  1. Yep, like Midnightmom said. 2-3 days in the refrigerator and you should be fine.

    Sent you a friend request on FB. It will be under my real name of course. When you get an opportunity I would like to be added to the FB group. Thank you
  3. Veggies are looking good WE2. Let us know if you try the baking soda, peppermint & lavender.
  4. Depends on who on You Tube your watching as to whether I would trust it or not. I have a few ladies on there that I like and trust their methods. Never heard of recanning OJ myself though. You can safely can oranges, grapefruit and other citrus fruit. And you can also can other fruit juices. Might want to do a little research or contact Ball and ask about it.
  5. Jeepers - Was that the Australian lady She's a Bottler's video? I saw that recently and wondered about it too. Basically she is just pickling the veggies so it should be okay I guess. Like the piccalilli relish on the Ball web site -https://www.freshpreserving.com/piccalilli-relish-|-piccalilli-relish-recipe---ball-fresh-preserving-br1134.html I personally think it would be a bit soggy and too vinegary for my taste. I like my cole slaw crunchy and more sweet than vinegary.
  6. Hi Ambergris! Is no one canning this summer? Okay since my last check in I've canned pickle relish without any onions and peppers, sweet pickles, bread and butter pickles, 15 lbs of ground beef, lemon honey jelly and zucchini bread jam. Also got another 25 lbs of ground beef put up in the freezer.
  7. Thanks Kappy! I think I missed the window on strawberries this year. So I'll hang on to the recipe and make it next year.
  8. Been a bit since I've dropped by. Since my last post in this thread I've canned pickled onions, sweet relish, balsamic onion jam and chicken stew. Planning on trying to get some pickle relish done this weekend.
  9. Last weekend, I canned some chocolate strawberry sauce. Got 8 half pints. Had a little left over so I had it on some ice cream.
  10. Ever since I started canning, we can't find a commercial brand spaghetti sauce that we like anymore. We're out so I need to make more this summer. Thankfully still have some canned tomatoes so I can make a sauce and add what I want as far as seasonings.
  11. Yeah time for a little change. Glad you like it. Hi MtRider!
  12. Everything looks great. Ya'll did a wonderful job. Thank you!!
  13. Hi Ladies, I need your expert opinions on the recipe for strawberry syrup at this site - http://jamiecooksitup.net/2016/06/how-to-make-canned-strawberry-syrup/ Does this look to be a safe recipe to can? I'm thinking it is since its got the fruit, sugar & lemon juice, but wanted to double check because it is different from the recipe in the Ball Blue book and their web site. Ball calls for corn syrup to be added. I really don't want to put corn syrup in mine. Ball also doesn't have the tablespoon of butter, but I figure that for the foam. Would ya'll use this recipe?
  14. I caught asparagus on sale for .98/lb and managed to get get 10 lbs canned. Made 7 pint & half jars. Had a little left over for dinner.
  15. I'll be picking up my first Zaycon order Monday evening. Got the 40 lb box of chicken breasts for just under $60. Worked out to about 1.48/lb.
  16. I've always used distilled water with my neti pot. I pop it in the microwave for 20 -25 seconds to warm it up. Much better than cold. Been using it quit a bit lately since our weather here is acting like it's spring. We had a high of 79 the other day. My Azaleas are blooming.
  17. I bought some pouches of food from My Patriot Supply when they had a good sale and I keep them in a food grade bucket with an gamma lid on it.
  18. That poor man! I will keep him in my prayers. Gunny is a handsome fellow.
  19. I store dehydrated apples in quart jars and seal the them same way. No problems. As for potatoes - I dehydrate sweet potatoes for dog treats. I spray them with a little coconut oil. They discolor some, but not that much. I've never tried regular potatoes.
  20. Finally able to get through on my work computer today. Missed checking in to see what's going on.
  21. Got my winter bag ready during the week of Thanksgiving. Threw in my snowmobiling pants the other day since the temps are finally starting to get wintery here. Though Saturday we're going to be a high of 71 with rain. Sunday will be a high in mid 20s. My sinuses are so confused.
  22. Love Linda's Pantry. I'm hoping to try to make some of the Amish Bread she made not too long ago.
  23. I'm late in seeing this, but very sorry to hear about this happening to ya'll. I hope your wife is ok and that they catch these guys. Prayers for you both. Good reminder to always remain vigilant. I just took a self defense class a couple of weeks ago. I'm going back next week to get my permit to carry a baton too. That will be in addition to my CC.
  24. Nope...I'm on the west side of the state so we're not dealing with the fires. Thanks!
  25. Hope you get to feeling better soon, John.
