i love canning
the love of gardening and canning was passed down from my granny & granddad
to my mom & dad
and on to me
and i'm happy that my daughter (babs) also has canning fever in her blood
we're all like a family of squirrels...always putting something up for winter
(i think we have a squirrel gene)
we have a garden, but the rabbits ate our green beans....twice!
so...... i was thinking no beans for us booooo
yesterday my mom went to my sister in laws & picked up nearly two bushels of green beans!!!!
she (marianne) had a bumper crop this year and offered her excess to us
i started canning yesterday afternoon & i'm still going strong today
i'm thinking i'll be canning tomorrow as well
given that i now have a surplus of green beans
i'm giving dilly beans a try
green beans bathed in brine & the spicy goodness of garlic, mustard & dill seed & pepper flakes...yum!
ahhhhhh, is there any sound sweeter than that of canning lids popping when they seal
