I am on a roll and I’m not about to stop now! I finished up all the canning of my Chicken/Vegetable soup last night – 33 jars! Then I put them in the canning cupboard and cleared some room for my chili!
I have been making batches of chili all afternoon and the kids have been me helping out.
My youngest daughter added the beans…
and did the stirring.
My oldest daughter did some tasting and adding of herbs and hot spices.
And my youngest son did some tasting as well.
And once it was approved, with hamburger, onions, tomatoes, beans, herbs and hot spices, we let it cook for a while longer. While I waited I washed the jars and lids.
Now I’m putting the first batch in the jars, while making the second batch and into the pressure cooker they go! MMMMM! 🙂
Well that’s enough canning for me this year! How fun – I love doing it the homestead way when we can. It smells good and I can’t wait till I hear, “Mom can you make some soup?” and I can say, “Get it yourself!!!” With a smile of course :0
UPDATE: I just finished all my chili canning! 28 jars of homemade chili – Old Mrs. Hubbard’s cupboards are no longer empty! 🙂
