Love to hear of all the canning----tomatoes and more tomatoes for me. Life do get tedious! Can't wait until frost and some me time.

Peach jam & peach rum sauce this weekend. I think the peach rum sauce will have to go in the fridge. Recipe called for lemon zest. I used lemon juice instead. Not sure how I missed that I needed to buy a lemon.

We butchered a beef over the weekend so I have been busy canning beef and bone broth. So handy to have on my pantry shelves. Today I am canning a pressure canner load of ground beef and a load or two of chunked beef. So handy to have on hand for quick meals.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

I surely wish we would get a lot of rain Treelady. We haven't had any moisture for ages and every thing is bone dry.

This morning I canned 4 pints dried black-eyed peas. Black-eyed peas have never been a favorite of mine until I had them at a local cafe. They were so good. At Christmas my niece gifted me a garden tote bag filled with dried beans and a 2# pkg of black-eyed peas. Still have plenty of black-eyed peas for many more pints. Will work them in between my other canning.

I have never canned dried food - do you do it the same as "wet" food? I don't think I've ever had black eyed peas either LOL! I think I'll have to see if I can find some and try them the next time I'm at the store.

Heather, canning dried beans cuts out the soaking overnight and cooking for 30 min. If you like I will send you the recipe. Just PM me with your home address. BTY I'm sorry I missed your post before this morning.

Black-eyed peas are better known in the south and Texas. I hear that "up-north" they call them cowpeas and feed them to their stock. We eat them on New Years for good luck.

Yesterday I put up 4 pints of dried red beans. They are so pretty in mason jars.

Julie, great job putting up 20 pints of ham & potato soup. It'll make a great quick lunch or supper.

Canning meals is such a good thing Julie. I hope to do more of that. I canned rhubarb juice the other day.
We like to mix that with elderberry in the winter.

Over the weekend I canned 11 pints of spaghetti sauce and 4 pints + 7 quarts of crushed tomatoes. Both recipes are from the USDA book. The crushed tomatoes have too much juice, the last jar hardly had any solids so next time I will try the whole or halved tomatoes instead.
I was feeling pretty good about getting so much done. Then I read on FB that someone canned 157 quarts of spaghetti sauce with help from their family in one day. How on earth do you get that much done in one day? I need some tips! On Saturday I picked up a bushel of tomatoes and made the spaghetti sauce. On Sunday I canned the crushed tomatoes with rest of that bushel. My feet hurt, my back hurt and I broke a nail (haha). How much do you can in a day or weekend?

Love the canning news---I have me 21 pints of pizza sauce---20 pints of pickle relish--ten quarts of kraut---40 pints of salsa--also I have frozen beans and corn. Life do get tedious---also gathering wood---my old bones do ache---keep on canning ladies. always read the canning news. I have learned to can in stages---prep my tomatoes and things before and get up and be ready to start. I hate to can---but love to see it in the can. YEE_HAW! If someone canned 157 quarts of spaghetti sauce in one day---they were probably on Chrystal meth---LOL!

Crazy that many jars in one day. Must have multiple canners and propane burners. I have the last batch of grapes picked now. Will run them in the steam juicer. I made two batches of jam last week. Picked my first batch of elderberries. Got corn to get picked and freeze too. The harvest is on, and not enough time.

Barbara that is a lot of canning! I need to figure out how to prep so my feet don't hurt so bad at the end of the day. Agree, chrystal meth LOL
Michele - okay, maybe that is how they did it ;) I love my steam juicer! Elderberries are ripe here too. Not enough to do much this year.

How I miss canning. Haven't done any in a while but I intend to. 157 cans in one day is crazy! We've had watering issues really since we moved in, and just had a new well put in days ago, so our harvest is not as we wanted. Andrea I bet all of those jars look so pretty with the sauce! Michele I wish I could make jam. I planted a grape vine last year, and we have several bunches to be ripe soon but not enough for jam.

The recipe is in the ball canning book for grape jam. You can do any size batch. Pop the pulp and seeds out in one pan, the grape skins go in another. Put a little water in with the skins and simmer for 15 min. I have both simmering for the same time. Put the pulp though a strainer in with the skins, using a spoon to get out all the pulp. Toss the seeds. Then I add sugar to taste while boiling. Cook till it sheets of the spoon and put in jars.

Hey ladies! I jumped on to ask for a recipe but things look pretty quiet in the kitchen since the start of September. I hope everyone is OK?

I picked 20 pounds of Anaheim type peppers from my garden and want to make a green sauce to can up for Chile verde. Does anyone have a recipe like that? I buy a green sauce from Costco which is delicious (but expensive) and the only ingredients in it are green peppers, garlic and salt. Seems like I should be able to do that, but how do I know the processing time to be sure it’s safe?

I love reading what everyone is canning!

I have a chili verde sauce recipe but it's mild and uses mostly tomatillos and onions with a touch of lime. It's great for shrimp or crab enchiladas or enchilada suiza.

No recipe here either. I did do salsa verde with tomatillos also. basicly I put the peppers, tomatillos, onion and garlic and roasted it in the oven. Then they went in the blender, adding spices and lime juice. Then I canned them. I do find alot of recipes on pinterest. We use the currant kitchen creations topic quite a bit for all things cooking, canning and what ever else. One gal wanted one topic to try to look back to find a recipe. It was hard to find otherwise. I know when processing, you use the time for the ingredient with the longest processing time.
