As usual the canning season started off with sweet corn. I put up 27 quarts and 40 pints of corn.
From my own garden I was able to preserve:
27 quarts and 12 pints of tomatoes
12 quarts and 56 pints of green beans
11 pints of pickles
9 half pints of hot peppers
7 pints and 9 half pints of salsa (got some of the peppers and tomatoes from a friend, everything else was from our garden)
86 quarts of peaches (not all were off our trees. Some of these were given to us and some I bought at a produce auction)
I also found a lot of free sources for produce. Apples were a big one for us this year. I found a couple different places that had apple trees that the owners weren't interested in having. Yay for me!! I was also able to find places to pick pears and grapes. So in addition to the above I also added this to my pantry...
21 quarts and 26 pints of pears
8 quarts and 41 pints of applesauce (as well as lots of dried apple rings)
3 pints and 12 half pints of apple butter
11 pints and 19 half pints of grape jelly
1 quart and 5 pints of grape juice.
So as you can see, I have been a bit busy. With grocery prices going up I am happy to have a pantry full of healthy, homegrown canned goods for my family.
