Canning



We have been getting a lot of green beans, our plants are still really little, but
the beans just keep coming.
Last year we had none at all, thanks to the Ground Hog, so I wanted to make the most
of this years harvest. I normally freeze my beans, but the results don't stand up well, and
my blog friend, Twice Bloomed Wisteria,
had previously posted about canning green beans with directions even I could follow.
I will link them here.
I ended up using a yellow squash that Farmer Dad brought in as well in a few of the jars.
I like them together and figured I would try it.
They look good to me..not as pretty as Wisteria's, but oh well.
I will enjoy them in the winter even if they are not as pretty in the jar!
I plan on doing it again, but we wanted some for fresh eating, so I just did a batch
and a half this time.

Thanks Gals!
I am not very confident canning
anything other than tomatoes.

We did beans two years ago and enjoyed them much more than frozen. Now, if only I had the patience to slice them french style!
I just posted our garden pic, we aren't harvesting yet (except for lettuce)

Your a good example. I hope to learn about canning next year. Thank you for sharing your success.
