What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Put 'Em Up List


I was very (VERY) bad about listing my canning in my sidebar this year (actually, I neglected my sidebar terribly! tsk, tsk) but I did keep track of it on paper. Here it is~ before I toss the list in the burnables and start fresh for the new year. As you can see, I got a pressure canner last year! ;-)

( Qt. and P. are pretty obvious, but the j stands for 'jars', when I used a mix of sizes.)

I canned:

17 qt. canned meat, chicken and beef
7 qt. squash

10 j. zucchini relish

13 qt. sweet pickles

2 qt. volcano pickles

8 j. jalapeno jelly

20 qt. pears

18 qt. spaghetti sauce

12 qt. grape juice

5 p. grape jelly

7 p. grape syrup

23 qt. Hurricane Lee Beef with or without tomatoes. (H.L canning done without power.)
6 p. pork sausage
7 qt. spaghetti MEAT sauce

9 p. elderberry syrup
23 qt. applesauce


In addition to canning:


I
froze bags and bags (and bags) of:

huckleberries

I
dried pounds and pounds of:

Here's to a new and, Lord willing, ABUNDANT year!
