make them into bread and butter  pickles-- just use the brine from the so easy to preserve book for B&B pickles.  We pick a lot when they are only  2 inches long so I usually pickle those( no choice since larger and the worm or fruit flies get them)  but you can make the slices.  with  the grape leaves they hold together well.

you can *kill* a man with these suckers - seriously, we have zucchinis like louisville sluggers - i just made a huge zucchini lasagne (and one 'untouchable' one for me) and i only used (almost) ONE ZUCCHINI!!  

 

the only canning song i came up with the shop-rite can-can song, but it was an old video and you could get 5 cans of veges in 1983 for a dollar.  what?   :blink:  !!!!!

shop-rite  can can is a new one for me -- we didnt have that quality music in Hawaii <G>.

we used to stuff the monster Zucchini with pizza stuff and  took it to my friends pizza place.

These days I use  a spiralizer  to make noodles form the large ones.

just google spiralizer and you'll find a great tool.

Ken, have any suggestions on a heat source for canning out of doors?  big enough to get the temp high enough.

yes, ken, while we're picking your brain (the part w/o the scissor-holes and grape leaves lolz) :

 

is there a reason some recipes designate using distilled water?  i always use 'boiled' water, unless the recipe calls to boil the liquid, then i just use 'tap' because i'm going to boil it anyway....  just wondering what the advantage/difference is (besides having to buy it!)  thanx!

My favourite things to can are jams and jellies, many savoury ones such as nectarine with thyme and caramelized onion, or apricot jalapeno. One favourite is roasted strawberry with balsamic jam.  Oh, and blood orange and grapefruit marmalade.  I also do my own tomato sauces, salsas and all sorts of cool condiments.  I love it!  It is so gratifying looking at row upon row of glistening jars in the pantry, waiting to use them.  Oh, I love making chile carrot pickles, dilled green beans, pickled garlic...

The base to a turkey fryer will produce enough heat to get the job done.

Ken,

 Just out of curiosity, what happens if you over process something. Say the reipe calls for 15 minutes at 10 pounds but you go for 20, what would be the results?

update:  bread and butter pickles (hub's grammy's recipe - it's awesome if anyone needs a good one)  turned out very well - did not break any jars, but i chickened out of quarts  :P just made a bunch of pint jars.  with grape leaves in them <boy, i hope that is really a grapevine........  my crazy neighbor says it is, it looks like a grapevine.  just for safety's sake, i ate one.  yesterday.  and i'm still ok so at least i know i'm not going to kill anyone.  death by pickles:  bwah hahahahhahaaaaaaa!!!!

 

have some half-sours brining that i'm going to take up to the polish/german experts to get their opinions  :)  vacuum sealed a bunch of beans for the freezer.......  

 

yes, love2, i love those jars of good stuff, even to look at!  thought of you as i'm gathering a bunch of stuff from the pantry to take up with us as 'gifts' -  it's so funny people like home-canned stuff so well :)

When I taught in Guam, we had to use they little iawatani gas  table top burners. It took two cans of gas to get up to 11 lbs of pressure and it took a long time  but it worked.  Usually you can find them in Oriental markets
