We'll not really in a can, but that is about how I feel since doing some of my canning this week. We really started Monday night. We usually have a large garden and put up most of our own veggies, but this year since we are renting and trying to move to North Carolina we decided not to. My WONDERFUL brother & sis-in-law gave us some beans, so Monday night we started washing and snapping them. Tuesday morning I headed to Wally World as hubby said go and buy you a nice Pressure Canner (said it will be very used with this family), so off I went and got back to spend all day Tuesday canning beans. Bright and early Wednesday morning we started blackberry jam (we have an abundance here at this house), then we started our applesauce and apple butter. This morning we finished off with another batch of blackberry jam, and some corn. Tomorrow I will be picking up some peaches at the farmers market and making peach jam, and we might do some more applesauce as the children loved it! I have to give a big thank you to my youngins they were such a great help to me!! It usually takes me alot longer but now that they are older they can help alot. We did the math and we have done the following.
1. Green Beans 42 Pints
2. Applesauce 20 Pints
3. Apple Butter 8 1/2Pints, 6 4oz Jars
4. Blackberry Jam 18 1/2Pints, 22 4oz Jars
5. Corn 12 Quart size freezer bags
