    Someone on there canned a pie! Not sure how that's going to turn out after a while - lol.

    Bee kissed, I had 2 pretry large gardens until this year. We decided to give the larger back garden to the chickens. The upper garden is about 30x35 and will become a screened in butterly house. There I will keep butterflies with supply of nectar and host plants for them to reproduce in protection. The Monarchs will be tagged in fall for their migration.

    So I will be buying my food in large volume to can. I still want good food without chemicals added during the canning process.

    I've canned 8-pints of extra hot salsa a few days ago.

    Today I used my steam juicer to juice my homegrown concord grapes and canned 6-quarts of concentrated juice..:ya

    So jackb?? I googled this and they say it's only good for low acid foods. Is that correct? It's a very nice gadget...Hopefully people realize you can't can corn and the like in it...

    Can't imagine why not. I can corn in a steam canner and/or a BWB canner instead of a pressure canner.

    @Beekissed So how long do you process corn for water bath processing?

    Same as with pressure canning....90 min. We add a thick slice of green tomato on top of every jar for acid and they turn out wonderfully crisp and fresh, unlike when done in a pressure canner.

    Here's a pic of corn done in a pressure canner beside corn done in a steam canner/WB method....they differ in color, texture, taste and appearance due to the overcooking of this tender vegetable in a pressure canner.

    Which of these would you rather eat?

    It says you can use if for jams and jellies, fruits, tomatoes, salsa and pickles and sauces. My wife is the expert so I really don't know much about canning.
