Another season just about done...

Canning is just about officially done! I feel really good about what I was able to do this summer/fall. The only thing left is cranberries for homemade cranberry sauce.

Top row L-R we have tomatoes, pork, corn, beef stock, tuna, cranberry sauce, peach jelly, peach jam, peaches and blueberries.
Middle row L-R we have black beans, elk, ham, ham stock, green beans, pumpkin, potatoes, apple pie filling, unsweetened applesauce, applesauce and cherries.
Bottom row L-R is pinto beans, white beans, chicken, chicken soup, chicken stock, relish, pickles, beets and pears.
I have venison canned but the jars are put away in a box until the elk is used up.
In the freezer is strawberry jam, peach jam, and clean out the freezer jam (blueberry/peach/strawberry combo) very tasty!

Hey Ellie,
There is never a "true" break in my canning. lol I try and do it all year round. The winter/spring months is generally busy with turkey stock/soup and canning dry beans so they are ready to use. I am not a bean soakin' kind of girl. lol

Isn't it fun to just look at it after you get it all done? We are still putting pears away. Cheers~!

Isn't it nice to just sit and look at all the pretty jars when you get them lined up? We are still putting pears away. ;=]

It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
