Post #9039123

I'm a veggie garden addict too - as well as a gardening addict 9 and a fellow Ontarian). I do a lot of produce processing in the fall and can relate to the "steamy windows" issue! Here are a few hints: don't bother steaming the veg. After doing it dutifully forever, I realized that frozen veg from the shops is NOt blanched and put my beans inthe frezzer raw for a change. They are better that way! And i 'cheat' on the processing time fro canned goods - my strawberry jam is highly sought after because I cook it to a minimum! It keeps its fruity flavour that way. I never do the water boilr thing but just put cooked goods staeming hot into hot sterile jars and there you go. As long as they form a vaccuum (and they do) everything is fine. Enjoy the next season! I can'y wait! Geat article, thanks. Sabine
