Saturday Whaler and I picked 15 dozen corn, I spent the last two days freezing it. That's a lot of work for as much corn as you could buy already packaged for $20. And the garden peas. You spend a good hour picking and shelling enough for dinner for as many peas as you could buy for $1. Tomatoes too. I spent a half day canning tomatoes, ended up with 8 jars. gaah.gif $39 for the plants for 8 frickin jars of tomatoes. This suzy homemaker shït is over rated.

Hi Shadow, could I bother you for a tried and true canning/preserving recipe, because from what I've been reading there are quite a few recipes out there, but the key is finding the right one.

And, yes, some suzy homemaker tasks take away from living a more adventurous and intellgecutal life, but the reason I am considering starting to learn how to preserve food, was when one canning lady said that there is nothing better than in February, when the cold snow and ice is blasting at a 45 degree angle - it is wonderful to open up a jar of sunshine; she meant peaches.

Hej US, sure, what do you want to can? The main 'secret' is to put ice on whatever you're canning before stuffing the jars. Pickles, fruit, veggies, all sit in a ice cube bath while I sterilize the jars.

Why is that? I did read that canning recipes differ depending on what you intend to preserve. Does this have to do with compensating for the heat expansion within the jars? I think I would like to start with something easy like fruit, perhaps strawberries. Sorry Shadow, have to run now, but will continue this conversation later.

No, chilling with ice keeps fruits and veggies from being soggy. Veggies crunchy and fruit crisp. Pickles would be easiest to start with, jam is great but pectin can be picky. Raspberries have their own natural pectin so if you want to start with jam, they would be best.

So it's for stopping the cooking process, just like you would noodles or boiled eggs, right?

I truly don't know, that could be it, definitely makes sense. But I do know pickles are crunchy and fruit crisp if it's very cold going into the canning jars. Brines are a matter of trial and error, but ice cold always makes a difference.

I have made jam before, but I'm not into canning. I like to keep everything frozen as it preserves all nutrients, but of course we won't have that luxury during the zombie apocalypse 13.gifzombie.gif

I did make Gravlax, salt cured salmon, the other day and it was incredibly delicious. yay.gif
