Ended up pressure canning some green beans and wax beans for the first time. 19 pints. Next is going to be pickled beets unless I get another batch of beans. Iím looking forward to trying some soups, chili and meat. Chickens are giving me 12+ eggs a day. Food supply is looking okay so far!

I did 9 pints salmon last Friday and 13 pints of salsa today. Want to do some sweet corn here soon too..I also got couple gallons sauerkraut brew in basement. What I like about things I can. I can take jars to my camper leave them there and there is no refrigerator or freezer. Is nice when things are not taking up room in freezer here at home. And if they go a little long in jar they don't freezer burn like long in freezer.. I have jars jelly that are 4-5 years old. Don't scare me a bit to use them if lids sealed and not rusted.
Might surprise your self what you decide you like to can.

Canned 28 quarts of Blue Lake green beans the last two days. Tomatoes are starting to ripen and will put up 40 quarts of those for Chili but will use a water bath canner for those.

We can tuna every year. Have had salmon as well. Any fish might work. For pints of tuna, fill jar with fresh tuna, cook 100 minutes at 11 lbs of steam pressure. Last for thee years I know.

There's a lot of information out there on canning.
I like pressure canning , shorter times and once you get it down pat.
Fast and easy to do.
I'll never buy a water bath canner again.
I can use the pressure canner for it, and my great grand kids can use the same canner.

I grow Blue Lake bush green beans , and really like them.
Pick them clean , ( don't leave any part of a bean on plant ) and they keep producing all season.
Leave a half part of a bean, and the plant will stop producing.
Great canned or frozen if blanched first.

I have never had luck freezing beans always get rubbery, So I pressure can. I have never pressure canned tomatoes. How long and at how many pounds do you pressure can them.

Just blanched some green beans a few days ago, laid them out on a cookie sheet, froze them, then vacuum sealed them for the freezer. They hold up well for us that way. We did some regular pressure canned beans also. Beets are all done. Got another crop still growing that we replanted some more.

Check out the USDA guide, it depends on what elevation you live at. Also your local ag extension might have stuff, ball blue book is a great one to see. There are many things not in the USDA guide, or the ball blue book because some time ago a few industries paid the USDA to not study it. The main thing to understand is that you just want to kill the botulism spores, which is not easy depending on the food, juice, etc. How do you ensure the center of whatever your canning is at the same temp as the rest? The older USDA guides are better in my opinion, they actually have useful info on them.

Milk for example is one of those, you will hear don't can milk, etc etc. I canned it at 15 psi, for 60 minutes in quart jars, you get condensed milk that is great for baking.
I have pressure canned pickled eggs the same way, although I have not tried any, they are still sitting on my shelf and I cant remember but I think I might have done those 15 PSI for 90 minutes. One of these days I will take it to my extension to get them tested for bacteria to see. This is just what I have done though, use your own mind to determine if you want to do it. Something else that most canners do is heat the food up to where the botulism toxin is destroyed as a double check, so boiling food also works after to make sure.

We prefer blanched and frozen beans over the canned ones. We also freeze our carrots, sweet corn, broccoli, cauliflower as well as the beets. We blanche for 3-4 minutes and put in pint bags except the beets which get fully cooked. Most pressure canners come with very good books on usage and times etc. for many products. If you don't have one you can download what you want or need. I can most of my pickles and relishes and all of my tomato products and I do that with two pressure canners.

Found some times in Ball Blue Book for pressure canning tomatoes. I Blanch, Peel, Chop then Boil with 1 TSP Salt and Sugar per quart then jar and water bath like my mom taught me but will try my pressure canner on the next batch. 17 quarts today will do more in a couple days as they ripen. Sitting now listening to lids ping as they seal.

We hot pack our tomatoes just like my family has done for many generations. No need for a canner on them IMO. My wife made a dozen or so pints of applesauce yesterday, those got water bathed. We almost never use the canner as we prefer frozen over canned in most instances.

Is there a advantage of presser canning stuff that can be water bath canned? It looks like more work to me.
