    Grape jelly is done. The Mrs. is making tomato sauce in the back. Hoping for 6 quarts at least. The house smells great today. I have to check my crabapple source soon. 20170903_110832.jpg

    Next weekend will be more grape jelly, tomato jam and maybe some ketchup. Stews will be a few weeks out.

    I made a few jars of half sour garlic spear pickles and processed them in the canner. They all sealed fine, but after a few days the lids released. I'm wondering if they started to ferment and popped the seal?
    First time canning pickles, so I must have done something wrong.


    I made more Maine blueberry jam last night.

    Jon, could one can a chili (already made recipe) too? I've never seen it, maybe beans get mushy or something else?

    If it is like tomato meat sauce, sure, but it would need a pressure canner if there is meat in it. It should not get too mushy. My wife's tomato sauce is fine after a few months.

    She'd probably need to run it about 13 or 14 PSI based on her elevation too.

    0913171745.jpg 0913171746 (1).jpg Okay, now is my chance to brag a little, after being envious of all you guys with 25 cords, woodworking skills, etc. Some is last year i.e. venison and dill pickles:
    Green beans , tomatoes, tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, tomato juice, beets, pickled beets, corn, peaches and peach salsa.

    You sure have earned the right to brag Firebroad ! That is very impressive. Do you any jars enter in the fair?
