Canning peanut butter soup
I have a favorite peanut butter soup recipe. Ingredients: peanut butter, tomatoes, rice, broth, onion, garlic, green pepper, olive oil, and bay leaf. (I prefer to cook the soup down until it’s fairly thick.) Do you think I can safely can this recipe?
This is one I think I’d probably pass on. There are no tested recipes for canning peanut butter. Probably with the other ingredients it would be okay, but I’d just make it fresh or freeze it, if I were you. — Jackie
Your compost looks wonderful, you are lucky to have so much. I noticed in your back yard you appear to have an outdoor wood burning furnace. Do you use that for heating your home or out buildings, etc.
It is a wood boiler. But it was a leaker that Will welded and welded on. At first we thought it held water and were tossing about the idea of using it to supplement our wood heat in the house so we didn’t have to get up and add wood to the stoves at night. But they DO use about twice as much wood as our wood stove does, and that is a concern of ours. Right now, we just use the boiler to heat water for our hot tub. Will had made a heater from two old hot water heaters that were junked. But they took several hours to heat the water. After finding out that the wood boiler leaked, we aren’t considering it for the house heat. Maybe in the future, we’ll buy a new one. Maybe. Until then, we just throw another log on the fire. — Jackie
