So, this is my before pic from my second batch of canning for pickles, first batch for beans about 2 weeks ago...
|I mix green beans and yellow wax beans.|
They look pretty in the jars and taste just as good!
And the after...
|24 yummy pints of beans for the cold winter months!|
I think I ended up with about 15 quarts of pickles (not pictured)
With the 18 quarts of beans yesterday, and my previous batches, that gives me the equilivent of 100 pints for the year, which is just enough for this hungry family of 5. For pickles, I'm up to 40 quarts and 12 pints. Those we share with family.
Next up...TOMATOES! Which means there'll be a little bit more color in my pictures. :)

Diced tomatoes for in Chili
Enjoy the rest of your summer everyone!
