So far I've put up dilly beans, kidney beans and today is turkey stock. When I'm done today I will have canned 24 quarts. I still have 3 turkey carcasses to make more stock from.

Nancy, I don't feel up to posting the recipe but if you will PM your address to me, I will be happy to copy it and get it in the mail. I would be happy to do it for anyone else who wants the recipe.

The reason I chose this recipe is because it uses canned tomato sauce and paste instead of fresh tomatoes. I used store bought but if you have home canned sauce or paste that would be great.

Canned 9 half-pint jars of pizza sauce this morning. It took three canning books to get it done. "Not Your Mama's Canning Book" had the recipe I wanted to use but it called for anchovies that I did not want to use. Because of the anchovies the pizza sauce had to be pressured canned. In my Ball Blue Book I found a pizza sauce recipe to be processed in a water bath canner. It called for bottled lemon juice so I bought bottled lemon juice. The recipe did not give processing time or amount of lemon juice for 8oz jars. In Better Homes and Gardens Special Issue Magazine I found a pizza sauce recipe for 8oz jars with processing time of 35 minutes and 1/2 TBSP of bottled lemon juice.

I took a hint from Michelle and wrote all the info in my canning books. Thanks Michelle, next time I do pizza sauce I will have the canning info at my fingertips.

BTW it was the first time I water bath canned in my electric canner and it was so easy.

Canned 7 pints Mayocoba heirloom beans today and they all sealed. It's a Mexican yellow bean, now grown in California, and in the pinto bean family. A good soup bean.

Interesting about those beans. I can the usual beans, black, great northern, kidney, chili, pinto. I think that is all. I did make a black bean and corn salad/dip type recipe that was pretty good. You eat it with chips.

This morning I canned 7 pints of Jaccob's Cattle heirloom beans and happy to say they all sealed. You can read the story of the speckled and solid brown cattle in Genesis 30. The beans have a few of the solid brown ones but mostly they are speckled just like in the Biblical story. The one thing I don't like about the unusually marked heirloom beans is once cooked they lose their colorful marks and Jaccob's Cattle heirloom bean now looks like a red bean, a pretty red bean but no marks.

Thank you so much for the help Sara! I am going to see if I can make that today.

Heather, your beef looks great!

Your jam looks delicious, Krista!

I canned some beef to work on getting the freezer cleaned out.

Krista, I have always made a simple syrup with equal parts sugar and water. For each cup of water add one cup of sugar. The amount of water would depend on the amount of juice from the crushed strawberries. If you don't need to add water, then add the sugar to the strawberry juice. Add the juice of one small to medium lemon. Should be enough sugar to make it shelf stable.

Bring syrup to a boil for 4 minutes; add lemon juice; and follow canning procedure. Can for 10 minutes in a water bath canner.

Krista, I forgot to say the amount of juice or water depends on how thick you want the syrup.

Sara, if you don't mind, can you share with me what I would need to do? Is the syrup of just strawberries, sugar, and water good? Or does it need other stuff to make it shelf stable?

Krista
YellowRose Posted - May 15 2024 : 2:16:33 PM
Krista, your jam is beautiful. Yes, you can can strawberry syrup. The kids would love having it in the pantry.

Last night I made strawberry rhubarb jam! I made some last year, but only put it in the fridge. This year I doubled the recipe and put them into pints (because we eat so much) and canned it.

Since I had some left over strawberries I'm making a simple syrup for strawberry milk. Can this be canned?

Heather I mix the juice with elderberry juice usually. I mix in sugar and we drink it. You don't have to mix it with another juice but we like it that way.

Karen - the violets grow wild in the woods! I'm glad they do :)

Tara - those look delicious! Blueberries are one of my favorites!

Michele - so glad all your juice sealed! Do you just drink it or do you make something with it? I've never done anything with rhubarb before.

Way to CAN Tara!! The jars look lovely. Enjoy the goodness inside. I got the steam juicer pot out yesterday and did up some rhubarb juice. I had a couple bags of rhubarb in the freezer and I picked some new rhubarb. I did get 5 quarts of juice and all sealed.

Heather, a tea made from the flowers makes more sense than using apple juice. Glad you liked the wild violet jelly. I would like to make some but I don't have enough wild violets in my yard to fill a teacup.

I love that you made violet jelly, Heather!! :) Did you grow your violets? :)

Karen :)

It's delicious! I was a bit hesitant to try it - I don't like the perfume taste of flower teas so I didn't think I'd like it. It actually tastes like a berry jelly.

No apple juice, the recipe I use makes a tea with the flowers over night then you use the tea to make jelly the next day.

Heather I haven't made wild violet jelly but have made mint jelly and cactus blossom jelly, both called for apple juice. Did you use apple juice?
