Really... vegetables must be pressure canned there is no way around it.See Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of this page.

My husband's favorite vegetable

I enjoy canning beets.
Really I do. Beets are one of MY favorite vegetables. I remember when I was a kid thinking that beets tasted like dirt. What was I thinking?
A real treat.
Especially if you are canning corn right out of the garden or fresh sweet corn from the farmers market. It is not the easiest thing to preserve but oh so worth it!
Hot or mild
Do you use spicy chilies or mild peppers as an ingredient in many meals? Start canning them in pints or 1/2 pints and have a ready supply on hand.
Have carrots ready to add to a stew or soup, is a great idea. Or just heat, add some butter and sprinkle on a bit of cinnamon.
Potatoes are handy for having ready for soups or stews. Or simply boil for 10 minutes and add sour cream and chives.
