    Canning, Preserves, Pickles, etc.

    Do any of you do any home canning?

    I just got into it. I spent this past weekend making dilly beans, garden garbage, cherry applesauce and sour cherry jam. This is my first attempt at canning anything, and I'm loving it so far.

    I have never seen dilly beans in a store (can't find them). It has been a few years since I made them...do I ever miss them.

    Our specialty is salsa...we just add stuff, no recipe...

    Let us know how things turn out.

    Happy Canning.

    P.S. are u ever going to marry me?

    My grocery store sells dilly beans but they are about $8 a jar. I made 8 pints of them and I think I'll see how this first small batch goes and then I'll make a big batch. I made one jar with hot peppers in it, because spicy hot dilly beans are the best for stirring a Bloody Mary.

    P.S. Who is "we"? It sounds like you're married already! Did you try the dip?

    Huh. The pickled cabbage/cabbage rolls sound awesome.

    I'm pretty new to this forum. What is this "convention" you speak of?

    I was gonna start a thread on canning and saw this one.

    Monday night I got a hair up my rear to make some veggie soup. I started out with a small 4qt soup pot. As I added stuff it got to the top so I transfered it to my bath canning pot "probably 5 gallons" and when done the pot was close to 1/2 full. I decided to can them and read that you need to use a pressure cooker for low acid foods like tators and beans and not the bath canner. So I borrow moms pressure cooker and canned 7 qts plus a small bowl of soup.

    I enjoyed it so much to see this marvelous method of preserving food without filling up the freezer I'm gonna go on a canning frenzy.

    Two weeks ago I had some friends over for crabs, we ended up eating up my last 6 jars of dillybeans. So last weekend I made another 36 jars, and a few spicy pickles, and garden mix.

    Dilly Beans are pickled green beans, and if you make them like me, spicy as hell!
