Sounds yummy, could you post the recipe, I may go get more pears from our friend once I'm done with these I have. Hopefully doing pear sauce and butter today, but who knows how the day will go, it's still early and I haven't been to bed yet.

Canned some peach salsa last week. I decided I needed to make several more batches of it, so that is on the agenda for today. Also got a half bushel of bartletts from my peach guy - am looking for interesting things to do with them (aside from the first on the list Pear-Peccorino Ice Cream -hey, that's freezing them!). Also have a pile of tomatoes that I need to roast, skin and can for salsas.

We did another 2 crocks of Sour Kraut. I'm running low on jars, does anyone know if you can freeze it after it ferments?

My daughter and I canned apple butter yesterday - it turned out really good but got so thick it was "popping" and jumped out and burned us!

I should be doing more green beans, but they petered out on me-I guess not enough water. I only put up about 15qts, which is not much for us. Still, I have 2 freezers already over-full, so I'm not complaining about the beans! I didn't really want to have to plug in the other one, anyway. We picked our first pumpkin, but I won't can that for a while yet, I'll let it sit on the porch and look seasonal for a bit. My blueberries are all done, tomatoes are just starting. Nothing much to put up at the moment. We sold a bunch of our extra zucchini this year. I know I still have bags of shredded zuc down in the bottom of the chest! Oh, and I had the same thing with my pears-either they are not ripe, or they are rotten. My next-door-neighbor used to tell me you have to can them green, so they won't be so soft in the middle.

So far all the apples from our tree are rotten so i don't want to use them. My peas are done, but they were a great snack. I froze a few small bags of green beans. I may do another small batch. I should have enough roma tomatoes to make juice and then sauce.
Anyone have an idea how many tomatoes needed for 6 quarts of juice?

I canned "Pear Mincemeat"
Our pear tree is dropping fruit like crazy, and it seemed an interesting twist.
It even has rum in it!

Geo- I looked at the recipe, it's quite similar to the one I do every year, it's listed in the recipe section of this team. I pressure can mine at 5 lbs pressure for 8 minutes. The biggest difference between mine and that one is the red peppers. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Lisa! I'll write all that down - somewhere. I searched several preserving books, but found only hot water bath instructions.

Did you see today's featured recipe, Autumn Tomato Sauce? What do think of that one? I added a question about canning it. I don't think I'd like to freeze tomato sauce. Have you ever frozen it?

Hi Geo-

I see you in the Gardening Team. I have never tried canning cherry tomatoes. I did look up pressure canning tomatoes. For tomatoes packed in water, it calls for 10lbs pressure for 10 minutes and for tomato juice with nothing added it calls for 10lbs pressure for 15 minutes. I got the info from Balls book of preserving. Hope that helps. Let me know how it turns out. I only pressure can my spaghetti sauce and boiling water bath all other tomatoes.

Glad you joined this team and look forward to seeing your posts.

Hello.
I'm new here, just joined today. I used to can a few things: tomatoes, beets, beans, peaches. It's been a few years. With moving and remodeling I wasn't able to plant a large enough space until this year, WITH a fence to keep out the deer!

Now I'm up to my ears in cherry tomatoes. Has anyone ever tried canning them? Maybe the process would help the skins disappear?

Also, I prefer pressure canning. All directions and recipes for tomatoes specify the boiling water bath. (I tried that once.) I have to guess the pressure and timing. Has anyone ever pressure canned plain tomatoes??

Your peaches make my mouth water. I doubt if they'll grow in my zone 3, but I'll keep searching for a variety. I'm hoping for enough beans to can.

Also I'm overloaded with sweet peppers. The only way I know to preserve them is freezing in bags. Any other ideas? Do they dry well?

Thanks for your help.

Yesterday the dilly beans finally got done. I sorted by peaches and now they are on the counter ready to go. I used the really soft ones to make peach vanilla syrup, It is so yummy. My peaches are freestone, but they were not breaking away from the pit too well, so smushed some, but that's ok, I needed to puree them anyway. Just hope they break off better when I can the peaches and do peach crunch in a jar. So we'll see. But first I have to go to my son's football game this morning.

I've been lurking for inspiration. I haven't canned in a long time -- but I do have a garden and a peach tree. I try to eat as much fresh as possible because my freezer is still loaded. I have tomatoes, tomatillas, and peppers coming out of my ears. I plan to make salsa this weekend. Regular and Tomatilla/avacado salsa.

---Sounds like you are one busy woman!

