"Does anyone can their own fruits and vegetables anymore?" Yes Ma'am! Mof, I canned 18 half-pints of sweet pickle relish just last evening and juiced a flat of garden tomatoes on Monday. The juice I've frozen in chunks for chili soup this winter, am not canning that.

If the pears are nice this year, I may can some pear halves. And I need to make apple butter and apple pie filling (canned) this fall.

So... yes, some of us still do "can."


Hi Kaye,
That's great! I knew there had to be some of you out there. Canning your own food is so much healthier; no preservatives or other additives. Wish I had the supplies, "crops", and time to can, too.


Susan I just canned 24 jars of
blueberry and 28 jars of Mayhaw
jelly. (Mayhaws are a tart berry
grown in the South and make a
wonderful jelly.) I think I have
one of those booklets, it was my
Mom's. I have one that tells you
how to make a good coffee and one
from Arm & Hammer baking soda that
is titled Good Things to Eat. It is copyrighted 1933. I love the
picture of the girl on the front.
Those were the days...I guess.":O)

The graphics in the Jello book are fabulous! I just read an apron book that had the two gals with the yellow aprons in it. Imagine that!
