I had asked my mother on the phone the other day to go to the thrift store if she got a chance and look for me some more canning jars. With my plans to expand the garden this year I will be putting up a lot more of our food and could use some more jars..........well to my surprise when we walked into the house this is what she had found at the thrift store for me, for $8.00!!!!!!! Needless to say I was very excited! Thanks mom! I am so blessed to still have my mother in my life.
I was thrilled that the Ball Blue Book for canning was still in the box in fact, other than some water damage to the book the whol set is like new. I'm sure the book will come in handy, it has a lot of great information and how to's on canning and preserving food, it tells how to use the water bath canner for high acid foods like tomatoes and fruits (I also have a steam canner) and how to can in a pressure cooker (on my list of items to purchase this year) for low acid foods like green beans and even how to use a food dehydrator (also on my list). It also has tons of great recipies.
