Well Janice forgot to mention that the day yesterday was spent canning carrots. after eating several (a lot) meals and singles, Janice went out yesterday and pulled the rest of the ripe carrots, got a full five gallon bucket. We spent the day scrubbing, trimming, and slicing (food processors are nice) the carrots. Then on to filling jars and canning.
We didn't use salt so that the carrots could be used in other dishes without the worry of too much salt. Just cover with boiling water in the jars, place on lids and rings, and cold pack for twenty five minutes, couldn't have been easier. We ended up with fifteen pint jars after one broke. These will be a tasty addition to our winter's food supply.
