Default Re: Whatcha Makin'? Summer Canning 20016

You guys have some wonderful lists! I'm getting hungry just reading about it.

What do you can in a water bath and what do you reserve for pressure canning? I used to do a lot of tomatoes and pasta sauce, but I was told NOT to do the sauce in a water bath canner. (It was something about the acidity, I forget exactly.) I don't own a pressure canner, but I DO have a huge freezer, so I stopped canning the sauce and just freeze it now.

We usually try for a big tomato harvest, so that I can put some up for the winter. I really want to make pickles this summer. Dh had great luck with hot peppers last year and wants to do some more this summer. But none of this produce will be in for awhile yet. I really wish we had berry bushes! (Or cherry trees that actually produced cherries. )
