While it's lots of work, we do enjoy our home-canned vegetables, Here are the fruits of our weekend of work:
Speckled butterbeans ready to go in the pressure canner.
Nineteen pints of butterbeans and 25 pints of purple hull peas:
All of these we purchased at the Farmers Market Friday morning and shelled on Friday and Saturday. I only had one pint of peas that failed to seal, so guess what we are having for dinner tonight?
