then make tomato sauce from all of my frozen tomatoes. Just waiting for things to get a wee bit cooler outside.

I am wondering if any of you have canned cole slaw? I still have cabbage coming in,and saw a YouTube video on how to do this. I'm the only one who enjoys Cole slaw, so I thought canning it up in pint jars would be perfect. Plus I think it's a vinegar version, so it might be delish on sandwiches! Any thoughts or recipes, girls??

Hugs,

Nini

I have never heard of multiple popping before sealing Sara, glad it worked out! My worst fear is loosing count of the popping, so I end up checking each one just to confirm success. The funny thing about the hot pepper canning is I don't eat them, spicy food do not agree with me, I make and give them to friends at our annual reunion weekend (next weekend), who keep telling me they are not hot enough. This year I left the seeds and membranes in everything. The hot sauce was a new addition because I accidentally planted a Serrano pepper plant which did very well. A true labor of love.

Jana, you have been a busy canner - good job. I've eaten cowboy candy but never made it - it is tasty. Happy canning.

All four of my jars popped 3 or 4 times before they settled down for a good seal. That has never happened before. Don't know why.

This week I have peppers coming in like crazy here in SoCal, so I have been making pickled carrots and jalapeno peppers, cowboy candy and hot sauce with Serrano peppers. Bell peppers have been sliced, bagged and put into the freezer. To mellow things out a bit I also made apple butter yesterday. The week before my tomatoes peeked in ripeness, so I made and canned marinara sauce, along with chicken broth. This week I also planted my garden with a second round of leafy vegetables, root vegetables, zucchini and winter squash.

4 pints of chicken broth w/ semi-dry sherry in pressure canner. I like to use chicken broth w/ semi-dry sherry in mushroom recipes.

You girls are making me crave chili!!!

The pepper jam came out excellent, Sara. I am so very pleased with it. My cousin said she would like to make some with me to give as gifts this year, too! I told her we should make homemade crackers to go with them!!!

I canned up 3 pints of leftover pulled pork from dinner tonight. Oh my gosh, so good. I used my citrus tea along with BBQ sauce and a few other ingredients and slow cooked it for over 12 hours.. It was incredible! I served it on buttery toasted rolls. My husband had THREE sandwiches!!! LOL!!!

Have fun this week, girls!

Hugs -

Nini
