Canning Time...

Its that time again.  Rich and Barb were here for the weekend and they brought 41 pounds of beans with them.  Barb wanted to learn how to use a pressure canner.  We sat on the porch with the boys snapping beans most of the afternoon, then popped them into jars and into the canner.  Twenty five minutes later in a flood of steam we had her winter's stash.  There's nothing like fresh local food and the security of knowing not only its origins but the hands that prepared it.
