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

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

lolz!  

 

i am still pickling - the half-sours went over very well - they keep nicely in the fridge for a few weeks if you cut the brine with half water when they are the desired 'sour' - 36-72 hrs is the pickling time depending on your taste.  that was just water, salt, garlic, dill.  the polish nj people approved :)  

 

i'm putting some chow-chow up today or tomorrow - it calls for the stuff to be salted for several hours but i don't want to leave it overnight because it will get too soft.  i have to COMMIT lolz - we also have jalapenos coming in - so i can make some sweet chow-chow and some spicy hot :)

Sounds like you have your hands full with all these goodies. I"m on the road and have not had a chance to can much of anything. Did buy some great fermented pickles and kraut from some company called sonoma brinery I think it was. Really good.  Can't get back in the kitchen until Sept. for a couple of weeks then  head to the Philippines and Japan through Nov.  When I get back aorund thanksgiving I go in for knee replacement and get grounded for 2 months. Then I can pickle again!

 

 

 

 

lolz!

love chowchow!

Maybe we should all have a trading circle -- We do bread and butter baby zuchinni since  its hard to get  decent  pickling cucumbers in Hawaii. When we do, I usually buy them all!

out of all the things we pickle/can, this is the most requested.  i have to hide the jars and give them as 'rewards' lolz.  none for my brother. hahahaaaaa!  :D

 

we *should* have a trade - you probably have something exotic to trade!  the bread & butter pickles are the UGLIEST things i have ever seen in a jar (barring anything in a mad scientist's lab lolz)  haven't tasted them yet.  mainly because after 16 jars i am sick of looking at them ;)  only one of them didn't seal and it's in the fridge.  i'll taste them when we're friends again   <_<   oh, and we used the grape leaves in them again.  i'm not dead yet so i guess they were really grape leaves.  (now i want to stuff them!)

When I first started canning I used this website because I could not find the Ball blue book. I hope someone finds this useful for guidelines it is basic but also includes everything to get you started.

this is the bible if you will, The book "so easy to preserve" by the univ. of Georgia is the backbone of all the USDA regulations. Ball blue book is great too.

I had someone question about okra (nasty stuff). He pickled some and says that as the jars cooled, the brine reduced. Claims it was 2" low over night. I suggesred repacking and processing using more brine. He was curious if this was common and how to avoid it. Any ideas?

ken, are you on the couch yet?!  we also need you to settle the headspace argument!  too much headspace or too little?  which errs on the side of caution?  i get accused of leaving more than 1/4"  or 1/8" <depending on what we are canning))  do i really need a tiny ruler lolz  :lol:

    • Sounds like gluten ataxia, or the form of celiac I have where it also attacks my nervous system and brain. I would get a celiac test if I was you, you have to be eating at least half a slice of bread or a few crackers for 12 weeks before hand and go to your doctor and ask for a full celiac panel. From there you need to be eating it for still and get a endoscope with biopsies to check for intestinal damage. Now to help with the mental issues I will tell your right now a good b-vitamin supplement will help you with the fog and depression a bit. I suggest Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological support one. Take 1 tbsp each 3 times a day. You will notice a huge difference in it. Being liquid it is easier absorbed by your body, if you have celaic then your intestines will also be damaged making where getting these nutrients is more difficult for you body. NOW as to the cheesy bread I hear you on that. I love eating Juilans bakery toasted read with dayia cheese on it.... I was using hte provolone for awhile but am now using the almond bread with daiya dairy free swiss. Love a good cheesy toast and egg white open sandwich with some avocado myself. I also posted a recipe in the baking section where you melt the daiya dairy free cheese shreds and mix them in with the flour blend I use that is gluten-free and make cheesy bread rolls out of them. I have a garlic and cheddar one.....you name just inspired the idea of using a bit of turkey bacon in the cheddar biscuit version.....would be epic
    • Hi,   my history is the following: I used to eat a lot of foods with gluten & cheese together. They would make me seriously happy and and I was extremely content just eating a pizza and bread with cheese and things like this... Now obviously I'd have cycles... where I eat tons of gluten/cheese foods in combination... feel super content and thats it... Then the effects would wear off and I had to start a diet.. where I'd do modified versions of fasting or so for a few weeks... During that phase I'd get very depressed... but after a few weeks of no-gluten... I'd eat bread with cheese again and I felt like I was in heaven. I'd get extremely high from this stuff... like seriously I'd feel amazing... (I guess it's the morphine like effects of this foods)  but after some when I hit age 22 or so I started to get serious trouble... ....   I started getting serious neurological issues from it... like I could't put my words together... I'd have paranoia & feel like everything is unreal... I've been diagnosed with numerus psychiatric issues since then... My main problem right now is that my brain isn't functioning... I can't comprehend what people are saying and when I want to say something my words don't come easily... Like if I am in a conversation for a longer time this issues is barely noticable at all... But if I wake up... and I try to talk... there's no way.. if I haven't talked for a while it's like you could ask me and I couldn't comprehend what you say and couldn't put my words together in the way I'd like to... I feel kinda stupid sometimes... because I know I'm rather smart but when I have a conversation my speech seems very unsophisticated... --- I tried to change my diet.. with varying success... like I would feel great in the morning and feel completely depressed in the evening for no apparent reason whatsoever... at all! And I feel I can attribute this to traces of gluten which feels like this:   ---- When I have traces of gluten inadvertently... I suddenly feel like everything is kind of unreal around me... I feel depressed in a "opiate withdrawal" kind of way... I don't know how to explain it... it's just painful in the sense that I can't just enjoy having a conversation... like I have a conversation but I don't feel "the thrill"... everything is totally bland and I just feel depressed in the background... like I don't want to do anything and no matter what I do.. it feels completely pointless because I can't comprehend why I suddenly feel this way...    And it's not like I feel this way 24/7... that's the thing... it comes and goes and comes and goes... sometimes I feel completely fine in the morning or even for 2 days or so.... and then I feel completely like s$#& and devoid off all satisfaction for 3 days where I feel I'm going completely crazy & I can't talk.. can't comprehend... feel super weird when talking to people... and then the next days I just feel suddenly "normal"... like this relaxed and easy-going feeling in your body and wanting to be social and to communicate and just have fun... but then... when I eat some food and I feel it has gluten.. it hits me in a subtle way... where I suddenly loose all joy in life for days... and then it just dissapears... I've been struggling with this for years now and I can't seem to comprehend or get on top of this issue... Do some of you guys have similar experiences?        
    • Having experienced autoimmune hives (not sure if celiac-related) daily for the last four months (now controlled by a cocktail of antihistamines, thankfully), I would be super diligent about my gluten-free diet if I had DH.  What do I mean?  Like Squirmingitch indicated -- no eating if you did not prepare it..  The itching can drive you crazy.  In my case, I never knew that you can get hives on the soles of your feet.   I hope you feel better soon.  
    • A celiac diagnosis is hard to absorb even for adults.  She is old enough to understand and she now knows that she is different (that's so hard when you just want to be like everyone else).  There is a grieving period that is normal.   Be patient.  If things do not improve, get her some help.  It might be better to hear it from another trusted adult than from Mom.  You are doing everything right.  I know you are loving her and being supportive.  Stay strong and do take some time for yourself, even if it is heading to the bookstore for a hour or so or taking a walk.   Within a few months, there should be some improvement.  Be sure she gets a follow-up test three months after her diagnosis and then another three months later.  Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ Hugs!  
    • Can you get her to drink Ensure high protein? I mix the vanilla one with my favorite chocolate drink so it tastes the way I like. What foods does she currently eat?
