Canning...
 
Anyone ever do any canning? I just bought a pressure cooker/canner for bigger batches of chicken stock, and I've been doing a little canning today. I made some wine jelly earlier (tasty, like fancy grape jelly), and I've got some fig and balsamic jam on the stove now.

I'll make a few quarts of chicken stock tomorrow and can that up, too.

Nothing sweeter than the sound of a cooling set of jars popping as the seals set

If you want jelly, you can't go wrong with rhubarb jelly. Stuff is from the heavens, well, at least my Grandmothers is.

This!
Nothing else like it especially if you're canning produce from your own garden!
Fig and balsamic, sounds interesting.

Wife teams up with my mom and makes pickles. EVERYBODY says they're the best pickles on earth. In the history of mankind. Unfortunately, I'm not a pickle guy.

Mom used to can a bunch more shit too, but doesn't get around to it much. I've heard pickled jalepenos are good. Wife is going to pickle some okra if the goddamn cocksucking rabbits don't eat them.

I would like some pointers too. I am new to it and don't have any grandparents to ask for pointers.

OHHHHHH Wife did some sandhill plumb jelly a couple years ago. I ate some. After I got done cumming all over myself, I went ahead and ate some more.

That shit is ****ing glorious.

My primary focus right now is the chicken stock. I've always only made a couple quarts at a time and I've always just frozen that, but now that I have a larger pressure cooker, I'll make more. However, next spring, summer and fall I'll be hitting the farmer's market.

Why do they call it canning when it's going in a jar? Wouldn't it be jarring? :D

Pickled asparagus, brussel sprouts, and spiced apples.

Hundreds and hundreds of quarts. We hot pack almost everything.

pickled jalapenos are the fugging bomb, YO.

i actually don't pressure cook 'em, just pickle, can (or jar, for you luv), and process in boiling water for a short time. let 'em set til that glorious 'pop'. then wait for a wintery day.

Sand Plum Jelly is the ****ing best.

I can and freeze out of my own garden every year.

My parents do a lot of it. They're 72.

Not sure what I'm saying there.
