I'm very proud of what I canned especially since I didn't have the proper equipment. What I did have was a silicon mitt, a too small pot that only fit one can on it's side side at a time, and gobs of determined time. However, one must take in account that when one is in a place that has moisture in the air and a storm is coming which has even more moisture and creating a colder outside than inside one might think twice about canning tomatoes, apple pie filling, and apple butter...maybe. I can now say all my walls are clean.lol. Oh, and that the kids like to doodle.
