It's a lot of work

I learned that in my adventure yesterday. And it took much longer than I expected. And the pressure canner made me exceedingly nervous. But at the end of a long day, I have 16 pints of shelf-stable, ready-to-eat beans.

Although I won't let it stop me from continuing, I sincerely hope that the work, time and anxiety lessen over time as I get used to it.


  1. They are beautiful! It will definitely get easier over time, right? I'm so excited you used it!!!

  2. I just bought a bunch of dried beans. I hope I can cook them when I need them.
