Rather than tackle the mountain of laundry that accumulated while we were out of power (aided by the fact that we were already overdue for laundry), today I took care of 12 pounds of green beans. Hopefully in 2-3 weeks these guys will be crunchy and dilly and perfect.
My favorite part of canning is hearing the little pings that the lid makes as the jars cool and the pressure vacuum pulls it down. Ping, ping, ping. So satisfying.
