Who all cans vegitables?
I think I'm about done for the year... Just finished off 2 batches of salsa (a batch is 7 quarts). That makes 28 qts I've put up of salsa this year. Also have 28 qts of dill pickles. I've got 14 qts of canned corn, 14 qts of green beans, and 20 pints of canned diced tomatoes. This is in addition to somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 dozen quart bags of frozen green beans, a dozen or more bags of frozen corn, maybe half a dozen bags of frozen brocolli, and a bag or 2 of brussel sprouts.
I really got in to the canning this year. I kind of had to because we ran out of freezer room at our house. I've also got a side of beef in our chest freezer along with all the other stuff that gets tossed in as time goes on too. I do think though, after I spent the money to buy a good canner and A LOT of brand new jars that in the future I'm not going to mess around with freezing anything. Canning it takes a little longer but it will last far longer in a jar than it will in the freezer. You also don't have to worry about using it up out of the freezer within 6-8 months, and it takes no electricity to store jars. We had a lot of vegitibles this year. Was just curious who all stocks up out of the garden around here besides me?
