Learn to Can (BBB)

Jan

IMG_0758
I didn’t grow up around home canning. I viewed the entire process as somewhat mysterious up until a few years ago when I moved to the country. I never even thought about canning when I lived in the suburbs-–even though I kept a vegetable garden. I didn’t know how to can and I was slightly afraid of it, to be honest. But I like to try new things and I was eager to learn when Yoda presented herself. Georgia taught me to can during the two and a half years I lived in the old farmhouse. She had a cellarful of tomatoes, relishes, jams, jellies, butters, green beans, and more. She kept all her canning in the old cellar in the farmhouse and I enjoyed “shopping” there the first (excruciatingly cold) winter I lived there. By spring, I was helping her plant her garden and by summer she was teaching me how to make jams and butters and put up green beans and tomatoes. She also made me hoe, but let’s not go there. The hours I spent learning to can with Georgia will always be some of my best memories of living in the old farmhouse.

    Second me for the baby goat video (ew and awww at the same time!). I love canning now but it did scare me at first. After my first batch though, I was hooked. I wish we could have a cellar to put our canned goods in! BBB

    I’d be lumped in with the ones who’re scared. I actually grew up with canning, but I was too busy being a tom boy, and I didn’t want anything to do with kitchen work, but now I would love to go back to those days and listen and watch and learn all I could. Now, at 40 years old, it’s time to figure it out myself. Even going to start a little raised garden this year. Anyway, I’d love the BBB book :)

    Hubby and I have begun our quest towards more sustainable living. I am working on my home goods stockpile. We are currently perusing heirloom seed catalogs and have made arrangements to “lease” a parcel of land from our neighbor to grow our vegetables. He agreed to allow this for payment in the form of vegetables as his wife is a vegetarian. BBB me baby!

    I love canning, I grew up with it and never thought I would like doing it myself because using Mom’s old pressure canner was scary to me. She always stressed how we had to keep an eye on the gage, and make sure it didn’t get to high. I purchased a canner several years ago, but sure wasn’t looking forward to using it, because of having to watch it so closely along with worries about it getting away from me and exploding.

    The thing is, I got one of those that doesn’t take a gasket, it has things that screw the lid on. It’s also got a weight that you put on the vent, depending on how many pounds pressure you want, depends on what side of the weight you put down. I didn’t realize that the kind I got would be SO much nicer to use than the old kind my Mom had! I don’t have to sit in front of it watching it, I just have to listen to the sound, and turn it up or down, depending on how it sounds. It’s so much easier to use, and safer that I now LOVE to can! :)

    I’m the winner of the last book, and have to thank you again for it, it’s got some interesting looking recipes in it. I’m really looking forward to next canning season!!! :)

    I used to can at home with water-bath. My mom had peach and plum trees that always yielded some fruit, so I would do jams and jellies. I was the only one in my family that was interested in it though, my mom and grandma felt the had done their time. My sister, at the time was career girl and thought I was just plain silly. “Buy it in the store, it’s easier.”

    Now, I live in town with no garden and have to buy anything I want to can but my sister and her husband have an acre or more of land and a huge garden. They can everything they can get their hands on. He even makes a canned fresh tomato soup that his grandchildren beg for when they come to visit. He gave me a can of it that I am hoarding.

    I still do some water-bath canning occasionally but got so excited about all of the canned goods recipes around here that I went out and bought a pressure canner but now I’m afraid to use it. My sister and her husband live too far away for me to go there for lessons everyday. I would love a BBB to guide me through.

    I’ve been canning for years and years, but not as much these past few years. I don’t like buying fruits and vegetables to can, I’d rather grow my own, as it’s much cheaper. I no longer have my farm, so my gardens are small in comparison to when I canned all my own food. I love looking at the jars of pickles and tomatoes all lined in a row on the shelves in the basement. My favorite thing to can? Pickles. Love making pickles. And when I lived on a farm I had wild cherries and blackberries for making lots of jams. The country life is the best. Thank you Alton, for sponsoring this Blue Book giveaway in honor of your mother and grandmother. that’s very sweet. BBB!

    Canning was something my GGMothers did…Grandmother and Mom seemed to have missed the canning genes! I didn’t start canning until my kids were nearly grown. Now there are only 2 of us, but I still can what we grow. I dehydrate and freeze some foods. I would love *LOVE* to have an updated copy of the BBB.

    I want to get started with canning. I didn’t grow up doing it, though I have made grape jelly. Something about the whole thing terrifies me that I’ll kill us all with botulism. I’d love learn get the latest addition of BBB.

    I bought the seeds for the garden, dug everything up and added the horses contribution. I better learn what to do with the resulting produce, don’t you think?

    I used to help my Grandma get stuff ready to can and did a bit of it myself but it’s been years. I’m thinking about revisiting canning this summer. There never seems to be enough freezer space….

    Dear Suzanne….Yes, put me down to win the Blue Ball Book of Canning…my grandmother used to have cans of stuff underneath her house in the cellar back in Illinois in the 60’s…but by the time she died (Grandmother Cohn RIP) in the early 70’s, when my parent’s bought the house, they were still there since the 60’s…of course, I knew not to eat those things…in fact….they should have been disposed of….but…it was always a reminder to me of my grandmother’s golden days of canning three greenbeans salad and tomatoes…and I always wanted to learn how…but, was afraid to ask…and now…my heart is aching that I don’t know how to make my own canned goods…ps….Love the Nutmeg Story.

    This year I canned bwb tomatoes for the first time. Just large chunks of tomato in a touch of salt and lemon juice. They’re great for chili or tomato soup or pasta sauce… because not much has been done to them. I’m thinking I need to learn how to can more this fall. I was scared before, but it wasn’t so bad.

    I learned how to can here on the farm. Home canned tomatoes taste so much better than store bought. And peaches – yum!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
