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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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...

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.

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!

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

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.

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

What is apple pie moonshine? I need to find some decent apples.
Sharon, for God's sake that is A LOT!!! Just love when you pop in.
Sara, you are definitely our most consistent year round canning queen
Did another 28 quarts various tomatoes and 7 quarts kerosene pickles (remember Aunt Bee and the pickle episode?)

I canned 10 pints of seasoned hamburger and 12 pints of hot salsa today. I have canned well over 450 jars so far. Not quite done canning.

Lisa, just guessing your kerosene pickles must be kinda hot. I don't grow anything I put up so it's whatever I find in the grocery stores or is given to me so, it's almost a 12 month canning season for me. I do take a break if it's in the 90s - 100s or 40 and below.

Wow we all do alot of canning my goodness. Nini, Sharon just mentioned she canned coleslaw, perfect timing!!! Julie, I have never counted my jars, but I don't come close to that amount, lol, well done. Lisa apple pie moonshine is fresh apple cider, everclear, and then some spices and cinnamon sticks and brown sugar. Got to dig out the recipe. My sister is coming and wants to make some this weekend. I keep thinking I am done canning and then I see or come up with a few more things I want to try.

Michele, you never cease to amaze me! We have had a couple of freezes already but I don't think that the apples are ready yet. We do still have a few quarts of cider in the pantry and 5 gallons in the freezer. So, I am wondering about the french fries. I just saw on a canning fb page someone canned 'fries" but I'm not sure what the next step was after opening the jar. I did freeze some fries this year and they came out great. I also froze some green tomato pie filling because the tomatoes weren't ripening. I know what you mean about thinking you are done and then something pops up or you see a recipe :)

Sara, I didn't know that you deal with MS, I'm sorry you have to go through that. I would never know with how busy you are. I am keeping you in my prayers for healing and more good days than bad. I am awaiting apples for apple pie filling :) Good to know that the apples can sit overnight :)

Lisa, good to see you :) There is only the two of us and we do gift a bit, look at Julie's post. She is the canning queen :) I wish our tomatoes would have ripened sooner, I have yet to try canning tomatoes. I did freezer Green Tomato Filling and froze some tomatoes. I also make Red Tomato Jam (forgot to mention that above), it's really good and has ginger and red chili flakes in it :) Kerosene Pickles? Hmmmm, intrigued :)

Julie, wow! May I ask how big your family is? Great job!!! Would love to see a pic of your pantry :)

Have a great week ladies! :)

Sara, here is the recipe for "Seasoned Ground Beef".

4 pounds lean ground beef
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups tomato juice
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Brown meat; add onions and garlic and cook slowly until tender. Skim off excess fat if needed. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until very hot. Pack hot into hot jars, leaving 1-inch head space. Adjust caps. Process pints 1 hour and 15 minutes, quarts 1 hour and 30 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure. Yield: about 5 pints

*** Sometimes I just use beef broth or just water. I do some all three ways for a variety.

I, too, can almost all year around. I plant a big garden and also have a variety of fruit trees. I also buy the large box from Misfits Market. If anyone is interested in purchasing from them, I have a code to get money off of first box.

Sharon - It's just me. I have 2 grown children. I sometimes give them some of the canned food if they want any. They usually don't though. My daughter has started canning for her family which is nice to see. Pic of my pantry will come when things quiet down here. I work nights in a furniture factory and right now I am also dog sitting for my aunt.

In the near future, I will list all that I have canned.

Found some red hots, yippee. Going to try a few pints of apple rings. Some recipes call for vinegar some don't. I will try the one in the canning book I guess, and see what happens.
