Thank you Sharon for the recipe. I have made one like that before with my grapes. Though you fill the jar up with grapes, but regardless, simple and easy. I never thought about doing it with cranberries. We did try pressing some once but the yield was very small. They are kind of dry. My husband drinks alot of cranberry juice, so would be a good thing to try. We do have a marsh 15 miles away, I would have to check and see if they are still selling or not. good luck with the soups Sara. I agree with everyone can those frozen soups up, be just like canning your homemade ones.

I looked through my canning books and they all agree on not canning dairy so I won't be canning any of the frozen soups with milk or cream just to be on the safe side.

Green Tomato Relish. It is wonderful with a bowl of white beans.

Love green tomatoes -- you can do almost as much with them as you can with ripe tomatoes; fried, relish, pies.

Love green tomatoes too. Don't have enough to warrant canning, may ferment instead.
Canned 36 pints of dried beans. I got some when we cleared out my moms house, and they had been there (ahem), a while.
Kidney, pinto and garbanzo.
Not as fancy as what Sara does, but they'll be good when I need them n a pinch.

Lisa I've canned red kidney beans and pinto but not garbanzo. Let us know how the garbanzo do. When you eat beans as often as I do it's good to have a selection to choose from. Large white lima and butterbeans are my all time favorites.

Sara---I do so love lima beans. My mom could cook them so good and I can taste them now. Hubby is not a big fan so I rarely cook them---but I'm going to have some soon and he get over it.

Barbara 1 lb of dried beans will can 4 pints with a little left over for lunch.

Have mushroom broth bubbling away on the stove. Too cold to use slowcooker in the Yellow Rose Cottage - 30 degrees. I used my last pint yesterday making meatballs. Mushroom broth is one of my favorite broths and so handy to have on hand for many recipes.

Yummy tomatoes. We planted an heirloom variety that gave us two tomatoes. We also planted a little orange cherry tomato that grew as high as the house and gave us many quarts of sweet tomatoes. Too bad it isn't practical to can them.

Sara, I’ve been thinking about you and your pressure canner all summer as I screwed up my courage and taught myself how to pressure can! I've been ‘head down and power through’ my growing season, putting up over 250 jars of summer-in-a-jar. Now that we’ve had our first frost I am going to be free to try some recipes for fun, like canned shelling beans.
I’m so glad to be able to still find you here and know that you are still puttering in your yellow rose cattage!

Sara, all I can say is wow and I'm glad you learned how to pressure can. When you get canning you just don't know when to stop. I know your pantry is beautiful with all it's rows of goodness in a jar.

Micelle hope you find the time to can cranberry juice soon. The only thing I've ever done with cranberries is to make cranberry grog once. It was very good and I used the leavings to make mini cranberry bunt cakes soaked in whiskey for holiday gifts. I've looked for that recipe but have not found it - maybe it will show up because I would like to make it again. I do remember besides the cranberries it had sugar and vodka.

Sara, I’m glad too, and I really owe it to you! My mother water bath canned but never owned a pressure canner. The one I own I bought over 20 years ago and then was afraid to use it! So thank you for your stories of adventure into this wonderful world of food preservation which gave me the courage to strike out and give it a try!
I will confess I am hesitant to serve most of it to my family yet. The meat-based jars make me nervous, not having ever done that before. What if I did it wrong? What if someone gets seriously ill? When I have used meat broth I have boiled it in a separate pan for 10 mins to make me feel better!

Got the cranberries canned, before work one morning. My husband had to take the jars out, but that is ok. I had 7 quarts. Got 3 cups left and in the freezer to make a small batch of cranberry sauce-yummy. Got to get some oranges for that. Saram glad you got brave and pressure canned, you sure did alot. Good for you. YellowRose Sara is a great canner to learn from.

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.

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!

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!
