My first stab at canning

I wanted to bring up some peppers to the Oink but they wont last that long so I decided to can them. Wittdog talked me through the process.



I have 6 pints of Cowboy Candy, 4 pints of Pickled Red Cowhorn peppers and 2 pints of Pickled Cyanne peppers. They look good. Hope they taste good.

John: It looks like this.

Canned stuff is great. (around Feb..) We do around 3 to 4 bushel of tomatoes each year. Along with jam, pickles, and other things that are local grown. Nice job Bill.

For the red cowhorns and cayannes I cut them up and put them in a sterilized jar. Made a simple brine out of vinagar, water, garlic and salt and boiled the brine. Then pored it over the peppers and put the jars in boiling water for 15 min. Then took them out and put the lids and band on them. It was easy. The cowboy candy I did the same with out the brine.

Big Wheel, Hope you are feeling better. I have not thought of chow chow for some time. Do you have a good recipe?

We used to get it in Amish country in Penn. and eat it on everything from hot dogs to using it in tuna for sandwiches.

I also decided to try my hand at canning for the first time this summer. So far, I've canned 50 quarts of tomatoes!
