Apple Juice-Canned

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Well I did finish canning 6 bushels of apple into apple juice. That made 12 gallons and used up the last of my canning jars. All natural/unflitered with no sugar added. It took ten hours and the last 6 hours my husbanded helped or I'd still be there. I am glad to decare canning season over with.
We woke up to an inch of snow this morning. I have some kale out in the garden that will give us a nice salad tonight. It is amazing how kale survives this cold and tastes sweeter.
I pulled up the carrots yesterday. I'll post a picture of a huge two legged one this afternoon. It made me laugh.
I hope you all have a magical day.

    Sounds like you had a busy day. Great job on the canning. I used to can a lot with my mother while I was growing up. I still miss the veggies in the winter sometimes. I don't miss the hard work the garden and canning itself was. emoticon Lynel

    What a great accomplishment! Don't you just love looking (and drinking!) that liquid gold? I enjoy sitting by the fire and sipping warmed juice with cinnamon. Yum! emoticon

    THE LAST TIME I MADE UNFILTERED HOME MADE APPLE JUICE, AFTER I SEALED THE JARS AND PROCESSED THEM, TWO DAYS LATER THE TOPS STARTING BLOWING OFF THEM. THEY WERE WORKING IN THE JARS ALMOST LIKE WINE AND HAD GOTTEN "HARD". SCARED ME HALF TO DEATH. THE REST SEEMED FINE SO MAYBE IT WAS JUST SOMETHING WRONG WITH THOSE FEW JARS. I NO LONGER LIVE WHERE I CAN HAVE A GARDEN AND I REALLY MISS CANNING. YOU ALWAYS KNOW WHAT'S IN YOUR FOOD WHEN YOU DO IT UP YOURSELF. IF THIS IS YOUR YARD IN THIS PICTURE, IT IS BEAUTIFUL!
