We want to give a big thanks to LCAAHC Grow App. Coordinator Wayne Riley for his help with pressure canning. We have never used a pressure canner before and Wayne explained to Ricky and I how to use it, he even gave us the beans to can. They are called Derby beans and are string less and heat tolerant. We ended up with 8 pints. He was right, it’s not difficult to use once you start using it. Now that we feel comfortable with using a pressure canner, we will be canning potatoes next.
Again, thanks Wayne and Grow Appalachia program. We have learned so much about gardening and preserving food. Definitely, my family has been eating healthier home grown vegetables.
On another note, we have had so many tomatoes that needed to be canned. These are Roma and Big beef varieties.
