There is the list of what I was able to do with it.
10 quarts of corn
several quarts of apple (for pies!)
lots of baby food!
10 pints of green beans
7 quarts of apple sauce
3 pints of apple butter
2 pints of plum jelly
7 quarts of rhubarb syrup

Canning brings back lot of memories of my childhood and I get warm fuzzy feelings! I love it and it makes me feel productive and like my mom! I love being like my mom and I strive to be like her in so many ways. She is a busy lady from sun up to sun down. You should see her pantry and freezers. Throw a chicken butchering weekend in there as well. I love the country life and the do it yourself from scratch food preparations! So thankful to the Lord for his many blessings!
Well I now have my canning all done and my canner and strainer put away for the year. Our pantry shelfs and freezer are full (for Austin as well) and I am now ready for fall. It is so in the air. Time to bring out the fall decorations!
