Today it was Italian green beans, tomorrow it will be regular ones.

I haven't done any canning this year:( maybe in the Fall I'll can some soup. I even bought a 2nd canner, but have been busy with other projects I haven't had time to even think about it.

Connie I hope you do get to put up some soup for the winter. Canning is time consuming. I had to take last week off from canning so I could clean my house.

I canned 20 qts of tomatoes. Nothing fancy, I just chopped, packed into jars and canned. Didn't remove skins or seeds. Hubs doesn't care, and the skins have more vitamins.
Easy peasy, hope they work OK.
Sara, I need to take a month off of work, canning, AND fermenting to clean my house.
Can you knit a hat out of dog hair??? LOL

Earlier this week, 10 1/2-pts of pickled rosemary beets, and 9 1/2-pts of fire roasted pickled red peppers.

Today it's 2 1/2-pts of salted brown sugar peach jam!

I took my elderly mother to the public library and Marisa McClellan's Preserving by the Pint jumped off the shelf at me, and now I can't stop trying new recipes!!

So fun!

Lisa, did you process your tomatoes in a water bath or with a pressure canner?

Sara, does the book have recipes for other foods besides jams, jellies, tomato sauces, and pickles? I'm interested in small batch canning of meats, soups, stews, meat sauces, etc. My small batch canning book only has jams, jellies, and pickles.

No, Sara, it does not. However, another resource from my own shelf does. It is a Rodale Center book by Carol Hupping called Stocking Up II. It offers instructions for canning all sorts of meats, including small game and edible organs (in case you butchered your own meat.) It only offers recipes for cured meats such as sausage, but it also has instructions for raw-packed meat (!) which I find interesting.

Hope that helps

Does anyone have good recipes for preserving eggplant? I love growing it and today I picked an entire produce case full of them, but truly I don't have a lot of ways to use it. Admittedly I planted too many plants with the idea of sharing with our food closet, and I will, but I'd also like to be able to use it later in the year.

Thanks Sara, I have the first Stocking Up from 1977. I have recipes for canning meats; what I want is recipes for canning recipes made with meat. So far I can pork chop curry, chili, and meat spa sauce.

Sara I love looking up recipes. I found some in four of my preserving books. I have your address. I will mail tomorrow.

Oh you are TOOOO sweet!!!! Thank you!

Yes, I thought that was what you were looking for. Is there any reason why you couldn't can a recipe according to the meat-canning timetables for that same cut of meat? For instance, if you were canning spaghetti sauce with ground beef, you would can it according to the ground beef timetable? I dont know, I have never canned meat!!

Yesterday I did the first of my tomatoes, some sauced and some cut up and canned.
I have to thank Lisa for her inspiration here. The cut up toms were so easy compared to the skinning I used to do, years ago! Thanks for that!!

Sara, I received the recipes! Thank you so much! I'm going to try the beet recipe next time I harvest from my garden. And the cantaloupe jam--wow! How fun! I'll make a point to try that one too!

Sara so glad you like the recipes.

Today I am prepping to can tomorrow and Sat. Wed I bought two 3 1/2# chuck roast. Buy one get one for a penny. Couldn't pass it up. So far I have cut roasts into small chunks and browned in oven. Making broth out of trimming to use in canning. The better cut of meat I will can plain and the other for chili and stew. I still have veg to prep for the stew and to mix seasonings for chili. Will marinate chili meat in seasonings overnight. I like a spicy chili.

I canned 8 quarts of tomato soup. Isn't grand not to skin and squeeze the tomatoes?! I'd never go back. My FIL keeps joking he wants to make an attachment to my cordless drill to hook up to my food mill. I rely on that for everything - apples, peaches, plums....

Katie, great job on the tomato soup. Will be really good with grilled cheese sandwiches. My favorite combo.

As I type I have 4 pints beef stew in pressure canner. A crisp cool morning - perfect for canning in the cottage.

One of my favorite combos as well, Sara. Today I'll be working on peaches. Sticky business, peaches. I won't actually be canning any today. I'll be skinning and quartering, then freezing so that I can use them in 3 pound batches to make jam later on. I just have to make sure they don't go bad in the meantime.
