Pumpkin cooking day. I did up 3 pumpkins all from different gardens, one was from my garden, another from the store and the last one from a farm stand. Mine and the store bought ones were very watery, the farm stand not too bad, but all three are draining, one in a jelly bag set inside a gallon jar, and the rest in a strainer over a mixing bowl.

ETA: Still have 4 bags of baby bell peppers to dice and freeze.

I finally got around to finishing up the carrots I harvested 2 1/2 weeks ago. I made a batch of carrot cake, this time around I made 1 dozen muffins and 2 cakes with it. Then the rest of the carrots were cut into match-sticks and frozen. I got 1 industrial cookie sheet and 1 normal sized cookie sheet of carrots.

We have apples drying and it smells so good. For those who are afraid to can meat, just be sure to use a pressure cooker and follow the directions for what you are canning. We have canned venison and fish for years and are still alive to tell about it!

Hi Don't worry about the quarts.
Hot jars, Hot liquid...They Will Seal...No Need to process. I never process mine and I've never lost one.
I know that's not recommended but I think they say to process them for legal reasons...a Just in case kind of thing....
But the Frig is a good thing....Just in Case...

It isn't being donated out. I am the school cook and I canned it in the school's kitchen for the school food program. I may just put it in the freezer when I get to work on Monday to be on the safe side. I am just so worried about it being in quart jars, I have only ever canned jam in 1/2 pint and pint jars so the quart jars are worrying me. I did process them for 15 minutes (I am above sea level) and they all did pop before I left.

Recent: two batches of spicy dill okra pickles.
three batches apple sauce (varieties, MacIntosh, Empire, Cortland/Mutsu).
Onebatch Crushed tomatoes

NOTHING with added sugar or fake sweetener. Which is one reason I am home-canning.

I got my second batch of dehydrated apples going last night and got in some real exercise.

Then today at work I went in and made jam for our food program. I decided since we have so much leftover fruit and we are paying way too much for jam ($43 for 12 pints), why not make some myself. I did 2 batches each of Blueberry Jam (from free blueberries), and Apple Pie Jam (with apples that are more than likely be leftover).

A little tip when things start to foam while boiling...Add a tablespoon or so of butter to the fruit or veggies or jams/jellies. This will stop the foaming action.

SILVERWITCH, I had to teach myself to can too. My parents did it when I was young. They didn't start again until I was out of the house. I ended up using a Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook to teach me to can fruits and the pectin packs to teach me how to make jam. One of these years I will teach myself to can meats,fish and veggies. But me and hubby are a little too leery of that.

Yesterday I did up 8 qts Apples in Extra Light Syrup. I hope they are worth the trip down memory lane. First of all they started to turn brown even though I had them in lemon water, then they started float and foam when I was heating them in the syrup. Then the first 4 jars siphoned after I pulled them out of the canner. I gave them 5 minutes after turning them off and the time I pulled them out. The other 4 jars I gave 10 minutes before pulling them out and they didn't siphon. I also got the dehydrator filled last night. I should fill it again but is so windy that I am worried we might lose power. But we haven't yet.

How awesome that you taught some one. I wished I had some one show me years ago. I was always so intimidated. I bought a used canning pot set, picked up a blue book and found out how much time I really wasted. Nothing like putting up the stuff you grow.

A friend from church wanted me to teach her and her daughter to make apple butter. She has a large family and a lot of apples so said she wanted to make quite a bit. She showed up with 2 boxes of apples and lots of jars. It took us 5 hours but she had 20 quarts of apple butter when we were through!

I am almost out of pumpkin puree, so I will have to go look for some pumpkins this week, and I really need to get apples. I am going to phone my sister and get her to pick up some of the carrots. I have a vegan younger sister that can probably put a bunch to use, and a big family over that way. Usually my kids go crazy for carrots, they will finish breakfast and usually head outside to pull carrots to eat, or eat them just after lunch, or whenever they are outside, but not this year because the were later. Most aren't that big, but there are lots.

I froze so much pumpkin puree last year that I don't have to do any this year.

Well I didn't get to run away. I woke up yesterday morning with a plan on digging up some carrots and probably a few potatoes for dinner at FIL's, looked out at the garden while I walked by the bedroom window and said "oh crap", seen that the squash vines looked dead, so we must have had frost. So me and the kids went to harvest 9 am, I was out there until almost noon. I came in to make lunch and work on stuff for dinner.

I pulled a Apple Pie out of the freezer and baked that, then used our harvested zucchini and made 3 dozen muffins and froze the rest for pasta sauce for later. The kids were out until almost 3 pm scrubbing the carrots we harvested. We had 2 huge buckets of carrots. They would have been done faster, but they were playing, arguing, whining. Oh well it builds character, and shows them how much work goes into eating well.

I think I might just run away tomorrow to a farm that is close by and pick up some apples. I do have an offer to pick my own at a parent's house, but I just don't have the energy to do it. Plus I know he hasn't been taking care of his trees for years so I really don't want to waste time picking and ending up with wormy apples. I would have to do it early morning as we are bringing dinner to FIL's house. He has been a bachelor for a couple months now and with BIL visiting and his GF coming up we decided to get together and have a small ham dinner. Then Monday MIL is coming to turkey dinner. It is Thanksgiving Weekend here, so I should be gaining a few pounds.

The upside is I got a new elliptical trainer today. Even put it together myself.

at this time, the only thing I am really getting from the garden are peppers and broccoli. Could get lots of green tomatoes, but don't like them fried and don't know what else to do with them. I heard, somewhere about green tomato salsa, but have not been able to find out what to do to make it.
