Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
I picked the blueberries, raspberries and blackberries that grew wild here. The strawberries were given to me by my neighbors. My neighbors also gave me onions and potatoes, beets will be harvested soon. I plan on making some potato soup and beet soup as well as pickled beets. I was thinking about canning some cheesy potatoes :)

The prickly pears I saw in a friends pictures she posted and asked her for some. She said she did not know what they were and they grow wild in Texas.
 Quoting: ADC


cheezy potatoes would be awesome! let me know if it works. i may try to can bacon for real.

it's great to have neighbors with gardens themselves. sharing is good. ohyeah

we'll be getting more tomatoes from one of ours. i've still got corn, beets, cabbage, potatoes, lima beans, baby lima beans. there might be more but i'm so tired right now, i can't remember.

i love pickled beets. my mom has the best receipt.

it's so great to be able to go outside and pick fruit and use it. i have trees growing right now, some had small fruit this year. maybe by next year i'll have a crop.

:hercoffee:
 Quoting: tinygreen


I will let you know :) I will let you know how the soups turn out too..I will make vegetable soup too:)

It would be nice if more people worked together.

Please see if your mom would mind if you posted her beet recipe and the fridge pickles. I have never made pickles in the fridge and would love a good recipe to try :)

i have canned swiss chard. haven't tried broccoli yet though. americans eat quite a lot of broccoli.

here's how to can broccoli

[link to www.goodcanning.com]

Plain ol' Broccoli

Cut broccoli into pieces. Cover with water and boil for 3 minutes. Put broccoli in jars, cover with boiling water leaving 1 inch headroom.

Process for 35 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure when at 1000 feet, 15 pounds of pressure over 1000 feet.

It's very simple, you just open the bag and spread it out over the dehydrating tray. It s already blanched, so there is no work involved. There are plenty of vids on youtube.

198 jars and counting, lol

This weekend, the big jelly and jam jam....about three gallons of rhubarb, two of blackberry, and about four gallons of raspberries to process. Plus, about 40 pounds of salmon, plain versus smoked.

Will have more green beans to do shortly, plus zucchini relish, and then there are the spuds.......

I'd say I was right on target for my usual 500 jars ;)

yeah, the biggest draw for me on canning, is being able to keep food if the grid was to go down.

i went through hurricaine ike and we didn't have power for 12 days. it was awful. i was the only person on the entire block who had a gas stove. i cooked for many people. then all our stuff went bad. it was awful.

i learned the hard way. now i'm taking advantage of the fact that i have all the canning stuff and the produce for the most part. i'm going to start canning all year around.

Good advice as Irene is coming. I wanted to do some canning but a fucking woodchuck destroyed our whole garden. I might can him just yet.

blueberries are very good for health. don't tell the fda though. they might go the way of elderberries, walnut and all foods good for humans.

good memories keep us going. i still have multicolored finger nails right now.

we are getting ready to do tomatoes next week. we may do a small batch today. then i'll be making tomato sauce with and without meat. that was a recommendation from another poster. it will taste great!

because my parents were sick a great deal last winter we still have some tomatoes. but i feel you can almost never have enough canned foods. flower
