This gardener's historic moment

Post  llama momma on 9/7/2013, 10:50 am

First I have to say a big thanks to the generosity of Herblover, a forum member who so kindly spent hours in my kitchen teaching the fine art of canning tomatoes from start to pinging of lids.   I am still glowing and beaming with happiness and appreciation.  Happy Birthday too!
 
 
This begins my canning journey.  I am certain that somewhere my ancestors are glowing too!

Looks good LM! That's so nice of Herblover to help you out and get you started on your canning journey. I know you will have fun canning lots of wonderful goodies from your garden.

Those look FANTASTIC LM and then to have personal one on one training to boot. It just can't get any better than that.

Nice job and they look awesome!

Excellent! smiles  Congratulations! Did you water bath or pressure can?

I'm a lazy canner and prefer using the pressure canner so I don't have to sterilize everything first. reading

It was a fun day LM; and I thank you for the compost and yummy honey.  I am glad I was able to share my knowledge and can't wait to see what you can next!  It is a great bug to catch!

Thanks Windsor and hope your canning goes well later this week!
 
CC- pressure canning terrifies me even more than beginning with the water bath method, maybe someday, but for now I'd like to master a few more things with the water method.
 
And Marc it was wonderful to have a mentor in my own kitchen.  I finally found my Ball Blue Book this afternoon and although the directions are right there nothing beats having your questions answered on the spot without second guessing myself.
 
And Herblover/Tammy I do have the bug, because now I want to rewind the season and start over with farmer's market stuff I could have taken advantage of too!  Ahh, at least there is next year -- Wink  Thanks again!

Thanks for reminding me. I haven't received my Ball Blue Book that I ordered. Need to track it down.

very nice...just think canning was a necessity back in the days to keep large farm families fed through the winter...as well as pickling everything from pigs feet, eggs, veggies, kraut, etc.

Herblover,  The book arrived in the mail yesterday, just as DH and I were leaving for Santa Rosa.  We attended the International Heirloom Exposition all day today, so haven't had time to look at it.