I just checked our cattle while tomatoes are scalding. Will have them all caught up with canning after I finish these. Have some cucumbers to take care of. Then, I'm through with garden stuff until we get back from vacation. Leaving tomorrow (Wed), so, trying to get things in order (so that I come back to a clean house). Have to finish packing etc. I'm so looking forward to this trip. Won't have to cook, clean, can, freeze or anything like that for 6 days! emoticon

Thanks will try both... this weekend, I picked 2 5qt pots of cherry tom, 15 reg toms, cucumbers carrots and apples. I made and froze apple dumplings (mother in law came just as I took them out of oven and I offered her one, she loved it and asked if it was from her tree. She planted the tree about 25 years ago and still producing.) Also made an apple pie, Amish freindship cake, apple butter. tonight I start my tom sauce. and still have to do more pickles. Busy busy, oh yeah and my 3 yo grandaughter helped emoticon

I have used the packaged spices for dill pickles. it is the only ones this group will eat. I soak mine for 24 hours in pickling salt & water, then rinse well, cut into spears and in 6 weeks, crisp dill spears/

I make mine with alum, not with the packages. My recipe is posted under the recipe section. It seems to do the trick. It also helps when your vinegar is at or above 5% acidity.

Thanks, I did find one on recipezaar, I have found a lot of canning recipes this way. But if you find yours, apple jelly does sound good too. But talk of this apple butter has sparked my interest and I looked for pear and peach butter recipes too. So when I finally get my peaches and pears, I'll make those too.

lisa, would love to give one to you, I had one recipe that made apple jelly, then with the crap left from it you made apple butter and it was really good but I can't find the dang recipe, so I'm hunting on the net for something close if not the same recipe. As soon as I find one close to it I'll send it. I have a new one I haven't tried but it calls for vinegar??? don't know how that would taste.

I didn't realize you were from Mississippi. My sister was in Biloxi (her husband was stationed there) when Katrina hit. What a mess she was 8 mo. pregnant and her husband brought her up her to have the baby. I only like MI winter for about the first month, then I'm tired of shoveling, snowblowing and the cold. Kids love it though, mom can I go outside. I think I suffer from winter depression without all of the sun. I always have to have my blinds and curtains open during the day time to let the light in, drives my husband nuts when he's trying to watch tv, says he cannot see the tv.

Where are you from? Our rain has been nuts too, we actually couldn't get out there without sinking for a week. My dad put on swamp boots to pull our cabbage. Things seem to have settled down as of now, but that could change. We got 24 hrs of rain last weekend. Football is the only activity our 15yr old is in. He just barely passed too, I had to put a firecracker under his backside to get him motivated to get his stuff done. We sent him to Christian School through last year and this year he's a freshman at public school. It's hard not to let him play football, his uncle is one of the coaches. So I just hope he pulls through with the grades to keep playing or his uncle will light into him worse than us, so we'll see.
Hey, by the way if you lived close to me, I'd give you stuff. Hope things work out.

Lisa, My garden is not producing. 1st too much rain flooded it, then no rain when it needed it most, now lots of rain again.I got the tomatoes from an Aunt.
You got it like I had it last year. A Church members sister quit canning and gave me all of her jars, over 100. I had so much fun filling them all up.!!!
We are not letting our 15 yr. old play football this year. Just barely passed English and math last yr.Plus, he is in 4H, JRROTC, & boy scouts.

Kapassons- Thanks for the Goodie. I hope to do pears today if I can get ahold of the guy I get them from. I am kinda jealous that your tomatoes are ready, mine are very green on the vine. So I must wait. I think I was doing them in late Aug, sept. last year. I had a lady give me 60+ jars, free, I felt like I hit a gold mine. I cannot wait to fill them.

I don't, unless it's to make them fit better. My daughter likes to mash them first, but I don't bother. Either way, you just thaw them out and fix up your bannana bread like you would normally, you just don't have to "do it now" quick before they go bad. We've had times when we are at the flea market, and they are closing up, they practically give us the rest of a batch of produce, because they can't pack it back up and take it to the next place and have it fit for sale-it just won't keep. I've even frozen bannanas without pealing them at all, but I don't reccoment that. Then you have to get your hands into the mushy frozen slush to peel them, and the bannan isn't firm anymore, and it just isn't worth it.

This weekend I am going to get my canning jars out and get them all washed and ready to start canning tomatoes. DH wants to do more saurkraut this year. He likes to do that. I would love to do string beans this year, but we will see how much time I have between working and all.emoticon

You can do either, I've done both. Grating is all that is neccessary if you're only going to make bread or something. If you want to eat the pieces as a veggie, I reccomend the cut-up and blanch/cool/freeze method.

Husband has dried some chammomile but that's about it... nothing is ready here yet, well, except zucchini which I do need to put up. Anyone familiar with this? Blanch before freezing or just grate/slide and freeze?

What are you putting up now? My garden was a little slow this year, so all I've done so far is corn. How about you?
