How I Spent My Day

Lots of green beans means preserving in our house. I got out the pressure canner my Grandma had given me, got everything rolling, only to find out the gauge was broken. So quickly, I made one recipe's worth of Spicy Pickled Beans (which, if we like, you will see here later. Because it is technically a pickle, I can just hot water bath it) and froze the rest. Most of the fam likes their beans cooked with massive amounts of bacon, butter, salt, garlic and onion, so canning is the way to go. Thinking after the cost of the parts I need for the canner, I am most likely going to end up just buying a new (also more modern) one.

  1. I just purchased my first canner from Amazon. They have some good sales right now and offer free shipping.


I welcome hospitable, intelligent discussion. I do not welcome mean-spirited comments. Though they are "moderated" I post pretty much everything, with a very, very small exception-that being spam and those who aim to hurts others intentionally. I'd love hear what you have to say, otherwise!
