10 qts Peaches
17 bags of green beans
4 bags of broccoli
8 bags of squash
6 bags of zucchini/onions/garlic
8 Pints Pickles
I am glad that I decided against the case of tomatoes this weekend, that would have been way too much! I'm pretty excited about getting all that done!
I've never canned before so I decided to start with pickles, Kosher Dill. I used a mix with pickling cucumbers, I need to wait 4-6 weeks before I can open them! I hope they are good, its been like music to my ears hearing the snapping of the cans.
I think I want to do 4-6 more bunches of broccoli and when I do the tomatoes, I will do salsa and tomatoes.
I was going to buy the canning jars at the farmer's market but thought I'd shop around and ended up finding the same wide mouth pints for $4 cheaper at Kroger ($6.99 vs $10.99) so that made me happy! I've got qt jars just need lids. I may go get one more case for homemade applesauce that I do every year.
It makes me happy knowing I am preparing for winter, and also preparing yummy food and a cheaper price that buying it in the winter.
Anyway, that's it from the mom who loves in food!
