Canning Green Beans and Beets

The garden has been generous this spring. I canned 15 1/2 pints of beets yesterday. Canned 5 quarts of blue lake green beans today. They are delish, Green beans for dinner tonight. Should have cucumbers and tomatoes by next week.

Josie, you've been a busy little bee. Our tomatoes are only about the size of a marble - the only edibles we have other than herbs.

The garden continues to give. I canned 7 quarts of Blue Lake green beans yesterday. I opened a jar of the beets that I canned last week and they were great. I used Splenda instead of sugar in them and can't tell the difference.

Josie, I served pickled beets on Easter. We love them but didn't think anyone else in the family did. Our son in law said to please make him some the next time I made them. We don't have a garden but I'm looking for a source that has the extra large cans of beets. I haven't been successful yet. It seems everything else is available but no beets - so far.

Licia, This is the first year we have gotten Beets to grow. I grew them in a raised bed. I don't have any idea where you could find a gallon can of beets to pickle. Have you tried Sam's Club?
