Hi Sherelle, I just found your blog and I am so happy I did! It is so beautiful! I am laughing a little because I have that same metal collinder (everyone teases me but I LOVE it!)and my husband is cutting grain right now at our farm in Swan Valley. I miss him, they work so hard during this time of year. Great work on the canning! -April Perrenoud Hackbarth

Hey...thanks for the tip Analee...there are 15 of us in our family who get together and cut the corn...we bagged almost 900 quarts, and it only took us five hours. We cook our corn completely,and don't blanch it, so it just slides right off the cob...and, we don't have enough electric knives for the 10 people who are cutting....but if I ever do it by myself, you can bet that I will be giving this a try!

OK missy, I love your blog and when I saw you cutting your corn with a knife in a pan I just had to leave a comment and tell you there is a much easier way! Get a bunt pan and put the corn in the hole, then use and electric knife and cut the corn, the kernals fall into the bowl... its so much easier! We did this this year and it took half the time and the kernals turn out much larger and not so mushy! Maybe next year right? Your amazing as always! ourtaylorlife.blogspot.com!

Yummy! This winter your family will be so thankful to have such fresh goodness to eat. I'm always impressed by you, Sherelle. You are such an inspiration.

Thanks for sharing all you canning pictures, it all looks delicious. Would love to try your recipe for the salsa and sweet pickles if you wouldn't mind sharing. You should collate your canning recipes into some kind of pdf recipe book and sell them off your blog, I'm sure there would be lots of interested people. I would be first in line for one! lol

Megan Mill

i am seriously coming to live with you next summer, so you can teach me how to do all of that gardening and canning! wow!

Stella

I am impressed.You give me so much inspiration! I love my garden, cooking, baking, canning and so on. But I don't have enough time to do all the things I want to do.How on earth do you manage to do all the things you do? I follow your blog. It's always a great pleasure to read it and look at the beautiful photos. You're a very talented person.

I wish I was doing all that canning this year! Last year we did a lot but this year there was no garden and people are hanging on to their extra "bounty" (for good reason!) so I have resorted to drying apples for now...LOL...hope to get some freezer jam and maybe some stewed tomato canned. Hopefully! You are amazing, LOVE the photos!

ronee

holy cow..i love it..i wish i lived closer to you..you could give me some food storage suggestions! here in florida they don't even understand needing to have the space for food storage! anyway..i love the glimpse into your life!

Valerie

Oh my goodness I now understand why you didn't come here !
Wow it is amazing !
The only preserves I made are dried tomatoes (did you see my recipe on my blog ?) and zucchini !
I am impressed !

Wow you have been busy! I have been canning and freezing beans and corn and today it's peaches!

Here's the link to my blog & a tip on how I cut my corn from the cob. It goes sooooooo fast & there's very little mess!
