"Kathy, There are some things you don't want to pressure can. I use it to can homemade soups, green beans, tuna, and used to use it for meats before I quit eating it. If you put the food in the jars raw, then process it for the required time, I…"

"You know ...I never really took that into consideration. I just wanted an easy solution I guess. Your right Anne. SO now I am with Anut B..I need to get some wholesome recipes. In processing them...does that tend to make the product mushy for you? "

"Last summer I had a local grower that sells at our Farmer's Market give me more tomatoes than I knew what to do with, They were cracked and could not be sold as "perfect" at the market. I made jars and jars of tomato sauce. I cut the…"

"Thanks Anne, I love how you explain and give reasoning behind doing things a certain way, very helpful! Can't wait to harvest and start canning. Hmm, guess I'd better plant first, LOL "

"The onions, garlic, peppers and herbs are known as aromatics. Sauteing them in oil allows them to release their flavorful oils into the olive or veggie oil. When you add that to the rest of the sauce, it helps flavor things. The water bath is for…"

Aunt B, SW MO Z6b replied to Kathy Roberts's discussion Canning in the group They Canned...So Can You and I
"Awesome on both recipes and thanks Anne. Questing on the spag sauce, the oil you saute the peppers and onions in, do you add that to sauce also? And if processing in water bath, how long? "

"For spaghetti sauce, I use a recipe from the old Tightwad Gazette. Makes about a dozen quarts of sauce. I don't eat meat so this has no meat in it, but with the problems associated with canning meat products, it's better to make it without…"

"Anne, would you care to share some of your canning mix recipes? I don't plan to do dill pickles anymore as DH doesn't eat them, I would be more interested in a good spaghetti sauce recipe and bread and butter pickles. "

"The whole reason I can my own food instead of buying the stuff in the grocery store is to avoid the types of chemicals that are used in these mixes. Mrs. Wages mixes are full of additives and preservatives. She uses maltodextrin which is a form of…"

"Charlotte, I do feel blessed that my husband shares my passion for gardening. Your harsh climate in Oklahoma does make it especially challenging for you, but I'm guessing it also makes gardening even more rewarding when your efforts pay off."
