oh, i thought maybe there was something posted somewhere else and i didnt see it.
thank you

here is a question:
sometimes when i am canning tomato sauce, the lids pop in before it goes into the canner.
should i continue to process in teh canner or is it a done deal?

ok, dont even answer that question, i looked it up and found out... that it kills any micro organisms, so processing in the canner is a must. but dont you make tomato sauce by cooking it anyway? it just seems like double work... i dont know, i guess i will just follow the rules.

I would still process as normal, I am very careful to make sure that everything I can, is a safe as can be.

I normally pressure can everything I can.

I don't know if you added any acid to the sauce, but if you don't want to change the flavor with lemon juice or vinegar, you can use a little 'Fruit Fresh' it is mostly Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), and Citric Acid.

You have to use 'Pickling Lime' to make them cruchy.

Just follow the instructions, and you should be ok.

That is a pretty easy recipe Rita. My mil has a ton of mint. May have to try out that one.

Oh darn, forgot to add. In the last 2 days I put up 5 - 1/2 pint jars of blueberry jelly, 5 - 1 pint jars of blackberry jam, and 7 - 1/2 pints of blackberry jelly.

Now the only thing I need to do is clear out space for all of my canned jars to be stored until the holidays when they will become gifts.

A bunch of us got together and canned about 168 cans of peaches. One of the ladies at my church donated her house for the work. Between 7 of us we looked after all the children and got the canning done. It took us almost 12 hours but that's because we didn't have enough kettles to process them in.

We had a great time even though I ended up covered in peach juice and accidently made a joke about my water breaking in front of one of the husbands. He managed his embarassment pretty well considering he was still in his twenties I think.

I now know that canning requires that I wear a full length apron lol.

I'm waiting for another couple to bring me my share of the canning and my kettle back so I can process some peach jam.

I do have one question. Can I use mint flavoring to stretch the amount of mint I can harvest? I'm alittle short of the amount I want to make.
