The Damsel was just sent this list of 50 websites with canning information. She found the list to be quite thorough. There’s even a website for canning squirrel, because it’s important to do it correctly. After all, you can’t take up your WHOLE freezer with squirrel, so you’ll need to can some. **wink

50 Canning Websites

That’s thorough. Let it be known that the Damsel works hard to make the Old School a good place to be.

    There is some sort of quirky karma in that this list is posted this year, when I have absolutely not one iota of produce to can. By this time next year I will have bushels of produce, and will have lost this list. It's just the way I roll.

    Squirrel…good times! A friend of mine in school let me have a bite of her sandwich one day. She told me it was squirrel meat. To this day, I don't know if she was joking or serious…I believed her at the time though! Maybe she was serious! (This was like 2nd grade or so!) Thanks for the sites!

    I think everyone should just 'bottle' the way you always have, or how your mom or grandmother did!!! nobody's died from it yet, lol!!!!!

    we don't need no stinkin' information / extension/ scientific research… :)

    can't say how many times I've heard that.

    Thanks so much for the list!! Now I know what i'm going to be doing the rest of my day instead of actually working (haha). where did you get that awesome bottle? I've never seen one like that before.

      Isn't that a cool bottle? I wish it were mine. I found it on a website that sells antique glass bottles.

    You are my home base for all things homey and useful. I am thrilled to have those links at my finger tips, now, even if I'm lacking the squirrel…

    Love your website. I thought I would add my blog as I have been adding a lot of canning info as of late. http://wheathoneywatermilk.blogspot.com/
    Thanks, for sharing all your info. No squirrels to speak of in SoCal, but we do have lots of opposums…

    I HAVE NOT BEEN DOING CANNING FOR LONG.LAST YEAR I MADE BLUEBERRY AND STRAWBERRY JAM. CAME OUT WELL. I DID NOT USE ANY PECTIN. THIS YEAR I DID BLUEBERRIES WITH PECTIN AND THEY ONLY PARTIALLY SET.THEY SORT OF LOOK LIKE CRANBERRY JELLY IN THE JAR, THE SOLID AND THEN THE LIQUID AROUND THEM. ALSO SOME DID NOT PING.HOW CAN I TEST TO SEE IF THEY REALLY ARE PROCESSED? ILET THEM SIT FOR 5 MINUTES AFTER THEY COOKED FOR 1 FULL MINUTE AT A ROLLING BOIL AND THEN PUT IN THE JARS. I WAS SUPER CAREFUL WITH MEASURING TOO.SO DISAPPOINTING. IREALLY DO NOT MIND USING AS THEY ARE IF THEY ARE SAFE. ANY WAY I CAN KNOW? THE LIDS ARE DOWN BUT DID NOT PING.

      It’s not necessary to hear an audible ping. The test of sealing is just to press on the center of the lid. If it does not bop up and down, but just sits tight, it is sealed safely. So don’t be disappointed! They should be great. If you feel unsure, you can put them in the freezer (or fridge).
      Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Squirrel?!?  Oh, my!  Great resource.  I’ve stumbled it and pinned it so I know I can find it later.  After my doxie brings in another squirrel.  ; )
