I'm getting ready to can later this week. Today I bought beets and ginger for pickled beets - red, gold, yellow bell peppers and jalapeno peppers for jalapeno pepper jelly.

Will gather together all jars & lids to have ready and set-up the Yellow Rose Cottage.

Tomorrow I will roast, peel, and slice the beets. Wash and prepare peppers. Measure all ingredients.

Hopefully Friday will be canning day. That's how I can - one day at a time.

Today I measured ingredients for pickle beets and jalapeno jelly. To keep it all straight I copied the ingredients page for each recipe and put papers at opposite ends of the table. I did one recipe at a time and put the ingredients on top of the paper. I used assorted sizes of jars and zip lock bags. In the morning I just have to gather up the ingredients for first recipe and take to Yellow Rose cottage. When I am ready for the second recipe I will take ingredients to cottage.

The beets and peppers are prepared and in the fridge.

I haven't done much canning this year, I've been so busy with projects that never seem to end. I will be putting up several cases of turkey soup shortly, yum. Just bought a 2nd canner. Excited to use it. I have an all american which i love, but bought a presto because it seems like a good canner as well. Sara I never had pickled beets, but am curious to try them.

Connie I've eaten pickled beets all my life but this is the first time for me to can them. The recipe is in the America's Test Kitchen DIY cookbook. It called for roasting the beets instead of cooking on top of stove. I'm anxious to see how they turn out.

Your turkey soup soups yummy.

My sister canned potatoes this week in chicken broth with onions. She'll use them for potato soup and cream potatoes.

My day of canning was successful. The jalapeno pepper jelly set up and the pickled beets are beautiful. All lids sealed which is a very good thing.

Roasting organic carrots to pickle and can tomorrow. I'm using the same recipe as for pickled beets. I will use apple cider vinegar instead of the white wine vinegar called for. I like the taste of apple cider vinegar with carrots.

Just finished up canning two dozen jars of chicken and ten jars of corned beef... God willing, that's all for this year! If not, that's great, too! As soon as I put the canner away, it seems, I start missing it, and try to find a reason to use it! :)

Sara - That's so funny! I had almost forgotten! One of my all-time favorite after school snacks when I was a kid was carrots - fresh OR canned - doused in cider vinegar. I'd eat it like soupy salad, and drink up all the remaining vinegar from the bowl. Couldn't get enough! :) My parents thought I was nuts! LOL!

Happy Canning!

It always fun seeing all the wide variety of canning projects, great reminder of food overlooked and trying new recipes. I am getting ready to can some Christmas Jam (Strawberry Cranberry Jam) and Jalapeno Pepper Jam for Christmas gifts.

Nina, I'm always looking for something new to can so I know what you mean about missing it. Your jars of chicken and corned beef will come in handy for quick & tasty suppers.

Jana your jams will make wonderful gifts.

It's raining tonight but should clear off in the morning so hopefully I will be canning in the Yellow Rose Cottage. Everything is set up out there and ingredients are ready to go.

Jana, my Yellow Rose Cottage was the previous owner's woodworking shop. It's next to the back deck so handy to kitchen door. I like naming things so hence the name. I have a glass top stove so I can't can on it. I bought a hot plate and electric canner and set up a canning station on one of the work counters in the cottage. There's a wooden work table in middle of room so I have plenty of work area.

I also use the cottage for crafts, bread machine, drying herbs, and piddling. One of these days I hope to get curtains on the windows and pretty it up. For now it is a little on the rustic side - okay it's a whole lot on the rustic side but I do love working in it.

Just bought the jars in from the cottage. All sealed. Yield 4 pints. It's 46 today so chilly in the cottage. The heat part of the fan no longer works. I guess that is why the previous owner left it. I won't be able to do anymore canning until spring unless I buy a electric heater. Will have to think on that. I would have to work enough in the cottage during the cold months to justified the expense.

Canning is like gardening - when I can't do either I can look through canning/gardening books and dream about what I will do next year.

Shannon, homemade broth is so good - it'll come in handy for so many recipes.

Diana, do you press your own cider? Wow I know where I'd like to pop in for a quick drink!
Shannon, I am canning turkey broth too. I give it to my 86 YO mom. She puts it in the fridge and sips it COLD all day long. Sounds horrible to me, but she LOVES it. And I figure it has some good benefits for her body, so here I am, buying more turkey and chicken than I normally would, to keep my mom "in stock".
I bought some Idared apples on sale for 99 cents for a 3 lb bag. I put them in the crock pot, with the peel(minus core & seeds). After about 5 hrs, I put the whole shebang in the Vitamix. It is delicious, and turned the prettiest pink color. Canning that today.

Lisa I like cold beef broth but not so much fowl. You must have a whole folder of recipes for chicken and turkey.

Well, the pumpkins are finally almost ripened! Over the next couple of days, I'll be canning some and dehydrating some. I'm so happy! I think I have enough to keep us going for a couple of years! LOL! (Not really - not in THIS household!) I have been going through canning withdrawals, so I am really excited to get started again! YAY! Hugs - Nini
