I did something ...I flushed about 5 gallons of cucumber relish down the toilet..Yes, you read that right..I flushed the stuff. It made me sick to do it..and it was a waste of alot of good food..but I totally messed up. I was trying to 10x's a recipe ..I over did in the salt dept. I either let it set too long in the brine..or miscalculated my numbers..anyway the huge pot tasted like salt. Nothing I could do but throw it away. Now to never make more than two batches at one time,of any recipe again. Never!!! I think I am starting to see canning jars in my dreams..I need released from this calling..my DH keeps picking and I keep canning. I am going to get wise this afternoon..all the stuff he has picked today..i have no room for it in the freezer and the refrig is packed..There is just us at home..kids live long ways away..I am going to pack up the car and deliver to needy families..if that doesn't work..I'll deliver to non needy families...after my bike ride to the Exhibit hall...Enough is enough !!!
