This is how we do it......
First.....you pick em'
Second......you bring them in and you get LOTS of helpers to snap and break them
Third.....you wash them and get LOTS of helpers to pack them in the jars
Fourth.....you put them in the canner and follow directions, and maybe say a little prayer for all to go well.
Fifth......you might ask questions like Jeremiah, " whose canner was that?" (me) "it was my moms." ( Jeremiah) "Why doesn't she use it?" (Me) "because dead people do not use earthly things." Hosie says, "that was not a good question to ask!!" It gave us three a laugh!! I took a moment to tell them about our works for the Lord and that is all that we will take and they will be tested by fire and what we did in Jesus name will come through the fire but all else will be as stubble and burn!!
Sixth.......take them out of the canner and hear the tops "pop."
Seventh.......Start over with the next process and get your husband to help because the children have scattered!!!
We were able to can 21 quarts from 5 gallon picking
We picked 23 gallons today!!
Thank the Lord for his provision!!
