Do I have your attention now? My water bath canner and supplies arrived yesterday and I am itching to get started.
I purchased my supplies for a very reasonable price. I bought a large pot with a lid and canning rack, stainless steel jar funnel, jar lifter, 12 1-quart Ball jars AND the Ball Blue Book canning guide.
I've spent quite a bit of time perusing articles and recipes on Food in Jars and I found a few that I really want to try. I already made Refrigerator Pickles which were a HUGE success in my house. Next on the list is Peach Jam and Orange Marmalade.
