Default Anyone prepping the pantry with home canned goods ?

Well Peaches were early this yr, & doing those tomorrow, & prepping for it today.

I was kind of happy they did ripen early, usually they would start in two to three weeks from today, but I'll be taking kids kayaking in OR then, so dodged a bullet there

What are you canning.

How recent was that break? Is it a clean break or still hanging on. If in the last day or so you could more than likely save it by tying it back up and wrapping where the break happened.

Broke yesterday ... very big branch clean break. Lots of rot in the crotch.

Probably weighs 300 pounds ... not sure how I'd manage to tie it up.

Free looks to have been topped a few years ago and the branches coming out of the 'stubs' are too long and there is for there as well.

The ladies have been canning for weeks. Banner year for fruit trees, cots and cherries.

They pretty much can everything.

Epaphroditos, past No. 8: Dang apple tree dropped a big branch loaded with apples ... wondering what can be done with the mess of unripe apples ...

Here are two alternatives:

Applesauce: Wash, cut into dice-sized cubes, boil 15 minutes, let cool, run through a blender, store in the fridge. Mix with a little honey and cinnamon if you desire.

Dehydrate to make apple chips: build a large tray outdoors, using a table and 2x4 stock, lay in thin painter's sheet plastic. Wash and spice apples to 1/8 to 3/16 inch pieces, place in tray, dust with cinnamon, cover with screen material and duck tape in place to keep off insects.

I've done both, each works great.

Already canned peaches and plums, and made and canned blackberry jam. Waiting on passion fruit to make jelly.

Epaphroditus, those unripe apples will bake up nice. They won't have all the flavor but will still be good. Hollow out center but not quite all the way through. Pack hole with brown sugar and put a pat of butter on top. About 4 of those in a small baking dish at 350 degrees. A ripe apple is done in about 20 minutes, so aim for 30 - 35 or so. Test with a fork to see if they are soft.

If they are close to ripe they will make good apple butter.
