Home Canned Pickled Beets

We had an early morning frost on Thursday that killed off what was left of the cucumbers and peppers and made all of the tomatoes very sad looking. So, because of this we harvested all of our beets and the rest of the peppers and cucumbers and over 30 pounds of tomatoes on Friday. 

I set up our trusty Squeezo'......

and proceeded to throw in the little yellow pear tomatoes in whole with a small screen size to run them through and jar up the pulp for later, I ended up with 2 quarts.
We then switched screens and went on to seed and core the Roma's before running them through and freezing the pulp (2 gallon bags worth) until we harvest the rest for a big day of canning spaghetti sauce.
I'll do more tomatoes today or tomorrow and check the garden for any more ripe ones. Then I'll probably have to harvest the green ones and let them ripen inside for even more sauce, unless I can find some good canning recipes for green tomatoes.  
Anyone have some suggestions?  

We ended up canning 15 pints of beautiful pickled beets on Sunday.

Well, that's it from the Cabin for today, think I might do a bit of craftin'.
So until next time ........

Take Care and Happy Harvestin'

  1. The beets look so pretty in their jars. My Mom used to can pickled beets. I've always liked them.

  2. I have thought about canning things. My paternal grandma did peaches every year. I never have though and don't have the slightest idea how to start. The beats look good.

  3. My mom used to love pickled beets. When I was little, she fell asleep and the jars had exploded. Never did get those stains off the ceiling, lol.


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave your thoughts behind. They are truly appreciated and help keep me motivated to continue doing the things I love.
