I believe Susie is talking about canning vegetables from the garden.

It's a little too early for me, Susie, but when the time comes I'll stew some tomatoes and blanch some green beans to tide us over through the winter. Nothing like a helping of "fresh" garden beans in the middle of January. Cloud 9

I think its cool that people still do this. We don't here though. I would honestly have no clue how to do any of that stuff and most things that people probably do it with I wouldn't eat. :haha:

We have canned Apples, (fried and sauce) Green beans, and we are going to make and can tomoato sauce, and probably lots of other stuff. We are still doing to apples and green beans. We also dry and freeze stuff, too, and store potatos and onions.

Farmer Girl, I have a really, really good recipe for homemade apple pie filling if your Mom is interested. I'm hoping to can up a bunch of that soon, myself.

We haven't done much canning here yet. It's just a little early for it, for most of the foods. But soon!

I had no idea what 'canning' means until I read Rob's explanation. I wish I know how to can foods...I have no talents! bawling

Me too, Lily, me too!! Especially in this ridiculous economy we're in right now, with no relief in sight. It might be a good idea to learn. It actually might be kinda fun...maybe doing it on a Sunday or something.

I LOVE this recipe! It isn't strongly spiced, tastes better than any store bought apple pie ever thought of tasting, and isn't runny in the slightest. I don't know who came up with the recipe......I just know that it's from a newspaper clipping from years and years ago.

Apple Pie in a Jar

4 and a half cups sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
3 Tbls. lemon juice
1 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
10 cups water
Peeled and sliced apples, to fill seven quart jars.

Peel and slice apples. Mix all ingredients EXCEPT lemon juice and apples in a pan. Put on medium heat until bubbling and "syrupy". Add lemon juice. Fill hot clean quart jars with sliced apples, packing tightly. Pour hot syrup into jars, over apple slices. Put on lids and rings. Process in hot water bath for 25 minutes, or in pressure cooker for 10 minutes at 10 pounds pressure.

You can use the same recipe for peaches, but omit the spices. Also for cherries, omitting spices, and adding 1 tsp. almond flavoring to syrup after removing from heat.

This almost---I repeat, almost---gets me in the mood for fall! Wink Sounds yummy! Thumbsup

The apple pie in a jar recipe sounds similar to my mother's recipe!

We've canned beans, beets, and carrots and have blanched peas, broccoli, and cauliflower. I think that's it! ~laughs~ We may be doing apples today.

It might be the same one! Thumbsup It was from a syndicated column.

Amy, I know what you mean. I'm not sure I'm *quite* ready for Autumn yet, myself.

I am!! It is starting to feel like it already here, and the fair is going on, (even though they did it a little earlyer this year. The only bad thing about fall is next comes winter....

:haha: Reasons I am glad I still live where I do. It will cool off here and feel like fall in Sept and then get cooler as time goes on and gets to winter. We don't get much rain during those months. Feb. is usually are rainier time. I do love rain though when we do get it. But no snow, sleet and all that sort of stuff. If that happens here then we are all in trouble. :Hahaha:

Actually, here in California, we can experience the four different seasons as well. A lot of people... when they think of California, only seem to think of the most famous southern california with it's beaches, etc... but actually, there is much more to it. Depending on where you are you can experience all 4 seasons very well as you can see from all the california pictures below. :sillySmiley:

Summer


Winter


Spring


Fall


Living in the central valley locates me around the middle of the state, so I have many places nearby where I can go when I want to go to the snow, the beach, etc... happy1

Yeah, that we don't get here... unless you live at higher elevations, near the mountain... then you will get snow on the ground lol
What we get here in the central valley during the months of January and February... is just enough snow to cover the lawns, lol.... so there are days when things look white but by 12pm, it's melted... lol

Hey, if you ever come to California in the winter... you should stop at Yosemite, there is a cute little chapel there... that a lot of people stop at all year round... but in winter it specially looks magical... check out this pic:
