Here's some of the canned goodness I put up this weekend.
I ended up with a 3 day weekend since Monday's jury duty was cancelled. Not to waste the extra time off I got busy. These jars still need to have the rings removed and be washed but I was too tired tonight, after all tomorrow is another day!
Totals for the weekend canning spree:
21 pints of salsa
5 half pints of bacon grease
8 pints of ham
7 pints of vegetable soup (leftovers in the fridge plus 1 jar of salsa added)
9 half pints of yellow wax beans with new potatoes
Do any of you have one of these?
These cheap netting type splatter covers that you use in the microwave have a great new purpose! They are perfect for straining oil or grease for reuse. I used mine to strain the bacon grease and it did a superb job. Just lay the cover slightly dipped in a 4 cup measuring cup and pour the grease in. Fast & easy clean up too, a little dish soap and scrub it against itself and it's done! They are about $3, found this picture of one on amazon so they are still available.
