Canned 7 pints black-eyed peas with one fresh bay leaf and one sage leaf in each jar. I like black-eyed peas, but they do take a lot of seasoning to taste good. Gotta have my black-eyed peas for New Year Day. BTW two did not seal so I will freeze them.

Always good to have a back up plan Sara! lol I canned 6 pints of carrots and one of those did not seal. I need to get that in a freezer bag as well.

Canned 7 pints chicken broth today and one did not seal. May add it to the almost qt of broth left over to make potato soup, one of my favorite soups.

Sara, if I may ask what brand of electric canner do you have or model number would be good. I would never just go buy one without a recommendation or something because I don't know enough about them. I use to have one my mom gave me but it is long gone. It wasn't electric though and it made me nervous to use it.
I do miss canning things and I have the storage space for it now.

Denise, it's a Presto Digital Pressure Canner. Here's the Amazon link to where I got it. It was a gift from my sister.

I normally don't have. issues with jam or jelly getting firm. I tried a recipe that mimics the Bon Mama Pumpkin spice jam. I didn't use any tapioca as they did.l I have sauce. Really thinking of opening the 6 jars into a pot and adding tapioca. Just never added it to a jam.
Has anyone used tapioca in canning?

Sylvia I haven't used tapioca in canning, but it is a thickener and almost tasteless. If you have Clear Jell or Sure Jell you may want to try one of them. By looking at other jam recipes you should be able to find the right amount to use.

Sara, I had already used 6 tablespoons of pectin as in the recipe. Maybe instead of Clear Gel, they opted for tapioca. It's tempting to try it.

Made Elderberry Jelly and Beautyberry Jelly yesterday. We planted the Elderberry last year and this is the first attempt at the jelly.

I got inspired and made some jams yesterday. Strawberry, blackberry, and raspberry, all out of the freezer. 12 jelly jars all sealed. Today I might do some rhubarb, since all my stuff is out. Next up will be some beef stock. Keeping the jars filled and working on making space in the freezer, lol.

Good job on making your jams, Michelle, nice variety. I could use another batch of beef broth, but I will have to be a little stronger before I start canning again.

The last time that I was up with my kids in Spokane, we canned grape juice. We had a great time picking, sorting, juicing, and canning! We put up 32 quarts of beautiful purple juice! My Daughter-in-law learned how to can the juice from her 99 year old neighbor who has been canning since she was a child!

Thats alot of grape juice Nancy. But what a day you had with family, fun. Sara I hope your feeling better.
I canned 13 more jelly jars of jam. Another batch of strawberry, and one of rhubarb. Set for a long time on jam now. Yup all jars sealed.

It was alot of grape juice, Michelle! Seven people living in their house right now. But, it was great fun and such a pleasure to save those grapes for future days! Looks like you are super busy, too! Lots of yummy jelly!
Have a great time everyone. Such at great reward at the end of the day!

Got three quarts of beef stock canned yesterday. I dug in the freezer yesterday morning, and only found 3 pkgs of soup bones. So I went with that. The other three are in there somewhere. All sealed. lol

My youngest son brought over his soup bones. Got 6.5 quarts from his, and took out two containers of chicken stock I had in the freezer and canned those to help fill the canner on the second batch. All sealed. It sure is a good day when all jars seal.
I will give a few jars back to Tyler and his wife to try and see if they will use them. They have only canned peaches and pears so far, so hoping to get them started in canning a few things.

Yesterday I canned chili beans. I got 9 quarts, but one did not seal. That should keep me stocked up for a little while. It is nice to get different things done in the kitchen, before the outside work starts.

Michelle, Good job on the chili beans. One of these days we will find out why that one jar didn't seal, until then we will keep on canning and hoping for all to seal.

I need to get the canner back out soon. I have some bones and beef to make some broth and canned beef that - like Michele said - need to get done before outside work really kicks in.
