89 cents per pound for dried beans versus ??? for canned beans ? your call. Once they are prepared dried beans and canned beans are equal.

Sure, but do you want to have beans in all of your chilli. Why not can the beans and chilli separately and combine them as you like?

Spiced pickeled beets...I buy plained canned beets at .59 a can and when I get several stockpiled I do a batch. 2 and a 1/2 cans will make 2 pint jars. I had 8 pints today. For some reason we don't have the best of luck growing beets ...so I buy and can!french

Went to the farmers market yesterday, came home and made up 8 quarts of tomatoes, 7 quarts of diced apples, and 3 quarts of applesauce.  Need to get more apples for apple pie slices and apple sauce.  The kids ate the homemade applesauce better than the store bought, so why not? LOL 

Does anyone have a recipe for apple peel jelly?  I have two gallon containers in the freezer waiting for me to find a recipe.  Waste not, want not. ;)

cutting up peppers for Wonderful Salsa and the rest will go in tomato sauce. Probably tomorrow. Canning with a toddler is a challenge I hadn't dealt with in a long time LOL.

If common sense were truly common, wouldn't there be more evidence of it?

I did peach butter earlier today.  Now I'm canning peach syrup and sweet potatoes (that I pre-cooked too long, so they will have to be mashed upon opening), and as soon as that's finished, I'm canning up the last of my apple juice.

I pureed the pulp from the peaches I juiced in the steamer, and mixed some with yogurt, saved out enough to make a couple loaves of peach quick bread, and put nine cups in the freezer.

My kitchen's a mess!

I've tried canning peach puree twice, only to find it turns brown after a little while.  I never thought to add lemon juice to it.  Anyway, that's what I made my peach butter from!  No wasting!

Too tired to post last night, but canned 24 quarts of applesauce and 1 quart of pears. Yes, 1 quart. My hands can only peel for so long, so I snuck a jar in with the applesauce. I have more apples to can today... mostly applesauce, but some apple pie filling.

I'll be canning apples today. About 40 lbs we picked on Friday.  May try some spiced apples.  Will do apple butter and juice some in steam juicer.

Joann, could you share your peach quick bread recipe? Is it like banana bread? Sounds yummy!

Remember, if it rains on your picnic it's also raining on your garden!

7 quarts of spaghetti sauce, 14 quarts of grape juice, 9 trays of grapes dehydrating and 25lbs more to process tomorrow. A co-workers brother was giving grapes away, sure glad I over heard and asked for some. 5 gallon bucket of Kraut fermenting. Need to process all my jalapeno peppers not sure if I am going to pickle them or dehydrate. Any suggestions
