Some canning done
For the past few days I have been catching up on the canning after being gone for a few days. We made 7 pints of barbecue sauce and 5 pints of pickled jalapeno peppers and made some hot sauce with a few varieties of hot peppers. The hot sauce really bites back.
Today I picked sweet corn and put 28 quarts in the freezer off the cob. The freezer is almost full. This gives me a sense of security knowing we will have food in the event things in our country go south in the near future. The root cellar is almost complete and next will be building the shelves to hold all the home canned foods and bins for storing potatoes and other root crops. This is the time of year when all we do is can and preserve for later use. So goes life on the homestead. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
