Q and A: where to put washer and canning potatoes — 2 Comments

  1. Talking about men canning, my husband cut up a bushel of green beans last year for me to can. My mother used to do this as she lived with me but she passed away in July, 2012 at 93 yo. My son helps me can applesauce by running the victoria strainer which I have trouble doing due to repetitive motion injury. Even though they don’t do it all their help is enormously appreciated.

  2. I used to can the small potatoes that they USED to throw away. I put them in the washing machine to wash them and then put them in the jars with salt and boiling water. My husband loved to take a jar of those and a jar of canned meat and make a soup when he was out camping.
