It's not easy being Green

Isn't it amazing how many different things can come to mind now with one word - Green

I have been busy over the last few days canning green beans. Luke loves homemade canned green beans, they are the only one's he will eat. So, this year I planted four rows of green beans so I could can them. This was the first time I have accomplished this by myself(with minimal phone calls to mom!). And I didn't blow anything up! The first step is picking the beans - here is just a small portion of what I have been able to pick - 1/2 bushel makes approx. 12-14 quarts.

After picking comes cleaning and clipping. I opted to use scissor, I think it is easier than snapping them all by hand.

After stuffing them into jars with 1 tsp. salt, adding bowling water and putting the lids on, they go into the pressure cooker. They needed to be maintained at 10 lbs. of pressure for 25 min. - No distractions!

Finished product!
