Don’t let it’s Size Freak You Out!
The canner was so big that I put it in the cabinet and left it there. Three years ago I watched a video on pressure canning and I liked the idea so much that I bought canner online right away. While I waited for its arrival, I thought of everything that I could can. I thought of how would save us money and we would have no reason to eat out. The day came and the canner arrived, my excitement came to a pause, the canner was big. It was big and intimidating so I put in the cabinet.
Fast forward to today after three years of watching more canning videos , I decided that it was time. First project potatoes and I followed Linda’s video on Linda’s Pantry. It was all so easy and the potatoes came out great! I can not wait to can again. We should’ve learned this skill in school in place of pe!
So, Don’t let it’s Size Freak You Out! Until later thanks for coming!
