Thank You GardenWeb Canners!
Today I successfully canned my first batch of homemade chicken stock with my new pressure canner. Pressure canning has intimidated me for years, but I finally bit the bullet and bought a canner last week.
I have spent the last week poring over all the old threads about pressure canning. Thank you so much for such a treasure trove of information! I went into my first pressure canning experience feeling completely confident.
I'm really excited about the possibilities in front of me with regards to home canning. This coming weekend I'll be trying a baked bean recipe from the ball blue book. Maybe next week I'll tackle a soup. I'm just thrilled. I don't post often, but I read almost daily, and I wanted to make sure I sent a heartfelt thank you to all of you who have contributed to the pressure canning threads over the years. So much great information- and so much encouragement. Thank you for making my first pressure canning adventure a piece of cake!
