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...........

    • Hospitals and the ER....will normally ignore your dietary requirements with celiac. If they gave you so called gluten-free food...it had gluten. You have to have your own brought in or ask for plain whole foods. I wear medical dog tags with emergency contact info, allergies, blood type, and medical info on them. And my emergency contacts have been told where I keep emergency room stashes...IE Julian Protein Bar, MRM meal shakes to take up there if I get stuck in the hospital.
    • Hello- I was DX Celiac 2 years ago.  Last week I had a terrible accident, broke ankle and had to be taken to emergency. I was pumped full of drugs mostly Versed and Fentanal  via IV. After the usual couple days of constipation following these sort of drugs I began having GLUTENED intestinal issues.  I've had non stop bathroom runs for 2 days now and everything about it feels like I've been seriously glutened.  I've done some research but found no conclusive answers.  Did any of those things stir up my Celiac disease and cause me to have an autoimmune response? Has anyone had any similar experiences they can share with me?  This is my first post.  Thank you
    • All the issues you said came up after going gluten-free. Three points
      1. Are you sure you eating gluten free? If you eat out good chance your getting CCed, and is everything your eating really gluten free? There are many that are iffy on the market now days and CC can get in on some of the oddest aspects like shampoo, make up, lotion, medication, sauces, spices. etc.
      2. Sounds like your have deficiency issues, what are you eating? Your supposed to eat a varied diet when gluten free, most gluten free processed foods are not enriched...most gluten food is essentially sprayed with vitamins. SO you need to eat a varied diet eating leafy greens meats, eggs, etc. I myself have other limitations and have to supplement what I would get from these. ALSO celiac makes it where you do not absorb all the nutrients from your food I have 2 suggestion of stuff you NEED to take. Liquid health Stress & Energy, Liquid Health Nurological Support, and Doctors Best Magnesium.... these will help with stress, muscle aches, and energy issues. NOW you might need some other things like D and a few others.
      3. Sugars can cause all kinds of issues I know the issues with the craving.....I can not avoid them myself. I use some sweeteners like erythrol, stevia, monk fruit, etc to avoid the real sugar and the chemical BS ones. I make grain free, dairy free, gluten free baked goods, nut butters and snacks and even make a living off of selling them......I have a focus on making everything super moist as I know that is a huge craving for those of us with this.  Try moving to a healthier option if you can spiking your insulin and glucose levels is going to raise all kinds of havoc and the excess sugars can lead to candida or sibo in your intestines.

      Oh and yeah if you think death is bad we had a member have to get a emergency colonstomy. They ignored it and ate gluten and kept on doing it.....yeah having to poop in a bag sounds worse then death or cancer to me....and those are your other options.
    • Your daughter is only 7 years old.    I believe with a strict gluten-free diet, and some time, she will grow. My daughter was diagnosed at age 10.   When she was younger, she was always tall for her age.   She was in the 90% percentile as a toddler.   When she was finally diagnosed at age 10, we noticed that she did not grow at all for a little over a year, and she was at 25% percentile, and shorter than all her girl friends.   (She used to be one of the taller kids in the class) She is 14 years old now, still growing, and she is catching up with her friends, (no longer the shortest).   She is 5' 3'' right now.   She does not have her period yet, so we hope she will grow another few inches.   If she can be 5' 6", that would be a very good height for a girl. I think your daughter will be fine.  With a strict gluten-free diet, of course.
    • Thank you for the info cyclinglady! As far as repeated celiac antibodies testing, I think my dr had me tested for that several months ago, and it was improving. I think that's when she had mentioned that "you're an 8 now and you used to be a 12". That was about 3-4 months ago if I recall. As far as my thyroid, I don't ever remember my dr mentioning anything like Hashimoto or Graves, just that my T3 levels were off. When I went to the dr recently (4 days ago), she had mentioned that I HAVE to take a synthetic or natural Rx for it (like Nature Throid) and said I basically can't just stop taking it, and if I stopped taking it that, worst case, I could end up dying.
