Another canning day
Well the beans soaked overnight and I got the chili beans made and also canned some pinto beans with ham. I am usually the only one that eats em. I ended up with 14 quarts of chili beans for making chili and 8 pints of pintos with ham chunks. We do use a lot of chili beans in winter making chili. This is my kind of convenience food. Its easy to open up a jar of beans and have a meal. All the jars have sealed and will be put in the cellar tomorrow. I guess my next canning project will be to get the ham out of the freezer and get it canned up before it freezer burns. All good projects for cold rainy weather.
We have had rain all day, starting about 3 am this morning. The creeks are up and there is a tide in the river as well. We never get flooded out here but do get flooded in at times. Which I really don't mind. That guarantees no one will knock on the door. No I'm not mean, but a rather hospitable person. I do like company from time to time. But till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
