Does anyone can anymore? WAAAAY O.T.
Am I the only one left who cans vegetables, etc? I can't remember the last time I met someone who cans or puts food away for the winter.
It's not like I live in the boonies or am in danger of starving to death if I don't can things, it's that I love to know exactly where my food came from and what's in it. Not to mention I think I'm preserving a dying art!
This weekend I canned 17 pints of sweetcorn (bartered with my farmstand lady who loves mosaics), 25 pints of grape jelly (grapes I grew myself), and bought a bushel of apples (already have 4 pints of maple apple jam made and will make the rest into pie apples). I have quarts of frozen tomato puree to make into sauce, tons of bread and butter pickles, and many, many, many pints of currant jelly from my little suburban yard . . . .
Please tell me someone out there does this, too???
