I keep telling myself I'm done canning for the winter. But then the co-op tempts me with such things as fresh green beans and pickling cucumbers!
I caved and bought a thirty pound case of green beans this week and my great friend Anne and I put them by this weekend.
Anne also purchased thirty pounds and so between the sixty pounds of green beans, we canned thirty-two quarts, and blanched/froze (six) one pound bags.
Here are about thirty pounds.
Anne chose the method of snapping the ends off the beans. I chose to cut em off.
I'm still not sure which way was quicker. I think it's about the same, just preference.
We did have a little help in the beginning.
Until they figured out how much work it was!
Here is some of the finished product.
We sampled a jar and YUMM! They were so good, we ate the whole thing!
It sure helps to have a friend in the kitchen with you while canning, but it is still an all day process!
I need to get out of the kitchen and into the craft room! Christmas is only a month and a half away!
I kinda hope they don't have those pickling cucumbers next week. I'm not sure I can pass them up, even though I should!
