    Carrots - How long to blanch?
    Last years all had a sort of 'woolly' texture
    I store them in sacks in dry sand but they don't last really well

    Last batch I cut into disks, cooked until BARELY cooked, still very crunchy, cool in ice water, then freeze. Tasted good for months.

    Thanks - I'll give it a try with a small batch and cook them in a few weeks time to see if I get it right before doing the rest

    OH my Goodness, I am covered in tomatoes, I have two roasters full of tomatoes and am going out looking to find another.

    I am making up for last year.... nothing, not one tomato last year.

    ....Now where to borrow a roaster?

    Sorry Jaydee.

    I didn't read through all the responses but if anyone on the planet is canning green beans or making apple butter and canning that..I'll take a few uhm, cases....of each :).

    Lol, tlkng1, I've done both but you'd be hard pressed to get my kiddo to share. Pears will be ready soon & I will be making more sauce & butter. Yum! I like pear better than apple. Have cantaloupe fruit leather going in the dehydrator, not one I've tried before and hope it turns out ok.

    I got absolutely no fruit this year, between the squirrels and the chipmunks and the birds. Wanted to make some apple butter and peach preserves, so I guess I'm going to have to buy apples. I am getting ready to have cherry tomatoes to my eyeballs though, any suggestions on what to do with them?

    Yay! A canning thread!
    This year, so far, I've put up 21 pints of green beans, 25 pints of wild blackberry jam, and 27 pints of salsa.

    I discovered this year that you can buy canning jars at thrift stores! They were only $.25 cents a jar! Yeeeeee!
    We're going out to pick apples tomorrow for applesauce. Yay!

    Making apple butter right now, my house smells so good! Pears are starting to ripen so will be making pear sauce & butter this week too. I love fall!

    Made peach wine, blackberry wine, beet wine and a batch of apple cider. Should be set for a while.

    Got into making some savoury jams. I have a roasted garlic and onion jam made with beer, a green tomato garam masala jam made with mead and a bacon chilli jam.

    Also did some crab apple jelly, sour kraut, pumpkin butter a and last night a crab apple butter. I HIGHLY recommend the latter, it is awesome, and bright red!
