I had a slight beet related injury - and stained hands. Totally worth it.
Yesterday I canned beets. It was terrific. The only downside is that everything ends up pink - including your hands. I like to pickle beets. They are super in salads...and just to eat out of the jar.
Usually I direct folks to the pickyourown site for canning instructions. But one of my friends reminded me lately that sometimes that site is hard to follow. It can be a little visually "overstimulating" so a great resource that I like to have on hand is the Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving - this is the one that I have.
The Ball Blue Book is the go to resource for canning. It is easy to follow, has clear instructions, and has lots of recipes. I never get creative with canning recipes - I always follow the directions to the letter. As far as I can tell these guys are always right on the money. If you are just starting out in canning this is a terrific book for you.
Today is another soggy rain day. But that's OK - I have my beets to make me happy.
Happy Thursday everyone! We are in the summer canning homestretch - what are you canning?
