CANNING


I canned these today.....I got 8 pints & 1 half pint........I cut them into chunks and then put them in my little hand crank shredder....put them in a pot and heated them through......(looked and looked for my little weight that goes on my pressure canner....I can never find it when I need it).....anyway after I found it I pressured them on 5 pounds of pressure like the book said for 15 minutes......and now we are getting a summer storm.....rain, thunder..the whole 9 yards......
we really need the rain...and I have a chicken in the pot......stewing slowly.....I am going to fix chicken and rice and some chicken salad......
2 TIMOTHY 2; 15
Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

It sounds like you had another productive day. Those jars of tomatoes look so pretty! That chicken sounds yummy, too.

Glad you got some rain! I need to can, but haven't gotten in the mood. Hopefully, by the time the cucumbers show out - I will have gotten in the mood to make pickles!

I love canning! I've been busy with that too...lots of pickles and green beans! Our tomatoes are just starting to come in!
