    I like the name black pearl and hopefully we will have fillies. Star has sired almost 70% fillies.
    This is kctops call and I will allow her to make the final call. I keep my word. Shalom

    DBA, I still like that word Shalom.....I don't know how you'd fit it into a horse name, but it is a really pretty word!

    Kiara, I can my own food from the garden every year....you will need to find a CANNER PRESSURE COOKER and be ready to spend at the very least, about $100 for one that is large and has psi gauges and the ability to change the psi for different foods - you'll need several cases of pint and quart jars and you'll want a pot with the capacity to do at least 6-8 at a time in order to make it worth your while.

    Jelly is the only thing I make that doesn't go thru the pressure cooker - veggies HAVE TO or you'll get sick. You can also cook meat in your pressure cooker when you aren't using it for canning - I haven't done that yet but I hear it is faster and tastier.

    Get a book on canning - you can't randomly put water in a jar with stuff and then stick it in there - each veggie and such has a very strict recipe and time limit/etc to make it safe and you'll need a good book to give you that info for example, the two I use are:

    Http://www.amazon.com/Ball-Complete-Book-Home-Preserving/dp/0778801314/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1365600061&sr=8-1&keywords=canning+recipe+books
    And

    Http://www.amazon.com/Jarden-Home-Brands-21400-Ball/dp/B001DIXG9A/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1365600061&sr=8-3&keywords=canning+recipe+books
    And then there is a little cheat sheet type book that comes with your canner/pressure cooker that helps, too.

    Make sure you look for a CANNER/pressure cooker - not just a pressure cooker - like this: Presto 16-Quart Aluminum Kitchen Pressure Cooker Canner - Walmart.com it is similar to what I've got - altho one of these days I'd love to get once of those fancier ones but this will do for now!
