[quote:flavapor:MV8xNjEyNjkxXzI2Njc3MTY4XzMxMzNBREU5] [quote:TexasGirl:MV8xNjEyNjkxXzI2NjczMDM2XzI1NUM4OUNC] [quote:tinygreen:MV8xNjEyNjkxXzI2NjcyNTg1X0UxRDZBNDM0] [quote:TexasGirl:MV8xNjEyNjkxXzI2NjcyNDA1XzI4Q0Q0NDBC] I canned over 800 jars this year green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, pinto beans, purple hull peas, peach jelly, plum jelly, pickles, peppers, salsa. It's my third year and I got a new canner that will do 19 quarts at one time, it's such a time saver. I'm glad you started the thread, I love to can. I'm going to go back and read all the posts from the beginning. [/quote] dang!!! 19 quarts!! i want one of those!! right damn now. where did you get that? you are a super canner. i admire that and am working to get to your level. glad you like the thread. :dancingtrio: [/quote] Here's a link, I ordered it from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/All-American-2-Quart-Pressure-Cooker-Canner/dp/B0002808ZM/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1314562180&sr=8-6 If you're going to can a lot, you sure need one. I work my garden mostly by myself and it took me 9 hours to pick my green beans so I sure needed a short cut. This canner doesn't have a rubber seal either so it will NEVER wear out - I sure like that too. Oh, and it almost regulates itself - you put your jiggler on in one of three holes it has and the holes represent 5, 10 or 15 pounds. Once the cooker reaches that pressure it will jiggle more or less depending on how hot it is to keep it at the right pounds of pressure. It's so much more reassuring than having to keep fooling with the heat to keep it at the right pressure. The one thing I will say is this CANNER IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS and the reason I say that is the instructions assume you know a lot already just in the terminology it uses. Like "vent the cooker for five minutes" - my first canner said something like "watch carefully for steam to come out of the top of your canner and once you see a steady stream, set your timer for five minutes" I am a new to canning gal, and I bought this one. It was scary at first, but after a few chats on forums, I am comfortable with it, and I LOVE IT You talked about potatoes, I didn't want to can mine but I had a couple hundred pounds and they were doing fine until it just got so hot here all the time and then some began to rot so I just canned them to keep them from going bad. My onions are holding strong though and I think I'll have enough to last through the winter. [/quote]I am a new to canning gal, and I bought this one. It was scary at first, but after a few chats on forums, I am comfortable with it, and I LOVE IT I am going to attempt to grow potatoes this fall, I am in central Fla. It will be my first attempt, and my garden is ready, the eyes are looking good and almost ready to go in the ground, along with another round of green beans. I have tried to grow onions twice and they start out ok, but they die when the new growth gets to be about 4 inches, what I am doing wrong. I am using the end that would get otherwise thrown out. On another note, if I dehydrate in my oven on "warm" or 200 degrees, would that work? I dont have a dehydrator [/quote]
last year i canned for the first time. wow, i was nervous.
this year, i'm doing better. i have been canning like mad.
if you'd like, tell us your how's and why's. learning to preserve food is one of the most important skills a person can learn.
