Puttin' Up!!

Puttin' up!!  That's right, I made  apple butter, sugar free applesauce, beef stew, and swiss steak! All in one day!   Here are pics from my adventures:
                                                    Applesauce and apple butter supplies.

This is my least favorite thing!   I think I need a new food mill!
Apple butter simmering in the crock pot.  I let it reduce all night!
Sugar free applesauce!
Prepping stew veggies,  I found cut up celery and carrots on markdown! See them in the top left corner. So I  cheated a little-I won't tell if you won't!
I found my round steak on mark down that morning.  Couldn't pass it up!

My bounty for about 6 hours work! Doesn't seem like much but I guess I  am slow at canning!!

Oh well, it sure will taste good later this year!!

Home Canned Blessings,


  1. You have been busy and you are making me hungry! :)

    I picked about bucket of tomatoes the other day. I have canned some already this season but today i made some sauce to freeze...

  2. I wish I had tomatoes! I had emergency surgery in May Just before time to plant them. Maybe next year!
    Thanks for stopping by and I love getting comments!Thank you!

  3. I really want to can but I tried a few times to garden unsuccessfully and I would love to get that much out of 6 hours. Always good to take your time and do it right :) Hoping to get a good deal on canning supplies and start the process maybe next year. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Thank you for sharing at Back to the Basics for Tuesdays with a Twist!
    Have a wonderful week!
