can you all post pics of canned green beans and relishes?
I ask first on vegetable forum someone suggested ask here instead. T FORUM? WELL HERE GOES
I CANNED SOME "RELISH" FROM RECEIPES FROM " ALLRECEIPES .COM"
IT SAID TO COOK STUFF FIRST. DUH ....TOO MUCH WORK..... sorry I had the keyboardcaps locked key.
well anyway I heated the jars in the canner and hurriedly added the cut up room temperature peppers etc, then poured the boiing pickled vinegar mixture over the veggies. added seals and rings screwd them on carefully . since water and jars hot. Then put lid on pressure canner . Processed with the small 5lb "ring" on my Presto canner... Book said to process PEPPERS at 5 lbs for 50 minutes for pints.... well they look cooked to me..... overcooked.
Cause otherwise I would have to cook relish add to hot jars , add boiling vinegar mixture then jars seals, then water bath>>..
Now I bought some cucumbers last night(cant grow myself cause of bugs"
Want to add to MY PEPPERS for relish.
course bought some more new jars and new seals for mynolder canning
and my raw packed gren beans processed for like 50 minutes sure look not "green" look overcooked to me...
heck one receipe in my Ball canning book said to cook a relish for hotdogs till thick ... about 3 hours" wow that sure sounds mushy and overcooked..,
also since my BRAGGS AC VINEGAR WAS SO STRONG I HALF DILUTED IT IN THE PRESSURE CANNED RELISH. NOW SINCE I DID the relish , I read not to on the pdf Wisconsin home canning info....
