Wow!!!!

Those are big heads of cabbage, very nice.

Love red cabbage. Always pick up a jar when I go to the German deli.

Some day I will grow food and can. Picked up a nice book/magazine called "Yes you Can" and it had great easy tips and recipes.

Seasons a little reversed in AZ but still doable especially in the fall and spring.

The biggest head was the size of a basketball ( the one I was holding ). The rest were volleyball size, and those weighed 5 lbs. each!

I'm glad I learned to can.... Both water-bath and pressure. It's a lot of work, but the results are terrific!

If you want any pointers, I'd be glad to help. Most importantly, for pressure canning it is well worth getting a very good canner. My favorite is made by All-American. The one I have is a model 915 and it will hold 7 quart jars.

Thx PG, I saw how big they were by enlarging your photo. No wonder you cut them in half. I will look into that model of cooker.

My German and American grandmother's canned. Everything from jelly to pickles including fish. What a delight it was to go to the root cellar and pick a couple of jars. It's amazing what we keep in our hearts from our forefathers. I'm still to this day thrilled to go to a farmers market because I went with my grandparents twice a week.

I helped and was amazed at the process of canning, the sharing and fellowship involved. Unfortunately if didn't stick with me as I moved from city to city environment.

I often wonder what skills will perish as we become more of a disposable run to the store humanity. Canning, baking, quilting, sewing, growing, fixing with our own hands. Where will that be 50 years from now.

We now have an acre and plenty of room so time to get busy and start planting something.

Thx for listening.

I could talk all day about this and RV'ing!!..... And reloading, shooting, wine making....

I modified my sweet/sour concoction to use local honey rather than white sugar. This is going to be good!

First load getting prepped for the canner!

My dad's side of the family is Polish. Dad's parents came to the US fleeing WWI. I remember my grandmother making some delicious food, and my aunts carried on that tradition.

Here we go!

My other hobby.... gardening

That website makes it hard to tell the actual size of these canners. To give you an idea of the size of the model 915, here is a shot of it on the stove:

The site says that the next model up is a best-seller, but it still only holds 7 quart jars. On my scale of canning, I could actually use one of those that holds 14 quart jars.

Once the pressure gets up to 10 psi, you adjust the heat to hold it there for 40 minutes.

I've heard a lot of people express fear of pressure canners, but I think it's just a lack of knowledge of how to properly use one. The pressure doesn't rise or fall very quickly, but you DO need to commit yourself to paying attention to it.

After the 40 minutes, I'll remove it from the heat and let the pressure drop down to nothing on its own. Then you remove the lid and put the jars on a towel and listen for the kids to snap as they cool off and seal. Then, ready to do the next load.

Oh yes the popping lids, I remember that, the sign of a good seal. And I remember the occasional ones that didn't seal, months later in the celler, yucky.

I'm thinking fried potatoes, and sauerbraten. Or just about anything that goes good with red cabbage!

Yum!

Yes, sounds wonderful! I have a bunch of recently-dug red-skinned taters, too!

Roast duck or goose would go good with that red cabbage. I'm drooling on the key board.

Nice cabbages!! Never seem to pull that off--the dreaded cabbage worms beat us to the harvest.

But, our garlic is done. Currently experimenting with which of 3 varieties makes the best garlic cheese toast. May take a lot of experimentation to figure that out.

First peaches today. Got the QC gal on em right away:



Four varieties of potatos should be done soon--plants just flowering now:



First color hint on sunflowers:



Strange gardening season here in Western Oregon. Warm to hot March into June. Mid June to now cool with occasional rain--hot weather vegies don't like it--melons, tomatos, peppers. Normally sugar pod peas and lettuce are done for, but this year still nice and productive.

Happy gardening you all!!
