    Watch Linda's Pantry canning videos on YouTube. It's not me, a different Linda. She gives very easy, precise directions. Watch a few videos and you will realize how easy it is.

    I was given an old National #7 pressure canner that is about 60 years old. It sat on the shelf and waited a couple years for me to work up the courage to use it. Now I use it all the time and I'd much rather pressure can because it is quicker and easier than setting up my water bath which I have to do on a propane burner outside. The pressure canner has a flat bottom, so I can use it on my ceramic top stove. Anyhow, don't be afraid of it. Even my old one has safety features so it will not blow. As long as you follow the directions and don't be dingy and wander off and forget to keep an eye on it, nothing bad will happen! :p

    I put up 7 quarts of green beans last night. We ate some fresh for dinner and I did have 1 quart's bottom break in the canner. I've been using a few of my jars to make milk kefir and yogurt in, so I must have damaged that one somehow. It is a bummer to open it up and find beans floating in the water. :\

    Today I do pickles. I need my fridge space back. I have about a bushel of cukes crammed in there!

    If I get some cucumbers I'm going to have to make bread and butter pickles. The Wildbunch has ate through half of mine already.

    I have made three batches in the last year bc MY crew ate through them, too. They all put them on their hamburgers, ignore the onions so that I can eat them.
