The Big Harvest

Canning is one of those things I vaguely remember my grandmother doing, but had never tried myself.  Well, I can now say that I've done it.  So far this year, I've put away 21 pints of pickled beets and 7 pints of pickled dill carrots.  All contents are fresh from our garden this year, which makes it even more exciting.  Next year, I'll have a better idea come garden planning time, now that I know what I can more easily preserve.

The canning was all made easier with our new American 921 pressure canner that's capable of doing 14 pints or 7 quarts.  This weekend I'm going to give an Apple chutney a try.  I'll post the results.
