Canning 2014

Canning has begun at our home! Little Man always loves to help and this year he is big enough to use a knife and help cut up the produce. We mainly do pickles until we can afford to buy a pressure cooker.  I always loved to can with my grandma as a kid and I am so glad to pass on the life skill to my son. Grandma and I spent lots of hours in her kitchen snapping beans, cutting up veggies and shucking corn!

 

Learning valuable knife safety 🙂

Happy boy right there!

 

I forgot about taking a picture of him packing the jars but here is a picture of a couple of the finished ones.
