well one of them anyway. I am still afraid of squirrels and horror movies, but I am no longer afraid of water bath canning. YAY ME!
My mother has been telling me for years that it is easy and nothing to be scared of, but sometimes a girl has to learn these things on her own. Plus, if you read all the canning web sites it is botulism this and death that.
Anyway, I bought the big granite wear canner and have canned strawberry jam, apple perpper jelly, tomato puree, raspberry vanilla jam, and kosher pickles.
I don't have pictures of them all, but here is the strawberry jam
and the tomatoes and pickles
Of all the things I have canned, I have had everything seal except one jar of pickles. Which I stuck in the fridge to mature.
