This last week I got down to the business of canning applesauce, as well as a few jars of pumpkin. While growing up I would help my grandmothers do a bit of canning, and the first year Grady and I were married I did a little more, but this year has really been a growing time for me (choosing not to stress while canning and looking after an infant is the biggest part), and I’ve gotten much more confident with using my pressure canner.
There is something rewarding about putting up food for the months ahead. Seeing the jars on shelves means that you will have a little something to feed your family through the winter, and it’s nice to not have to go to the store all the time.
Here are a few pictures of our days of canning, hope you enjoy.
Have you done any canning this fall?
