Episodic canning

Well, it’s harvest time at the old farmstead. And while it’s not exactly wheelbarrows full, it’s more than I can eat, so I am canning. Unfortunately canning has to be done in batches since everything ripens in turns which is probably good if you have 3 acres of tomatoes. For me it means a few weekends of putzy canning. 

I like small cans (jars actually) since I don’t use large amounts usually and I can open 2 or 3 jars if I need more but if I open one big one and then don’t use it lickety split, it will mold. No preservatives and all.

  1. Cher Michael, good luck with that "jarring", hope it does indeed preserve your produce. You are always my idol…. Jean
