Canning

8 posts in this topic

I started canning some of my own food items, such as stewed tomatoes, soups, fruit and different things. The initial cost of the canning utensils (pressure cooker, jars etc) is about $75.00-$100.00, but in the end I think it will save me money. I can reuse the canning jars forever and I KNOW WHAT IS IN THERE! This weekend I am going to mka pickle religh with the right vinegar, stewed tomatoes with everything that I want in them and I'm gonna try spaghetti sauce. ;) This might be a good option for some of us!! ;)

We raise vegies, berries and grapes on our tiny city lot, so I freeze most of our harvest. This year we made several batches of our own raspberry jam, and froze strawberries, green beans, tomatoes and yellow crookneck squash. We ate soooo many fresh lettuce, carrot, spinach, and tomato salads from our garden all summer that I look forward to cooler weather and hot meals. I just wish I would have frozen some of that spinach for my soups this winter. :lol:

I would love to try canning but my husband told me "No more kitchen gadgets!" LOL. I do have alot of kitchen helpers. Lets see, dehydrator, pasta maker, bread maker, seal-a-meal, food processor, salad shooter, ice cream maker, kitchen aid mixer and regular mixer, electric can opener, two toasters, hum what am i missing? Now that I have about 10 types of flours, mixes, frozen breads I am running out of room (and we just remodeled :o ). But fter the Prego incident though it might not be a bad idea.

Any words of wisdom for those of use who haven't tried it yet?

I can every year and this year I just made certain I used Apple Cider Vinegar, not apple cide flavored.

If you do a search you can find home canning instructions, or your local Extension office has all the info you need. Try a search on home canning, canning or preserving, you should get lots of results.

I have a great recipe for salsa gluten-free, tomato drink gluten-free, dill pickels gluten-free, we make home made horse radish, gluten-free with right vinegar, saurkraut etc. A lot of recipes on web call for white distilled vinegar, you can substitute Heinz Apple Cider (not apple cider flavored) for all of them. As long as the vinegar is 5% acidity you are OK.

Its important when canning to follow strict cleaning procedures... these are included in most canning site directions.. Also you must process the canned stuff in boiling water for as long as it says. Dont make short cuts.

Vinegar provides two things, tang, tomato juice, pickels and salsa are not good without it. It also provides acidity which is needed to keep the preserved food bacteria free.

If anyone wants my recipes, email me tracimilbrett@direcway.com Been in my family for generations... just modified them to be gluten free, easy. Been eating canned good for 36 years. I love to can, you can all come to my house and learn if you like!! We could put together other fellow canners and teach the ones who have never done it, might be fun. :D Just put up 36 quarts of tomato juice which is far better than anything in the store. When friends come over, they always try to go home with a few jars of this and that...

Pressure cooker is nice and it speeds things up but all you really need is a couple large kettles, jars, lids and seals and the stuff you want to can of course.

Its nearly a spiritual thing for me. My garden dirt is made up of manure from my horses and chickens composted for a couple years. I plant my plants, never use pesticides or herbicides on them, water, fertilize with more horse manure, pick it at the height of ripeness and can it. Circle of life. I can feel my great grandmothers and grandmothers smiling at me when I do it. Sounds silly I know.

However you dont need a garden. I would not suggest you use grocery store produce, its been treated with waxes etc to extend shelf life. But there are many towns and cities with farmers markets. Start small. You can can anything, any fruits, any vegetables and even meats. Its a lot of work but for me, it is so worth every moment.

Again, email me for recipes if you like.

Is this wax okay for celiacs? It's not a matter of canning, here, but just for........regular eating? I would think so cause nobody ever said that you need to be careful of it, but I just want to be sure...........

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
