Got lucky too, someone lost their Grandmom, inherited the house, found about 50 quart, 7 x 2 quart and 30 pint canning jars with the funny spring on top for holding them shut till they cool down, got them for free and helped them to carry some of the trash out in exchange for the jars...Garycanning jars.jpg

Just canned 14 more pints of chicken breasts. Got 2 more of broth. That's a total of 10 quarts and 20 pints. I think.

Couldn't pass up the $.88 per pound. Oh, I also froze some too.
Kudos to getting more meat canned! Everyone should be following your lead. My new freezer is supposed to behere Wednesday. Praying I have enough time to get a lot of things bought and in it before all h3ll breaks lose. It certainly feels like big problems are coming our way my friends.

Hopefully, i have a good garden this year to replinish my veggies. Also, we had a bad walnut year, so we need a new supply of those.

If I had one garden wish, it would be to have nut producing walnut trees! They are my favorite! Love them for baking.

And guys, they have been proven to help prevent cancer in...how do I say this...private bag carry-on area. :D;)

They poison the soil 100 ft from their drip line. The poison (juglone) stays in soil for years because of the roots. I cut mine that are close to gardens, but still can't grow any nightshade plants. They start out great then, BOOM.

I have trees in the woods and my neighbor has 3 that he let's me harvest.

My brother said I have too much weight on my second story floor because of canning. I'm afraid to store in the garage because of the temperature change.

I guess I'll have to move some boxes to my son's bedroom to distribute the weight from one room. Where do you guys store and how much weight do you allow? If you could break it down into number of jars, that would help.

I turned off canner and let all pressure out, took off jiggler and opened lid. Stepped away and the ring and lid blew completely off of a can of broth. Greasy liquid went everywhere. The jar said Mason, but it looked a little shorter so I'm guessing it was a pasta jar or something. I don't can in unmarked jars so I wasn't expecting this. The glass didn't break, just the lid and ring flying off. It is a mess to clean. I'm glad I had stepped away. It still splashed on my shirt.
