  1. Mmmmm looks yummy! It looks as though there is a white residue on the outside of your jars. This is common with pressure canners, but one way to prevent that from happening is to put a little vinegar into the water before you put your jars in to process. Adam
  2. Thanks for the replies everyone!
  3. I still have a ton of tomatoes coming in, but unfortunately this late in the season they will never ripen. Does anyone have any ideas so I can use up all the green tomatoes? Thanks in advance Adam
  4. I stopped by the orchard yesterday to pick up some cider for making hard cider, and grabbed some apples. I started off by making apple sauce, but then I remembered how much I already have, so I put it into the crock and added some sugar, and cinnamon. WOW, I can't believe how much this stuff reduced, I started with a full crock, and by this morning it had cooked WAY down, and the color, flavor, and taste got very intense... Here's a pic. Out of a full large crock, I only ended up with this...

  6. I store meats from Costco. I actually found the their brand tuna and chicken are superior in taste to most every commercial brand you find in grocery stores!
  7. Thank you Darlene! Question, do you feel you retain more of the nutritional value of the apple by cooking down the apples with peels, cores, and seeds as opposed to peeling and coring the apples before hand? Also, do you think it effects the flavor? Adam

While I was unloading my cart, the cashier was just staring at me, and this lady behind me was getting annoyed because I had something like 200lbs of beans in my cart, and was sighing loudly. She asked me in a mean tone looking down her nose at me "You're holding up the line! What on earth would someone NEED all of those beans for any way" I looked back at her, and gave her one one of those animated looks like she had 3 heads and I couldn't figure out which one to reply to, and said "Well, they ARE the musical fruit! Duh!" she got mad and went to another register, and the cashier started laughing... I sometimes find that the most absurd, off the wall answers will get people to NOT ask any follow-ups! Just thought I should mention that I'm still laughing about this days after I first read it. Thank you, I'll be here all week!
