Finished the Italian green beans. Glenn picked the last of them yesterday afternoon. Ended up with 11 more quarts canned. Good haul for three rows of beans...20 quarts and 17 pints, plus plenty to eat along the way.

Put the cucumber plants away yesterday. The cucumbers were part of our container garden and produced beautifully. Can't wait to fine tune the container garden next year. I'm already formulating my plans.

I have some 'mater sauce in the canner right now. Only 4 pints, but we are small time and we like it that way.

We did get a new canner so we didn't have to keep "figuring it out" with this pot and that rack and "oh boy, that's too tight" and all that mess.

We got that Granite Ware 21.5q thingy with rack.

I have one probably just like yours, Frank. Have had it for over 40 years and love it. Can't even begin to imagine how many jars I've canned in it. Same for my pressure canner, which is the same age.

I'm thankful for my little electric induction "eye" that I use for water bath canning and for keeping my jars sterilized when I'm pressure canning. I also use my electric hot water pot to keep boiling water at the ready when I'm canning. Both the induction unit and the water pot save me time and steps and help to keep the kitchen from getting stifling hot during canning season. Yeah!

I have a little induction burner, never thought to use it with my granite ware canner, great idea, Katie!

I'm with you, Frank, I grow enough for small batches. Have you used your steam canner? I used mine for the pickled green beans.

I used to make homemade pickles with my grandmother, but I've long forgotten the recipe. Can anyone help me out? I prefer sour pickles.
Thanks!

One of our members posted his grandmother's recipe recently. A couple of us have made it - it's really good and needs no water-bath canning
