Todays canning adventures
« on: August 09, 2020, 07:01:12 PM »
So todays canning adventures resulted in

8 green beans (plants were finally done)

12 cans of corn

15 cans of carrots (1 busted in the canner)

15 qts (approximately) of salsa started.  Now i just have to find more jars.  And thankfully jon got me hooked up with a link to where i was able to order enough lids to last me a while.

Nate, I just sent around 50 wide mouth quart jars home with our son. Didn’t know there was a shortage. Oh well didn’t have to move them to Shelton

So i got 14 pts of salsa in this first of many go-rounds with the 6 massive tomato plants down in the garden.

Everything (tomato's, onions, Jalapeños and green bell peppers) except the dry spices and the lemon juice came from our garden.

This batch was mild, the next batch will be man strength!

Charles and (possibly....even though its a long shot) ken might be able to handle the next ones.

Lol. I can handle hot but once you get to ghost pepper the flavor is so bitter I don’t like it.  Serrano and habanero and evening some Thai chili’s are good and not bitter.

Nate, you should pickle some green beans! Those and asparagus pickled are the best! Also, I would like a jar of your hot salsa! We have home made habanero paste in the fridge we like to use in food.

Well the asparagus wont be ready until next year maybe 2.  I dont eat enough of the pickled green beans or asparagus to make the trouble of pickling them worth while.

So todays activity was 15qts of sauce!

I decided to try tattler reusable lids. I ordered off Amazon but they are cheaper straight from their site. But you need pay pal.
I think I like them so far. They add an extra step. You have to simmer the lids before use. And you leave the bands pretty loose. I only used 3 because it's my first run. They all sealed. Some people on the internet say they only got a 50% success rate. Others report a 95% success rate. Supposedly the secret is In how tight you make the band. When you put the band on you don't hold the jar. Spin the band on just until the jar starts to turn. That's it no tighter. Tighten the bands after removing from the canner and let cool. You can tell if it sealed by picking up the jar by the lid. They do suck in just a little bit but they do not ping like metal lids.

So today i cubed up probably 10+ lbs of arm roast and did up the remainder of my enchilada sauce from the other day.

I will say that those tattler lids are pretty dang good!
