Do You Have This Same Problem After Canning?
On Labor Day I tried canning for the 2nd time in my life. Unlike the 1st time I canned some salsa, all these jars actually sealed.
This time around I decided to do some research on proper canning techniques. So of course I went to youtube.
It appears that conservatively 3/4ths of the population of North America has posted a video on proper canning procedures. Which pretty much leaves only me to watch them.
After watching about a dozen 'How To Can' videos I realized that I was canning supply delinquent. I needed some gear.
So I went shopping. After stopping into 3 different stores looking for jar tongs ... (for those of you not in the 3/4ths, that's a real thing. And you should have some.) ... I found what exactly what my life was missing.
I acquired the Jar tongs, a wide mouth funnel, a big ass ladel, and a Ball Home Canning Rack. Who's kitchen inadequate now!?
I sliced, diced, simmered, and boiled. My inner Amish was on fire. I pulled a dozen jars, each filled with 16 ounces of jalapeno happiness, from that hot water bath. Great Grandma Nora would have been proud.
But now, the problem. I don't wanna open any of these jars. Ever. How can I sully my creations? It's art!
