I love to sew just about anything, but I do terrible zippers. Why?

I crochet fine, but knitting...you don't even want to know.

Canning...smooth sailing...until....SALSA!!! :th

I cannot can salsa or applesauce to save my soul. I try and I try, but it never works out. :he

I have more lid failures than seals. Every single stinking batch.

I did 9 pts salsa last night. Only 3 sealed. I reprocessed the 6 this morning. New lids, freshly wiped rims. I got 2 good seals, so into the freezer the rest go. :barnie

Is it a texture thing for those 2? Is there some special secret to it? Anyone else have the same problem or have that 1 thing they hate to can?

you should try continental/german-style knitting - if you're a crocheter, this style may work easier for you - it did for me...I couldn't knit a stitch doing the 'american/english' way, but doing the continental way, it just clicked.

Here's a great site so you can see how to do it:

Oh I know your question is about canning - I'm new canner and have only canned two things!
