We ate a yummy meal, healthy and nourishing, Talked more, sharing chapters of grace in our lives .
After Dolly and Paul left, I cleaned up the kitchen and pulled out my Carey Canner - I purchased this canner for it's ease of use. I had 2 Quarts of Chicken Spaghetti sauce ( I served it on Zoodles) left over and wanted to can it for future meal - The Carey is perfect for this! Jar it up, set the buttons and go relax! Now I could freeze it, however, long time ago before I started canning, and I had a house full of teenagers, I would make a 22 QT batch and freeze it in a large deep freezer - easy peasy. But I found out Steve doesn't like sauce after it is frozen. Now I have a small chest freezer - no like and no room for freezing!
I processed my 2 quarts, and a first for me , I used Tattler Lids ( Tattler lids are reusable and supposed to have a 10 year life)
I was a little nervous about trying these, read everything I could and then chatted with a few canning friends that use them. I am happy to say it was a success!
And since I had the canner out, I made 8 1/2 pints of pumpkin pie with out the crust.
Because of food allergies, no crusts, no egg, no dairy. What is left and is really tasty. Pumpkin, spices, a little brown sugar, a little pinch of clear gel to help it set - faux pie filling. Great for a treat or even a breakfast.
I ran two batches with almost no effort.
My day today started with reading Proverbs 4
I was so blessed by the 18th verse; "The Path of the just is as the shinning light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. There is always more light, more love, more grace for us, each day holds the opportunity to fill our lives with that light and become a beacon to those who are around us. I always want my home, and my life to be a beacon of light.
Thank you for stopping by,
Thanks for sharing this, Ginny.
What a wonderful canning system you have - as there is just me there is plenty or room in my freezer now, so I don't can. Love the scripture verse, and what a wonderful Sunday you must have had with your friends
Thanks Maxine and JAnet!
Maxine, my family just keeps growing in different directions physical and church - and exciting season! xoxo
